Thank you for visiting our website. We have endeavored to give you an idea of our vision and strategy, our entrepreneurial spirit, the social commitment of our company, our intensive research commitments and the outstanding results we have achieved.
No human endeavor can be more exciting than one that simultaneously addresses the three major crisis mankind is currently facing: food security, energy efficiency and environmental sustainability. Our mission is to try to alleviate these by applying the phenomenon of photosynthesis, a biological process that is essential for life on earth, and that has been taking place for thousands of millions of years in chlorophyll microorganisms. Since photosynthesis, driven by light energy, transforms inorganic compounds into organic matter, our task is to obtain from this biomass products of interest to a wide range of socio-economic sectors and ultimately new biofuels that will improve our daily lives. We hope that such new products will one day be able to change the unsustainable pattern of development linked to resource depletion and environmental impact, which global society has chosen to adopt, in particular since the 19th Century’s Industrial Revolution.
It is not surprising, therefore, that AlgaEnergy’s efforts to overcome the stimulating scientific and technological challenges that it faces have triggered well-deserved recognition and widespread support, not just from the scientific community, but also from European, national and regional authorities. We also enjoy the outstanding contribution made by major international industrial players, particularly that of our shareholders, YOKOGAWA, Caixa Capital Risc and the CDTI. All are committed to improving life and progress on our planet.
Finally, I would like to point out that the scientific rigor with which we undertake our business is perhaps the one factor which has positioned AlgaEnergy internationally in a league of its own within these emerging socio-economic sectors. The finest example of this professionalism is embodied in AlgaEnergy’s own people and complemented by the intellectually enriching ongoing contribution made by the university scientists working with us on our R&D programs. Both of these form the engine of change that we seek at AlgaEnergy, as they offer an endless source of imagination -- something so valuable for all creative activity, particularly when it is transcendental. In addition, they stand as the greatest testimony to the tremendous talent existing in Spain within this field of science and knowledge.
I do hope that you enjoy visiting our website, and we are grateful for your interest in AlgaEnergy.
