A big thank you to the entire team of AlgaEnergy. I really appreciate the time that you spent with us – I certainly learnt a lot.  I visit many facilities during the course of my work but I have to say I was very impressed by your team -they were all excellent- their professionalism and knowledge were outstanding.  I do hope we get the opportunity to work together in the future.”

“My relationship with AlgaEnergy starts in the year 2009, when we were appointed as their IP Agents to register the company’s brands at a European level. More recently, different patents have been processed for AlgaEnergy at an international level, regarding their processes and technology that allow to efficiently produce microalgae and derivative products, being the result of such patents very favorable, considered as innovative and with inventive activity. 

In my large experience as patents and brands advisor, and having investigated the existing landscape in the sector of microalgae biotechnology at an international level, I have been able to confirm that Spain has increased its patents applications within this field of biotechnology, being AlgaEnergy positioned at the forefront.”

“Microalgae are the basis of the life in the Planet Earth, and have the capacity to synthesize unique molecules that are essential to the rest of living creatures. In the aquaculture, they are fundamental for the larvae cultures. AlgaEnergy provides microalgal biomass of high quality to the Spanish aquaculture, and is an international reference in this forefront biotechnological sector.”


Javier Ojeda
Director of APROMAR

“The aquaculture is the sector of food production that has grown the most in the last decades worldwide, and we will witness important developments in very competitive and strategic sub-sectors in the coming years, such as the microalgae, with multiple utilities and applications, in which AlgaEnergy is already a reference.”


Javier Remiro
Managing Director of OESA Foundation

“The Microalgae Biotechnology Investigation Group from the Institute of Vegetable Biochemistry and Photosynthesis holds a close collaboration with AlgaEnergy since the end of 2009. This fruitful relation has been embodied in the subvention by the company of different projects seeking to deep-dive in the knowledge and management of large scale microalgae culturing. The culmination of this common effort is the construction and operations’ start of a 1ha culturing plant, associated to the combined cycle power plant of Iberdrola in Arcos de la Frontera, Cadiz, within the frame of the European Project Life + CO2ALGAEFIX. It has been 5 years now of direct and affable relations with all the people that comprise AlgaEnergy’s team, of mutual understanding, personal and professional enrichment.”

“In AENA AIRPORTS we promote projects and R&D activities that are notable for its influence in the continous improvement of the management quality and security and the airport’s activity operations, looking for the efficiency in our processes, products and services, within the frame of sustainability and environmental care. Since the project presented by AlgaEnergy fulfilled those requirements, we subscribed a collaboration agreement in 2011 that allowed AlgaEnergy to build and operate its Technological Platform of Microalgae Experimentation (PTEM) in the Adolfo Suarez Madrid- Barajas International Airport. The PTEM constitutes nowadays a potent R&D tool which is originating significant developments and know-how in the scope of environmental improvement and generation of energetic products out of microalgae.”

“The Group of Aquaculture and Marine Biotechnology of the USC collaborates with AlgaEnergy, since the year 2009, in the development of innovative microalgae’ products for the aquaculture sector. The determined commitment of AlgaEnergy towards the innovation, has allowed  our group to develop different and relevant research projects, which has resulted in the achievement of milestones within the sector, such as the biomass production of the strain Isochrysis galbana, one of the cornerstones in the nutrition within marine aquaculture. It is a satisfaction for the USC to continue collaborating in time with AlgaEnergy, and its qualified scientific and human team, in the development of innovative products for the aquaculture sector, focused on the putting in the market products based on new strains, as well as on quality and durability improvements of products derived from the traditional strains.”
