Christophe Dardel

Director of Strategic Partnerships


Christophe Dardel currently serves as Director of Strategic Partnerships of AFYREN. At a time when many of our everyday products are still too heavily dependent on petroleum-based molecules AFYREN is offering to a wide panel of industries bio-sourced replacements, thanks to an environmentally friendly technology that uses natural microorganisms.

Founded in 2012, AFYREN collected more than €70 million funding in 2019, which allows the company to grow from a pilot stage to industrial-scale production. Before joining AFYREN, Christophe served for five years as CEO of EnobraQ, a French synthetic biology startup unlocking the use of CO2 as an industrial fermentation feedstock enabling large commodity chemicals to be produced in a sustainable manner, both economically and ecologically.
