Biofuel- and Biotech Companies

Biofuel- and Biotech Companies which handle with Algae

Algae Biotech is a company founded in 2008 with the head office in Spain and a branch office in the Netherlands. Algae Biotech’s core business started with the idea of replacing the highly unsustainable food grade fish oil with sustainably grown and processed food grade algae oil. This way, we would offer consumers of fish oil healthier and more sustainably produced omega-3 food products and supplements containing EPA fatty acid obtained from microalgae.

The growing of the algae, as well as the process technologies involved have been developed by sister company CleanAlgae and parent company FeyeCon B.V. respectively

Algae Biotech SL’s major shareholder is a Dutch company called FeyeCon B.V., which specializes in the application of scientific and carbon dioxide technology. FeyeCon employees over 40 people from a mainly scientific background, many of which supply knowledge and expertise to Algae Biotech SL and its associated companies.
