Finns create protein out of air and energy

Finns create protein out of air and energy

Researchers in Finland have produced a batch of single-cell protein using electricity and carbon dioxide, a method that can be used for food and animal feed.


The study is jointly conducted by the Lappeenranta University of Technology (LUT) and VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland.


The method can be further developed for use as food and animal feed, and it releases food production from restrictions related to the environment.


“In practice, all the raw materials are available from the air,” tells Juha-Pekka Pitk√§nen, principal scientist at VTT. “In the future, the technology can be transported to, for instance, deserts and other areas facing famine. One possible alternative is a home reactor, a type of domestic appliance that the consumer can use to produce the needed protein.”
