U.K.-based Deep Branch Biotechnology announced the construction of a pilot-scale gas fermentation system within Drax's Carbon Capture Usage and Storage Incubation Area. Deep Branch's system is expected to produce 7 kg of protein for every 10 kg of CO2. While single-celled protein (SCP) shows great potential to support increasing protein demands and carbon emissions reduction, SCP production requires close proximity to a gas feedstock source. That said, the average cement facility produces enough CO2 to generate 700,000 tons of protein annually. Clients, Deep Branch Technology has achieved a major milestone to validate its technology and achieve pilot scale. Support from the energy industry will be critical for the growth of SCP production.
