About us


Our mission is to create discoveries, bring them into real life and contribute to a better life on the planet Earth.

Our vision is a world of clean air, clean water and without synthetic plastics available to everyone on Earth. The NAFIGATE‘s activities are divided into two main segments, namely nanofiber applications and biotechnology, which concentrate together on three basic objectives:


Hydal Biotechnology   Clean Water     Clean air


We connect science experts and build a global center of excellence to transfer breakthrough high-tech products and innovative technologies to the world market.

We bring to the global market projects focused on the development and production of new energy-efficient generation of nanofibrous membranes for water and air purification technologies, textile industry and cosmetics.

Another key aktivity of ours is Hydal`s biotechnology transfer, which is the world`s first industrial-scale production using 100% waste- used frying oil - to produce PHA biopolymer. The technology is completely self-sufficient in energy. The first pilot factory is being built in Slovakia.
