The core of the technology is specialized microorganisms that can capture and convert CO2 into a valuable product. With its dedicated reactor G2F has developed a unique and efficient system for making a high-quality nutritional protein. The process is continuous allowing production of industrial volumes of nutritional proteins.
The future of protein production
G2F work with its sister company EcoFishCirle AS to establish a circular use of carbon. EFC operates land-based fish farms and has developed a propriety technology for CO2 removal from sea water. This will supply G2F with biogenic CO2 as well as being an off-taker of protein.
Further G2F will use green hydrogen and oxygen using the highly efficient electrolysers developed by Hydrogen Pro.
The product is a microbial biomass containing 70% or more of crude protein. Further it contains 6% - 8% fat in the form of phospholipids, 5%-7% minerals of high bioavailability, and 6-8% fiber. The product has a good amino acid profile resembling fish meal with high digestibility.
Use of the product
This microbial biomass has good properties as a protein ingredient in feed for various species. Due to its high protein content, fat and minerals of high bioavailability it is a good source of protein in feed formulations dependent on high protein and fat density.
