Today marks the start of our journey to transform the polluters of today into the providers of tomorrow. The world’s population will reach nine billion by 2050, with increased demand for food and resources we face two huge problems. Firstly, how do we feed the world in a sustainable fashion without depleting resources and destroying ecosystems, and secondly, how to we reduce carbon emissions to avoid the catastrophic effects of global warming?
We’re not saying that we will miraculously provide the only solution required to the above described problems, but we are developing a technology that can help significantly. Using our gas fermentation expertise, we are working on a commercial-scale carbon recycling technology that can take carbon dioxide gas directly from industrial waste streams, and convert it into clean and nutritious single cell protein. This not only reduces the impact of polluting sectors, but it also provides a sustainable alternative to soy and fishmeal conventionally used in animal feed, freeing up more arable land to feed us rather than our livestock.
