About my Start-up

Our company produces sustainable proteins through an innovative bio-process that utilizes carbon dioxide as a nutrient and hydrogen and oxygen as energy sources. Our technology uses a highly efficient gas fermentation process that produces biomass consisting of up to 80% high-quality proteins. The protein can be processed into various products, including animal feed and human food applications.
Our solution addresses the critical issue of the growing global demand for proteins and the need for sustainable production methods. The food system is facing a range of challenges, including food insecurity, malnutrition, climate change, loss of biodiversity, and unsustainable farming practices. Our technology offers a promising solution that contributes to sustainability, improves efficiency, and reduces greenhouse gas emissions.

Why your idea is a “winner"?:

The idea is a winner because it addresses pressing global challenges related to protein production and sustainability. By utilizing carbon dioxide and advanced fermentation processes, our solution offers a more efficient and eco-friendly alternative to traditional protein sources. This innovative approach not only reduces the environmental footprint but also taps into a rapidly growing market for sustainable proteins. With a strong team, cutting-edge technology, and a scalable business model and scalable technology, we are well-positioned to transform the protein industry and create a positive impact on a global scale.

What is your current or intended business/revenue model?:

Our company specializes in providing comprehensive services to B2B customers in the production of protein via fermentation reactors. Our core business model encompasses planning, setup, and operation of fermentation reactors that are tailored to the specific needs of our clients. We offer flexible ownership options for the reactor, which can be owned by our company, the customer, or a business partner. Additionally, we source raw materials from trusted suppliers and supply the resulting protein product to our B2B customers. Our revenue is either generated through the sale of our protein or a service fee for the operation of the fermentation reactors.

Do you have any Patent or IP registered (related to the solution that you are looking for an investment)?:

We are currently in the process of finishing a patent and submitting it. Several additional Patents are in planning.

Has your technology already been implemented in any field/sector?:

Fermentation is a process that has been used by humans for thousands of years to create food and beverages. In Europe, fermentation played a crucial role in the production of wine, cheese, and other dairy products. The understanding of the science behind fermentation has greatly advanced over time. Today, fermentation is still used to create a wide range of foods and beverages, and continues to be an important part of human culture and history.

Fermentation is not only a fascinating part of human history, but it also offers a sustainable solution to modern-day challenges in food production. At our company, we utilize fermentation technology to create sustainable proteins that meet the highest standards of quality and environmental responsibility. By harnessing the power of microorganisms to convert CO2 and green Hydrogen into high-quality proteins, we're able to provide a more sustainable and efficient alternative to traditional protein sources. We're proud to continue the legacy of fermentation in human culture while pushing the boundaries of innovation to address the challenges of the 21st century.

Which market and customer need(s)/problem(s) is (are) your products(s)/service(s) going to solve?:

Our first focus is on animal feed proteins, which is the fastest goal to achieve and requires less downstream processing steps. Our goal is to define a process that not only contributes to sustainability but also makes a relevant contribution economically. Our reactor is specially designed for the process to guarantee maximum productivity and high protein yields. Meanwhile we are also developing protein components for the use in human food applications. We want to unlock the full potential of the technology while not wasting any time on our way to scaling the solution.
As we continue to develop our technology, we are committed to transparency and collaboration with all stakeholders, including governments, businesses and consumers. Our vision is to create a more equitable, sustainable, and resilient food system that can provide healthy and nutritious food for all.
