Fermentalg’s Pierre Calleja was honored by the National Academy of Sciences, Literature & Arts of Bordeaux with the 2015 Jean de Feytaud Dean’s Award.

The National Academy of Sciences, Literature & Arts of Bordeaux has awarded the 2015 Jean de Feytaud Dean’s Award to Pierre Calleja, Founder and Chairman of Fermentalg, a French industrial biotechnology company that specializes in the production of oils and proteins derived from microalgae.

Mr. Calleja was honored for the research, work and programs carried out since he founded the company in 2009, which were completed in close collaboration with Fermentalg’s scientific teams. Today, the company has built up a portfolio of more than 29 families of patents and 111 registered patent titles.

The Award was presented by Admiral Alain Béreau, Permanent Secretary of the Academy, at a public ceremony held in the Academy halls in Bordeaux in December 2015.

Following the ceremony, Pierre Calleja said: “This Award rewards the years of work that have gone into upholding France’s tradition of excellence in microalgae. I would also like to use this honor to pay tribute to the work of the founding father of microalgae research, Professor Claude Gudin.”

Hywel Griffiths, Chief Scientific Officer for Fermentalg added: “I would like to congratulate Pierre for this fabulous recognition of all of the progress that he and the other scientists at Fermentalg have made together, and which forms an outstanding basis for our ongoing leadership in the sector.”

Founded in 2009 by Mr. Calleja, Fermentalg is an industrial biotechnology company that specializes in producing sustainable oils and proteins derived from microalgae. Its patented technology allows it to target a range of global markets, from nutrition and animal feed to cosmetics and health, green chemistry and energy.
