How we work
We cooperate with our clients and partners in the production, market development, and profitable placement of the final product.
We work closely with our customers to select the best technology and bioengineering solutions for the intended application, taking into account the specific site conditions and customer characteristics and goals.
We propose our clients a scale-up approach from a survey of existing conditions and client goals. We collect information, develop knowledge, transfer technology, operate, and teach future operators.
We participate in the most advanced research and demonstration projects in microalgae, funded by the eu, in cooperation with the most prestigious Universities and research centers in Europe.

Our approach
Scale-up from the studies of existing conditions and client goals. Gather information; Develop knowledge; Technology Transfer; Operation; Training; Cooperation in production, market development, and in the profitable placement of the final product.
A4F provides a wide range of services from turn-key plants to very specific development projects, targeting new products or the solution of site-specific problems.
