Green methanol as feedstock in large-scale bioproductions of circular compounds

FeedstocksUnited (FSU) is developing new technology concepts enabling sustainable bioproduction of Single Cell Protein (SCP), chemicals and fuels without relying either on fossil-based feedstocks or on sugars.

The FSU-technologies are aerobic fermentations processes as based on either paraformaldehyde or trioxane, both obtained from renewable methanol. These are polymeric formaldehyde compounds, that unlike monomeric formaldehyde, are not toxic to microbes. Paraformaldehyde or trioxane are produced from methanol via formaldehyde in standard chemical processes.

Our patented technologies will enable utilization of either of these polymeric compounds in existing industrial fermentations as if they were sugars.
