OUR COMPANY

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 biosourced 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.

Our success is built by a team that shares the same ambition and positive mindset. AFYREN’s corporate culture draws on three core values that have driven our progress and laid the foundation for future achievements: commitment, agility and humility.

COMMITMENT

An unwavering commitment to a more sustainable world.

We aim to prove that reconciling industry and the environment is possible. Our team is dedicated to working with stakeholders every day to reduce our impact on the climate and create sustainable value chains.

AGILITY

A natural agility fuels our vitality.

AFYREN’s agility is innate. In an ever-changing world, we remain poised to react to the needs of our clients — and society at large — as they arise. We stand ready to adapt our strategy and our methods.

HUMILITY

Challenging ourselves with humility, in the service of our ambition.

We address the vast challenges our planet and society face with humility, constantly renewing our resolve to create better solutions. We strive to do a little more every day to advance the cause of sustainability, bolstered by our determination and the contributions of our partners.

OUR PARTNERS

Since AFYREN’s foundation, we have developed the company by working closely with a number of academic, institutional, industrial, and financial partners. The creation of our first industrial facility, AFYREN NEOXY, is the direct result of all of these cooperations.
