C02 Emissions to Be Made into Animal Feed

Technology Inceptions

In a major initiative that may reduce carbon emissions and create value added inputs for animal food industry, a bioenergy plant in Yorkshire, England is working on methods to generate Proton,a single-cell protein (SCP) optimised for animal nutrition. It can replace conventional livestock feed, such as fishmeal and soybeans. 

Energy company Drax, Deep Branch, a CO2 recycling firm and Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI) are involved in this pilot plant set up at Drax Power Station. The investigation is one of the several innovative bioenergy with carbon capture and storage (BECCS) projects at the renewable electricity plant. The company expects a proportion of the captured CO₂ could be converted into proteins, creating a closed-loop carbon cycle.

The International Energy Agency has singled out BECCS as the most mature of carbon removal technologies. Once the BECCS is scaled up, Drax could deliver millions of tonnes of negative emissions annually − a significant proportion of the negative emissions the UK needs to reach its 2050 net zero goal.
