CEMPA is funded by the Flemish Government within the protein transition strategy and aspires to establish a completely new collaboration between a steel company on the one hand and aquaculture on the other. In CEMPA, we want to produce microbial biomass rich in protein (>50%) from the real ethanol stream coming from Steelanol for distillation at kilogram scale through a scale up and will test the proteins in fish feed trials. Converting steel-off cases into it in to protein will thereby reduce reliance on sea-catch for aquaculture.
