Copenhagen/Denmark — As a result of this, the company can now enable production of UniProtein in a more effective way thereby positioning Unibio to commence large scale commercial phase before the end of the year. The final upgrades are related to achieving high gas transfer in its unit leading to improvements in yields from the fermentation process. In the unit, bacteria grow by continuously adding oxygen, natural gas, catalysts and minerals. During this process, the natural gas (methane) is converted into a highly concentrated protein, called UniProtein.

Henrik Busch-Larsen, CEO of Unibio, said: “We are pleased to have completed this significant step to our world-beating technology ahead of commencement of our commercial phase. This technology upgrade makes producing UniProtein much more efficient in terms of productivity and energy usage but also helps us maintain a significant lead over the legacy technologies. "
