AFYREN is a CleanTech French start-up in bioprocess and microbiology engineering for valorisation of non-food biomass and more especially the by-products of the agriculture and the agro-industry. Our goal is to produce at the industrial scale, some organic acids today mainly produced from a petrochemical process, to address Food, Feed, Cosmetic and Pharmaceutical applications with a much lower impact on the environment (Foot Print Carbon reduced by 38%).

Other products

Afyren has developed a Know How and a proprietary Technology to convert the non-food biomass into bio-based chemical compounds using a non GMO micro-organisms production process. Our goal is to offer to our clients an alternative to the petro-based molecules which represent today 95% of the market and are everywhere in our day to day goods. As a circular economy process, we convert the sugar industry by-products into bio-based organic acids and natural fertilizers (certified for the organic agriculture). We then produce flavours and fragrances, ingredients for the pharma industry, an antimicrobial as a substitution to antibiotics in the animal feed, preservatives for human food and cosmetic, green solvents and many other molecules for the fine chemistry. Our process allows to reduce by 38% the carbon foot print compared with the usual production process from the oil and gaz industry. Afyren has validated its Technology at a pilot and pre industrial scale. We are now about to start the construction of our first industrial production plant to answer to strong market expectations. Afynerie is a sustainable project, reducing carbon and wastes emissions to improve health and food quality, through a circular economy process.
