In England, Calysta, Inc. announced the production of over four metric tons of commercially representative FeedKind protein for distribution to customers and partners globally. These samples will support market development in the European Union, the United States, Japan, Southeast Asia, China and Australia.
FeedKind protein is produced via a continuous fermentation process of a natural microorganism, using the world’s only commercially-validated gas fermentation process. The Teesside plant has met its design parameters, including key commercial metrics such as yield and productivity. The facility has successfully maintained a continuous fermentation for eight weeks, and has produced over four metric tons of commercially representative FeedKind protein to date.
Calysta put state-of-the-art manufacturing and quality assurance processes in place resulting from more than 10 years of research and development on FeedKind protein. The Teesside facility is a scale-down from a reactor demonstrated to produce at a rate of 10,000 metric tons per year.
