AlgaEnergy has been included in the ‘Ones to Watch’ list, a selection of Europe’s best companies in terms of business excellence, published by the ‘European Business Awards’.
AlgaEnergy has been selected for second time in a row as one of the top companies in Europe and included in the ‘Ones to Watch’ list by the European Business Awards. The biotechnology company has been nominated to receive the distinguished “Innovation Award”.
The nomination highlighted some of the innovations developed by AlgaEnergy that allowed the company to successfully launch microalgae-based products in different markets, such as the range of agricultural biostimulants AgriAlgae®, as well as the company’s projection and its relevance to develop a strategic sector for Europe. In this scope, AlgaEnergy is in fact the only known microalgae company in the world with presence across the whole value chain, from state-of-the-art genetic engineering -for biofuels exclusively- to culturing technologies and extraction processes. Furthermore, in environmental terms, it is the only company in the world eliminating real gas emissions of CO2 from other industries, using it as the main nutrient to grow its microalgae, in an example of the kind of circular economy Europe’s future has to be based on.
‘European Business Awards’ is the largest cross-sector business competition and one of Europe’s most distinguished recognitions, which seeks to exemplify and reward the business excellence across Europe. Augusto Rodríguez-Villa, AlgaEnergy’s President, highlighted the importance of this nomination and notes that “to receive this relevant international recognition is very gratifying, and moreover, it provides support and visibility to our innovative company within its current internationalization phase”.
