IFPEN has just signed a Boost&Link* partnership agreement with Nenuphar, a company specializing in the production of micro-algae.
The start-up, created in February 2019, has designed an innovative micro-algae production process aimed at increasing their photosynthetic productivity. The process hinges around floating and dynamic skylights that optimally capture, diffuse and dilute natural light within the cultivation tanks.
One of the first markets targeted by Nenuphar concerns spirulina.
Through the partnership, IFPEN is contributing its expertise in the field of hydrodynamics to help develop the innovation.
*The aim of Boost&Link support is to help start-ups and SMEs develop innovations by providing access to our R&I resources and expertise.
