From forest to feed: enable the wood industry to bridge the protein gap

Collaboration with 3FBio/Enough

Successful scale-up of 3FBIO (ENOUGH) technology at BBEPP paves the way for first integrated bio-based protein biorefinery, to be built in Sas van Gent.


Conversion of carbon to ethanol and upgrading to microbial proteins for aquaculture

Microbial Protein Transition

Joint investment in lab and pilot equipment for microbial protein production and processing, with the aim to provide improved services to industry.


Novel microbial protein-based polymers produced from CO2 and CO derivatives


Conversion of Forestry Sugar Residual Streams to Antimicrobial Proteins by Intelligent Fermentation

Baekeland mandate Lotte Van Peteghem

In collaboration with ArcelorMittal this project aims to gain basic technical and scientific knowledge on electrochemical ammonia separation from the coke oven gas coupled to a novel application for ammonia valorization via microbial protein. The integration of several waste resources on site into such a product is complex and ambitious, but can have a high environmental and economic impact.


Integrated cascades of PROcesses for the extraction and valorisation of proteins and bioactive molecules from Legumes, Fungi and Coffee agro-industrial side streams.
