Feed & Food
Avecom focusess on upgrading nutrients from low value side streams into high value feed- and foodstuff. For this, we use our patented process called "ProMic", with which we have created a unique link between industry and food, perfectly fitting into the circular economy. ProMic is grouped in three major units: ProMic Premium - Avecom's own high quality, enriched feed- and foodstuff, ValProMic - a microbial protein source from recovered nutrients from diluted streams and Power to Protein - microbial protein from gaseous streams. We are continuously looking to improve these products in order to meet market demands even better. Interested? Please feel free to contact us!
By 2040 we will have to feed a world population of 9 billion
Conventional protein sources such as soy and fishmeal have a very large geographical and ecological footprint
Protein prices are increasing because of increasing demand and limited supply
The feed and food industry is scouting for sustainable and high quality alternatives
ProMic - Protein from Microbes - is Avecom's answer to these problems. It is a patented process, upgrading undervalued streams to microbial protein resulting in a high quality and affordable feed & foodstuff
ValProMic is a collaboration between Avecom, Clarebout Potatoes and Agristo, aiming to be the first Belgian supplier of a microbial protein production process, which can be retrofitted in existing feed- and food companies. The process converts diluted, hygienic process streams which are otherwise lost, into microbial protein. The endproduct can be used as basic protein source in feed.
POWER TO PROTEIN
Avecom fully believes that Microbial Protein will be the future, and with Power to Protein this concept is even taken a step further. No longer using organics as feed for the process, Power to Protein produces protein starting from gasses. This way, the most basic building blocs (CO2, NH3, ...) can be converted to a high value product, opening a new range of possibilities in which the ProMic process can be implemented.
This project is a collaboration between different parties, both crossing industrial sectors and geographical borders.
