Challenges in adoption of new microbial protein production
Before investing in a new production line for a novel process, thorough investigation is required to de-risk the project. However, the information in this field is obscured:
process data is siloed and held tightly by each company;
scaled-up data does not exist for the novel process;
no standardized way to compare various processes;
Techno-economic analysis (TEA) can help business leaders assess the potential of the novel production process. With the literature and industry data that we have collected, we help businesses design the process, quantify the mass and energy flow, and eventually assess costs and market potential of the novel product.
