Redefining chemicals production with the power of Nature

Our technology

Photanol leverages Nature’s assets combined with human ingenuity; using photosynthesis to convert CO2 to sustainable chemicals powered by the sun. Circular chemistry producing anything ranging from high value food ingredients to specialty chemicals and fuels. Our plants are modular built in expandable photo-bioreactors that ensure maximal sunlight-utilization and optimal recycling of water. We have proven our proprietary technology with cyanobacteria producing organic acids (e.g. used for biodegradable plastic and in personal care products). Photanol can produce chemicals in a natural, sustainable and cost-effective way; reducing CO2.
