Low Land Footprint

  • Relative to soy production, UniProtein® uses 1/25,000th of the land.
  • Consequently, UniProtein® holds the potential to significantly improve arable land use across the world.

Oceanic Effect

  • Fishmeal is currently produced from either farmed or wild caught fish and puts unsustainable pressure on oceanic ecosystems.
  • UniProtein® is almost identical to fishmeal in terms of its protein content and amino acid profile therefore it holds the potential to significantly reduce the pressure on overfishing.

Water Usage

  • Relative to soy production, UniProtein® uses 1/300th of the water.
  • Most of the water used is recycled in the U-loop fermenter to reduce its consumption.
  • Reducing water usage in feed production is a critical sustainability factor.

CO2 Effect

  • The CO2 profile of UniProtein® varies depending the source of the methane.
  • When bio-methane or flare gas is captured and utilized, production of UniProtein® leads to actual GHG reduction.
  • UniProtein® provides additional positive CO2 impacts.

Unibio is part of the SDG Accelerator, which is a United Nations Development Program (UNDP) aiming to accelerate business solutions with Sustainable Development Goals (SDG). The program is funded by the Danish Industry Foundation and is being tested since 2019 in Denmark with 30 Danish small and medium-sized industrial companies, after which the aim is to roll it out across the Nordics first and globally next.
