Feed from thin air

Californian startup NovoNutrient transforms industrial waste carbon dioxide emissions into alternative protein food and feed ingredients using patent-pending microbes and bioreactors. The organisms transform emissions, along with hydrogen and oxygen, into complete, safe, natural single cell protein ingredients for food and feed.

With a production process that uses very little water or land, and no pesticides or fertilisers, NovoNutrient is combating two problems simultaneously: creating sustainable feed and combating climate change.

The company is testing its product with a pilot-scale plant which is expected to upcycle almost 200,000 tons of CO2 per year.

Could this offer a new closed loop for agricultural practices?
