sustainable business model
Circular economy and bioeconomy model
Our sustainable business model is based on the creation of Integral Multi-product Biorefineries. More specifically, AQUOLIVE has been developed thanks to our olive multi-stage biorefinery process, which is the first of its class at a global level and that differentiates us by key aspects: almost unlimited access to raw material –critical to address the high-volume feed market demand- and integration of our process in the industrial facilities of the largest olive biomass operator (our residues are managed downstream).
This production model, along with our R&D department, makes us specialists in the development and manufacturing of olive tree extracts, allowing us to offer ingredients with high concentrations of oleuropein, hydroxytyrosol, and triterpenes, as well as a wide variety of innovative formulas derived from olive trees with interesting applications.
Our mission is to transfer scientific knowledge to industrially viable projects that create value and improve people’s lives, and the Aquolive project is proof of it.
An expert team
At Natac, we are firm believers in the benefits of Open Innovation. Consequently, we collaborate on several projects with the most prestigious international scientific and academic institutes, as well as entities that are experts in different areas so as to have the most innovative technologies, cutting-edge knowledge, and everything we need to move forward and accelerate the development of new products, so our customers can lead in their respective markets.
