AlgaEnergy and Yokogawa, united by a commitment to sustainability
Yokogawa's commitment to sustainability was one of the reasons that motivated the partnership & equity participation agreement signed between AlgaEnergy and the Japanese company. The strategic agreement involves an approximately 10 million euro investment by Yokogawa to acquire newly issued shares of AlgaEnergy, making the Japanese company a reference shareholder.
Both companies are united by a commitment to sustainability. In this regard, Augusto Rodríguez-Villa, AlgaEnergy’s President, highlighted that, “This agreement is the best possible partnership in the journey to achieve our mission to leverage the potential of microalgae worldwide. We share the same vision for the future, the belief that more sustainable development is possible and that microalgae can be a key contributor towards that objective”.
