    • 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.

    • Project kick-off with SECIL: microalgae biomass for flue gas treatment and CO2 sequestration. The project is the first prototype of an integrated reactor intended to provide proof of concept for the capture CO2 from a cement works, which is then used to promote the growth of algae in reactors. The unique feature of this project is that the technology can be adapted to any industry where CO2 needs to be captured. The algae are then used to produce fuel.

    • 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.
