    A proprietary technology platform based on natural microorganisms

    Based on natural micro-organisms and protected worldwide by ten patent families, our AFYNERIE technology produces seven 100% biobased organic acids. These acids have several applications in six key sectors: human food, animal feed, flavors and fragrances, lubricants, materials science and life sciences.

    The carboxylic acids produced by AFYREN offer a low-carbon alternative to their traditionally petro-based equivalents. They are directly derived from sugar beet co-products and are transformed on the Saint-Avold platform through fermentation, extraction and purification steps.

    This biomimetic process also produces a fertilizer that can be used in organic agriculture, optimizing resources in a completely circular approach. By producing biobased acids that have the same application performance as petro-based acids, and that meet stringent certifications, AFYREN offers a sustainable alternative to its partners, allowing them to achieve a significantly improved carbon footprint.

    A biorefinery grounded in the environmental, economic and societal challenges of the territories where it operates

    AFYREN has raised a total of more than €80 million euros in funding from public and private sources to complete this industrial project:

    To take its technology into the industrial phase, AFYREN chose to partner with Bpifrance, through its Société de Projets Industriels (SPI) fund. AFYREN NEOXY is a joint venture, 51% owned by AFYREN and 49% by the "Société de Projets Industriels" (SPI) fund managed by Bpifrance.

    "We are convinced of the potential of AFYREN's technology in terms of the decarbonization of industry and its ability to promote a strong, competitive and job-creating bioeconomy. This alliance through AFYREN NEOXY is a perfect illustration of our purpose: to enable the most promising industrial projects to find support for their development," said Magali Joessel, Director of the SPI fund at Bpifrance.

    The company has also benefited from strong support from the European Union and the Bio-based Industries Joint Undertaking (BBI JU)1, which initiated the creation of the AFTER-BIOCHEM international partnership platform, which brings together 12 key bioeconomy players.

    As part of the conversion of the Carling Saint-Avold platform, Total Energies not only provided financial support but also offered operational assistance, supporting AFYREN NEOXY as it navigated issues related to the environment, utilities, services and methods, facilitating the industrial hosting of the plant on the platform.
