The U.K. government awarded ~$2.5 million to a project to explore CO2-to-protein tech for poultry and aquaculture feeds. The project, REACT-FIRST, is led by Deep Branch Biotech and includes a consortium of industry players for CO2 capture, nutrition optimization, feed production and trials, and stakeholder engagement. The project's production capacity is undisclosed, but widespread participation across the value chain suggests the technology will scale in line with protein demand for poultry and aquaculture feed. The key takeaway here is the high level of engagement from both governments and industry players. Clients, this project may accelerate the production timeline for Deep Branch, which has been a prolonged process for SCP developers.
