About us

We are a young and dynamic team, capable of improving ourselves every day.

We face challenges, we provide solutions.

Our history

Our company was born within the University of Alicante after several years of research in the field of waste management and plastic recycling carried out by the founders of Fych. As a result of those years of work, three technologies were patented focused on increasing the recyclability of plastic products and improving the quality of recycled plastics so that they can be used in high value-added applications, thus contributing to the implementation of the Circular Economy in the sector. The Fych company was born with the aim of transferring the technologies and knowledge generated to the industry and continuing to use our research essence to provide technological solutions to waste management.

Mission, vision and values

Mission

Our goal is to offer the planet technological intelligence to convert waste into resources, contributing to the progress of society while respecting the natural environment and people.

Vision

We want to work on what we are passionate about, which is the development and commercialization of viable and competitive technologies that are recognized among the best in the world in waste recovery, maintaining our independence and freedom to create.

Values

What characterizes us most is our enthusiasm for what we believe in, the attitude with which we work, the innovative spirit with which we think.

CREATEC (IVACE)

This program aims to promote innovative technology-based entrepreneurship, business diversification, economic growth and the creation of quality employment in the business fabric of the Valencian Community, supporting the development of companies whose activities are based on the exploitation of knowledge and technology.

Project "Mechanical recycling of polyaluminum from tetrabriks for high added value applications" Program for the Creation of Technology-Based Companies (CREATEC-CV)

NEOTEC (CDTI)

The NEOTEC initiative aims to support the creation and consolidation of new technology-based companies in Spain. 

A technology-based company (EBT) is a company whose activity is focused on the exploitation of products or services that require the use of technologies or knowledge developed from research activity. EBTs base their business or activity strategy on the intensive domain of scientific and technical knowledge.

The most relevant aspect in the proposals presented is the business strategy based on the development of technology (technology must be the company's competitive differentiation factor), based on the creation of its own R&D lines.

Project "Mechanical recycling of PET/PE containers from sheets and trays for high added value applications"

NEOTEC 2021 Program. Subsidized by the CDTI.
