Originy was founded in 2022 as the natural evolution of the projects conducted inside the R&D department of Plastica Alfa S.p.a. This startup, registered as a Benefit Corporation, has the societal purpose to promote technologies that use CO₂ through microalgae production and extraction of high-added-value elements.
Plastica Alfa is a joint stock company with a 40-years-experience in the water distribution and treatment within the irrigation, hydraulic, and thermohydraulic industries. Thanks to our constant sensibility to the themes of innovation and research, to the collaboration with numerous research centers, universities, and specialized networks, our company developed advanced systems to also distribute water for similar sectors like the one of biotechnology. Plastica Alfa moved its know-how relative to the cultivation methods of various microalgal strains and the specific knowledge in the extraction of high-added-value elements to Originy.
