AlgaEnergy has been recognized this week with the "Award for Biotechnology Research and Innovation" granted by the organization of the event Expoquimia, a triennial Fair held in Barcelona that gathers the main players in sectors such as biotechnology, chemical or industrial engineering, amongst others. Carmela Pérez Calleja, AlgaEnergy’s Business Development Manager, collected the award handed by Mrs. Carmen Vela, the Secretary of State for Research, Development and Innovation.
AlgaEnergy has been awarded for our agricultural biostimulant based on microalgae AgriAlgae®, in the category of Biotechnology R&D. The jury highlighted the high quality of the projects presented at the 5th Edition of these prestigious triennial awards, and decided to reward an innovative research intense product that is obtaining excellent results since its market launch. In fact, AgriAlgae® is a good example of microalgae valuation and how a considerable effort in R&D has culminated in a great added value product.
The main purpose of these prizes is to reward innovative projects, promoting the application of R&D and knowledge in order to obtain new products that improve the quality of life of our society.
Carmela Pérez Calleja highlighted that "this award is a recognition to the effort of AlgaEnergy’s team and our strong commitment to R&D, which is in our DNA”.
