UNIBIO AND GULF BIOTECH TO DELIVER QATAR’S FIRST UNIPROTEIN® PLANT
Sustainable farming practices are a driving force behind innovation in the animal feed industry. A strategic partnership between Unibio and Gulf Biotech has been formed in order to build a single-cell protein (SCP) manufacturing facility in Qatar. The facility will make use of Unibio’s U-Loop® technology, which uses continuous fermentation to convert methane into Uniprotein®.
This protein will be used as a supplement in fish and animal feed as a replacement for soy proteins. The finished feed’s overall sustainability quotient will be significantly higher than that of formulations using traditional protein sources because Uniprotein® requires relatively less space and water for production. This will draw in a wider range of environmentally conscious consumers.
