New nutritional and sustainable

source of protein

for aquaculture.

SYLFEED is an international and multidisciplinary 4-year project aiming at scaling-up Arbiom’s Technology to convert wood residues into a protein rich feed ingredient comprised of SCP (Single Cell Protein) in order to address the European protein gap. SYLFEED will demonstrate Arbiom’s technology at larger scale and prepare for industrial scale-up.

SYLFEED enables to produce a nutritional and sustainable source of protein from wood residues for the fish feed market. It unlocks value from underexploited forest and wood residues by bringing a competitive and high-quality source of protein to fish feed manufacturers.

Coordinated by Arbiom, owner of the technology, the project gathers a consortium of ten partners from six different countries encompassing the entire value chain, from biomass sourcing through fish feed manufacturing.
