The company has established a unique methodology which includes scaling-up from prototypes in our Experimental Unit, to commercial-scale facilities, and develops SOPs for optimized algae production, according to production goals, promoting integration with local industrial processes and using the industry’s best practices. We have a long track record of working with leading national and international academic research groups in algae biotechnology, as well as with some of the largest microalgae producers, worldwide.

A4F is part of a Portuguese bio-industrial group focused on the development and deployment of technologies for bioprocesses, using sustainable raw materials and renewable biological resources, to feed our future.

We are technology-driven, specialized in the production and processing of seaweeds, microalgae and other microorganisms for many applications, such as food, feed, cosmetics, pharma, fertilizers, wastewater treatment, soil remediation, bioplastics, biofuels, and others.
