About usTeam

Where the road ends, we begin!We're explorers

With breakthroughs, we can turn waste materials seemingly without further use into materials and products with new benefits for all of us. These new materials are also friendly to people and nature.

Our journey is called Hydal PHA and it leads to a sustainable future. Because we feel responsible not only for ourselves, but also for others. We believe it is fair to contribute to a better life for all of us through our business.

A better world based on scientific knowledge and new technologies.NAFIGATE Vision

Nowadays, the fast development of technologies and knowledge is not evolutionary but rather revolutionary. Innovative technologies and concepts are essential for meeting climate goals and protecting the environment.

We aim for a nature-based solution that meets the Sustainable Development Goals.

Company HistoryHistory

2020

In response to the global pandemic, shareholders invested into Nanospider. A factory for the production of nanofiber masks and rolls for the subsequent production of FFP2 and FPP3 respirators is being established. At the end of the year, the factory became a spin-off project by the name of NAFIGATE Park s.r.o. In the same year, we acquired a HOOP project which follows on from the Waste Up! project that aims to implement new business models in the processing of biowaste. Next, we got the ELIIT project which focuses on the improvement of nanomaterial properties. At the same time, we presented an organic deodorant based on the natural polymer P3HB to the market.

2019

We introduced new nanofiber products – Nanocleaner and Ecobrane of the third generation. Under Hydal, we also presented UV protection. We acquired more grant projects, three under OPPIK, one under Horizon 2020.

2018

The Tolleri s.r.o. company entered the company as another strategic investor. The Hydal project received another award in the Innovation for Sustainable Development category and third place in the SGDs Awards. Both Nanocleaner and Air Cartridges won the Excellent Product prize at China Hi-Tech fair.

2016

Hydal biotechnology won three more awards: the Seal of Excellence Horizon 2020, the Eastern European Business Elite Awards and the Top 10 Product Award as a part of Shenzhen Exhibition (China).

2015

We received the Frost & Sullivan award for the nanofiber water purification membrane and Hydal biotechnology, whose downstream is enabled by a pilot line created in collaboration with VUCHT. We were also exploring the application of nanofibers in cosmetics. As a consequence, NAFIGATE Cosmetics was established.

2012

With the help provided by the Brno University of Technology and the Institute of Microbiology of the CAS, we developed Hydal biotechnology. At the same time, the company’s Nanodivision established business relationships with China in order to apply nanofiber membranes for the purification of water and air.

2004-2011

We built upon the Czech technology Nanospider – a licensed device for the production of nanofibers by ELMARCO s.r.o. NAFIGATE Corporation had been established in order to speed up the transfer of innovative technologies to the global market.
