OUR PRODUCTS

Our AFYNERIE® technology produces a family of 7 completely biosourced organic acids: carboxylic acids containing from 2 to 6 carbon atoms. We manufacture our high-quality products through fermentation, and we achieve more than 99% purity for certain applications. This wide range of organic acids enables AFYREN to enter diversified and global markets.

Our natural molecules are identical to the ones that industries usually use and made from petroleum, thereby rendering them simply and instantaneously replaceable. Our 100% biosourced molecules allow you to reduce your environmental impact without affecting the performance of your products.
