Innovative startup – Benefit company

Originy was established in 2022 as a natural evolution of projects developed within the R&D department of Plastica Alfa S.p.a. The innovative startup registered as a Benefit Company has the social purpose of disseminating carbon neutral technologies for the valorization of CO₂ through the production of microalgae and the extraction of high value-added compounds.

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.
