Arbiom announced it had accomplished a crucial step in its Demonstration Programme by completing its fermentation technology's continuous, stable operation.
FREMONT, CA: Arbiom, an agricultural-biotechnology organization that develops solutions to transform wood into protein for feed and food applications, has announced that the company has accomplished a crucial step in its Demonstration Programme by completing its fermentation technology's continuous, stable operation over seven days without contamination or product quality problems.
During the Demonstration Programme, fermentation and downstream procedure stages ran smoothly and continuously to develop over a half-ton of SylPro, which surpassed Arbiom's original target. To complete the continuous run, Arbiom worked with BBEPP, a partner in the SYLFEED Consortium, at BBEPP's facility in Belgium.
Transitioning from batch to continuous operations is vital in scaling-up the organization's industrial biotechnology for commercializing production, as this achievement strongly enhances the process economics of an illustrative commercial production facility.
The constant operation of Arbiom's fermentation procedure in partnership with BBEPP is an essential achievement in commercializing the company's technology for economically producing SylPro, which is a protein-rich ingredient, from wood as a feedstock. SylPro is a nutritional, sustainable protein-rich ingredient that is used for feed and food applications.
According to Muriel Dewilde, Business Development Manager with BBEPP, this significant accomplishment is a testament to the strong partnership with Arbiom and everyone's commitment. The company is looking forward to working with Arbiom to build this successful demonstration as the company continues to scale-up its process technology.
Marc Chevrel, Arbiom CEO said, the company is extremely pleased to accomplish this new advancement in Arbiom's commercialization, with the constant operation and stable, strong process performance, at Demonstration-scale. It is a significant milestone for Arbiom's team and partners, who are devoted to the success of Arbiom's mission, which is to lead the future of food production by commercializing Wood-to-Food technology as a nutritional, sustainable solution for feeding society without harming the planet.
