Brevel was founded in 2016 by the three Golan brothers for the purpose of tackling global sustainability challenges by solving the technology barrier which is limiting the microalgae industry from reaching its full enormous potential. In a fully equipped development facility in the south of Israel, Brevel’s talented and dedicated team with a background in engineering, biology, physics, chemistry, management and project execution has finally made the much awaited for breakthrough and developed a large-scale novel photobioreactor capable of disrupting the microalgae industry.
Our grandfather George, a gifted engineer, fled Nazi Germany in the 1930 and arrived at the shores of the United States with what little he had. There, working with own bare hands he founded a company for slow turning motors which later became a great success and was acquired twice by larger manufacturers. George left us his entrepreneurial spirit, his passion for invention and ingenuity and the name he chose for his own company – Brevel, which we chose to take on for the 3rd generation.
