To become an international leader in water treatment and geothermal energy systems..
Sychem is a fast growing engineering company which designs, manufactures and operates both water treatment plants and geothermal energy systems. Its water treatment systems utilize several methods of water filtration that create high quality water suitable for industrial and commercial use. These effective water treatment solutions based on membrane technology reduce energy costs and provide supreme performance. The company’s geothermal solutions use sea and ground water to provide cooling and heating. In both systems, the advanced engineering design eliminate unnecessary maintenance costs and modernize system-wide efficiency for clients that include oil refineries and power plants. Since its foundation in 2002, Sychem has implemented over 100 projects across Greece, Africa and the Middle East and today, it has 130 employees.
Alexandros Yfantis, the founder of Sychem, attended the National Technical University of Athens to study chemical engineering. During his final year, Alexandros was invited to attend a student exchange program in Germany where he succeeded in uncovering the missing link in an experiment that the university had been conducting for over two decades. The Technical University of Cottbus offered him a spot in their Ph.D. program. His scientific work had been awarded and the results patented. After graduating in 1996, Alexandros founded Yfantis Engineering, which provided Alexandros with an initial platform to conduct valuable market research and finally lead to the formation of his first venture, Syncor in China. By 2002 Alexandros had consolidated the two companies under Sychem.
