Our interdisciplinary team is composed of biologists, biotechnologists, physicists and engineers and works alongside universities and strategic partners to promote the use of microalgae as an alternative high added-value natural source for the food & beverage, agricultural, cosmetics, pharmaceutical, nutraceutical and animal feed industries.

With a view towards a circular economy model, our cultivation systems are built from modular process skids, configured to work in synergy with the existing industrial processes

in order to exploit the by-products (CO2, heat, waste water) in the cultivation process and produce high-value microalgae biomass and extracts.

High technical, operational and managerial standards combined with consolidated know-how place us amongst the main technology & services providers in this sector.

BioSyntex was awarded two grants and loans in 2020 and 2021 (Smart & Start and Brevetti+) by Invitalia S.p.A., in the amount of approximately 950,000 and 150,000 Euros, respectively.


Producing more while wasting less


to convert by-products and CO2 into natural raw materials from sustainable alternative sources


to preserve natural resources and mitigate environmental impact


to reduce our dependence on synthetic compounds and promote the use of microalgae in formulating natural products intended for end customers

Our products and services provide support to companies who intend to invest in innovative technologies for sustainable and intelligent industry (smart factories).
