AFYREN, a French greentech company that offers manufacturers bio-based, low-carbon products made using technology based on natural micro-organisms, has signed two new commercial contracts for organic acids produced at its AFYREN NEOXY factory. The deals, involving a European and an American player, are for applications in the field of cosmetics and nutraceuticals.
Climate change has been top-of-mind worldwide this summer, and major economic players are stepping up efforts to reduce their impact on the environment. Like all AFYREN customers, the two new purchasers will be able to use fully circular ingredients in their products and develop low carbon solutions. They will benefit – the French company claims – from AFYREN’s approach, a reliable supply chain based on sustainable, renewable resources that do not compete with the human food chain.
According to the company led by Nicolas Sordet, AFYREN’s biobased organic acids help customers address increasing consumer demand for more natural goods. In the cosmetics and nutraceuticals subsegments, this demand is particularly acute. “AFYREN’s unique value proposition allows its clients to position themselves as sustainable players in their sectors, no longer dependent on fossil-based ingredients — a status that can bring with it clear economic advantages.”
With these new deals, AFYREN now has contracts signed for its products in all six of its priority markets: food, feed, flavors & fragrances, lubricants, life sciences and material sciences. “AFYREN – the company states – is proud to contribute to the transition toward sustainable ingredients in all of these industries.”
AFYREN has now pre-sold more than 70% of AFYREN NEOXY’s targeted production volume of organic acids, underscoring the interest and confidence manufacturers of all kinds have in AFYREN’s industrial development, and opening up prospects for future plants outside of France.
