White Paper: Revolutionizing a Sustainable, Nutritional Protein Source for Future Health of People and the Planet

The pandemic has added fuel to an already growing hunger crisis, and it has become explicitly clear that our food system must evolve to meet global challenges in a way that serves the greater health of both people and the planet.

Arbiom’s latest White Paper explores how innovation in protein production holds the potential to create long-term solutions to sustainably feed future generations in the face of resource shortages, biodiversity loss, and climate change.

To combat these challenges, innovators in the space are looking for renewable, readily available resources that have not historically been a part of the food supply chain. Wood represents one of the most promising sources of renewable, sustainable food and materials for future generations, especially in light of expanding forest lands, sustainable forest management practices, and the forest products industry’s integrated supply chain.

Arbiom is commercializing technology to transform wood waste and residues into a sustainable, natural, and nutritional protein ingredient: SylPro®.

The Global Food Supply Challenge: Why Wood Could Hold the Key

By White Papers

In the search for new resources to help bridge the protein supply-demand gap, much of the focus has centered on a two-sided question. How to increase protein production while also addressing sustainability challenges? How can we produce more food using less resources and reducing agriculture’s impact on the environment?

Technology is poised to play an increasingly important role in meeting protein supply-demand needs as market requirements continue to evolve and expand. New single-cell-based protein solutions offer promising ingredients for feed formulators, farmers and, ultimately, end consumers, bridging the gap between agronomy and industry and opening up the door to a new era of renewable resources that can be utilized to meet market demands head-on.

Ricardo Ekmay, PhD, Arbiom’s Animal Nutrition Director, explores the promising potential of single-cell protein as one solution to the global challenge of safely and sustainably feeding the future.
