Arbiom today announced that it is welcoming two new partners to the SYLFEED Consortium, a project that brings together key industry and research players to convert wood residues to sustainable protein-rich ingredients for Aquaculture. BioProcess Pilot Facility B.V. (BPF), based in Delft, The Netherlands, and Bio Base Europe Pilot Plant (BBEU), based in Ghent, Belgium, will lend their expertise in process scale-up to the consortium as it seeks to demonstrate the successful scale-up of Arbiom technology and the creation of an effective wood-to-food value chain. View full Press Release.

“Arbiom’s wood-to-food technology has shown enormous promise in its potential to help address the looming global food shortage,” said Peter Flippo, BPF Business Development Manager. “We are excited to join the partners in the SYLFEED consortium to provide our expertise in scaling-up wood fractionation processes and contribute to the demonstration of the wood-to-food value chain,” Flippo said.

“BBEU understands the challenges associated with scale-up of innovative bioconversion technologies,” said Wim Soetaert, CEO, BBEU. “Joining the SYLFEED project presents a strong opportunity to lend our expertise and years of experience to Arbiom’s efforts as the company moves its mission of commercializing its technology,” Soetaert said.

The addition of BPF and BBEU brings the number of SYLFEED partners to 10 as the project seeks to provide a sustainable solution to reduce the European protein gap and enable new economic development opportunities for biomass-rich regions.
