Gas 2 Feed AS (G2F) replicate nature by recycling carbon using green energy to make food. Carbon is vital and present in all aspects of our everyday life, in food as well as materials. By using biotechnology, we G2F capture and convert CO2 into nutritional proteins for the use in aquaculture. Doing this we copy nature, making carbon circular.
G2F will use CO2 from closed fish farms as a unique source of biogenic CO2. This CO2 is ready for use in a microbiological process without any pre-treatment. Doing this G2F produce a high-quality protein ingredient from a cheap source of carbon. As the energy used is green this is a first example of carbon recirculation that is truly circular without any fossil influence. In the future CO2 from air will be included adding up the source of green CO2 to unlimited volumes, and nature is truly copied.
Gas 2 feed is extending the boundaries of effective, sustainable and quality protein production.
The process of G2F produces food and feed without climate footprint. CO2 is recycled together with green hydrogen, and the technology can be established on non-farmable land and will produce the same amount of food on an acreage usage 1000 – 2000 times less than current agriculture. As Hydrogen is an input the only by-product is water making this process almost water neutral.
G2F use biotechnology and microorganisms to capture of CO2 and covert this into valuable products. G2F supply the core technology to establish and run facilities capturing and converting CO2 into nutritional proteins.
G2F will focus on the use of biogenic as its source of CO2. The first source of biogenic CO2 will be extracted from closed fish farms where the CO2 originate from fish respiration. This will be done in cooperation with EcoFishCircle AS which operates land-based fish farms and has developed a propriety technology for CO2 removal from sea water.
GREEN POWER AND BACTERIA CAN CHANGE THE WORLD
G2F will use green hydrogen and oxygen using the highly efficient electrolysers developed by Hydrogen Pro. This electrolysis will supply sufficient oxygen that can oxygenate the fish tank as well as the G2F reactor.
The core of the technology is specialized microorganisms that can capture and convert CO2 into a valuable product. With its dedicated reactor G2F has developed a unique and efficient system for making a high-quality nutritional protein. The process is continuous allowing production of industrial volumes of nutritional proteins.
The G2F technology recycle CO2 reducing the carbon footprint from various industries. Using biogenic CO2 together with green hydrogen and oxygen will produce a carbon neutral feed ingredient.
The product is a microbial biomass containing 70% or more of crude protein. Further it contains 6% – 8% fat in the form of phospholipids, 5%-7% minerals of high bioavailability, and 6-8% fiber. The product has a good amino acid profile resembling fish meal with high digestibility.
This microbial biomass has good properties as a protein ingredient in feed for various species. Due to its high protein content, fat and minerals of high bioavailability it is a good source of protein in feed formulations dependent on high protein and fat density.
PROTEIN without CARBON footprint
«CO2Protein» will solve the largest and most significant environmental impact of the Norwegian and global aquaculture industry, which is the quest for sustainable and circular feed ingredients. Today feed represents up to 70%-90% of a salmon’s environmental footprint. G2F’s technology will create a sustainable protein without carbon footprint that will be used directly into feed, and thus significantly reduce the CO2 footprint for the aquaculture industry. With the Norwegian governments ambition to produce 5 million tones salmon by 2050 the potential reduction will be large. A sustainable protein can also have huge impact for agriculture with the large feed consumption from cattle, chicken and pigs.
If Norway is to increase production by 5 million tons, with land-based production being a considerable player in this increase. With combining facilities from EFC / G2F, we can create a circular carbon loop that will reduce carbon emissions from fish farming significantly.
