By using clean electricity, water, carbon dioxide, and microbes, this machine can synthesize non-animal protein.
By using clean electricity, water, carbon dioxide, and microbes, this machine can synthesize non-animal protein.

Synthetic protein can be produced with the use of clean energy, water, carbon dioxide, and microbes. In this bioreactor with hydrogen-oxidizing bacteria, electrolysis takes place by forming a powder made up of 50 percent protein and one-fourth of carbohydrates. The protein created through electricity works as a food replacement, or even as a high-protein animal feed. Additionally, the texture of the resulting composite can also be altered depending on the microbes used in production.
