Afyren partnered with Sphera, which conducted a Life Cycle Analysis for the 2018-2019 period of Ayfren's products.

It was found that the biomolecules that Afyren produces have an average carbon footprint 81% lower than equivalent petroleum-based products. Derived from the reuse of non-food biomass, Afyren offers alternatives for companies using organic acids in human and animal nutrition, flavors and fragrances, cosmetics and fine chemicals, while also reducing the carbon footprints of their own products.

Afyren's production is projected to save more than 30,000 tons of greenhouse gas emissions per year, the equivalent to about 300 million kilometers travelled by a vehicle over a single year.

To continue minimizing environmental impact, Afyren and Sphera, through the After-Biochem European project, will review the LCA analysis and plan to create other sustainability assessments.
