The low-cost, globally scalable solution for making alternative protein by capturing carbon.
NovoNutrients proprietary microbes grow quickly in a carbonated water solution, using minimal water and no arable land.
In some places, we’ll be paid to take CO2. Hydrogen is becoming greener, cheaper, and more plentiful.
Our bioreactor designs enable optimal protein production for food and feed and are compatible with many undervalued streams of gases.
Our systems will be co-located with large producers of emissions gases, hydrogen, or direct air capture CO2.
We are guided by the principles of ethical behavior, respect for people, safety, and stewardship of our products and the environment.
NovoNutrients' fermentation platform is powered by patent pending microbes and proprietary bioreactors. The organisms transform emissions, along with hydrogen and oxygen, into complete, safe, natural single cell protein ingredients for food and feed.
The result? A new pillar of the food system, decoupled from agriculture and, ultimately, from fossil fuels. NovoNutrients' flexible technology can utilize various mixed emissions gases, making CO2 capture more economical by reducing the cost of concentration.
Highest Quality. Lowest Cost.
NovoNutrients' protein quality is on par with beef, and superior to all plant based alternative proteins at greatly reduced costs. Our production process uses very little water or land, and no pesticides or fertilizer.
Our fermentation-enabled protein product is 73% protein, with all the essential amino acids and little fat or fiber. Trials conducted in the US and Japan have consistently shown high digestibility and palatability scores.

With collaboration and traction across the globe, we're actively expanding our production capability. Worldwide, the cost of hydrogen continues to decline, and NovoNutrients will leverage this trend to produce low-cost protein ingredients for food and feed, as well as high-value specialty additives such as carotenoids. Our first world-scale plant will upcycle almost 200,000 tons of CO2 per year.
NovoNutrients' mission is to solve two problems simultaneously: creating sustainable protein to feed a growing population, and combating climate change through carbon capture and utilization.
NovoNutrients sees global food, carbon, and environmental challenges as extraordinary opportunities .
