An innovative carbon recycling project which turns industrial emissions into animal feed has secured £3 million of funding from Innovate UK.
Led by biotechnology company Deep Branch, the REACT-FIRST project will use carbon dioxide from Drax Power’s Selby power station and apply its carbon-to-protein technology to generate food for fish and poultry.
The process uses microbes to convert carbon dioxide emissions and turn them into high-value proteins - this is expected to shrink carbon impacts by up to 75%, use minimal water and will not require arable land.
