    • The idea for establishing a technology-based company is born. A4FAlgafuel S.A., dedicated to large-scale microalgae production units, covering all aspects from photobioreactors systems, to raw materials and downstream processing, namely to produce biofuels from microalgae.

  • 2007

    • The first commercial project starts with SECIL Cement Company. Included in SECIL’s policy for actively reducing carbon footprint, A4F screened native microalgae in two locations in Portugal where SECIL has production units – Outão and Pataias.

    • Algafarm construction works completion - a commercial production unit of high-quality microalgae for food and feed applications (1 ha;  more than 1.300 m3). A4F starts operating the production unit and provides training to the team responsible for operating and maintaining the infrastructures.
    • European Research FP7: PHOTO.COMM - Photosynthetic communities in industrial cultivation (Oct 2012 – Oct 2016).
    • European Research FP7: ProEcoWine - Plant protection products from microalgae (Nov 2012 – Nov 2014).
    • European Research FP7: DEMA - Direct bioethanol from microalgae (Dez 2012 – Jun 2017).

  • 2013

    • A4F rebranding to A4F – Algae for Future

    • 1st LiMBAC Course, organized by A4F - Lisbon Microalgae Biotechnology Advanced Course was created to familiarize participants with advanced concepts of microalgae cultivation processes, from lab to large-scale cultivation, and downstream processing, and to present lectures that cover the whole value chain of microalgae market.
