Carbon dioxide becomes a raw material in a large EU project
An international consortium, of which the University of Borås is a part, has developed this process. The process makes it possible to develop new protein sources that can replace today's conventional energy and climate-burdening sources, such as the cultivation and transport of soybeans and wild fish protein.
The process is unique and involves a green paradigm shift for the recycling and commercialisation of low-value by-products into raw materials for high-value bio products.
The consortium includes eleven parties that together cover the entire value chain, from industry, academia, and research institutes.
As a partner in the project, the research group within Resource Recovery at the University of Borås will convert synthesis gas into valuable fatty acids and contribute technical development throughout the project.
The project, which will last for three years starting in September 2023, is being financed by the EU – Horizon Europe.
