Protein produced with electricity and carbon dioxide

A batch of single-cell protein has been produced by using electricity and carbon dioxide in a joint study by the Lappeenranta University of Technology (LUT) and VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland. Protein produced in this way can be further developed for use as food and animal feed. The method releases food production from restrictions related to the environment. The protein can be produced anywhere renewable energy, such as solar energy, is available.

"In practice, all the raw materials are available from the air. In the future, the technology can be transported to, for instance, deserts and other areas facing famine. One possible alternative is a home reactor, a type of domestic appliance that the consumer can use to produce the needed protein," explains Juha-Pekka Pitkänen, Principal Scientist at VTT.

"In the long term, protein created with electricity is meant to be used in cooking and products as it is. The mixture is very nutritious, with more than 50 per cent protein and 25 percent carbohydrates. The rest is fats and nucleic acids. The consistency of the final product can be modified by changing the organisms used in the production," Pitkänen explains.

blink.gif Woah... Sounds too good to be true, like a Star Trek replicator.
It probably has the taste and texture of lutefisk. chuckle.gif

I produce protein with friction and lubricants.

Wow, what an impressive team and they aren't stopping at converting elements from the air to only food...it looks like they can make sustainable energy from air elements too.

Quote:SOLETAIR is the world’s first pilot plant capable of producing hydrocarbons from the air by using solar power as the energy source.

The products can replace fossil resources in fuels,chemicals, materials and even medicine. The solution makes it possible to reach a carbon neutral future. The raw materials, carbon dioxide and water, are separated from the air. Hydrogen is generated from water by means of electrolysis. Energy consumed in the electrolysis is supplied by a solar power plant. Finally, CO2 and hydrogen are combined to form hydrocarbons in a synthesis reactor operating at high pressure and temperature.

Once on an airplane to Helsinki there was a magazine we read that said they were "engineering a carbon free future." damned.gif

Well, that statement is not really true, as we are pulling out hydrocarbons from the atmosphere - perhaps a better statement would be "engineering a fossil free future"(?)

"engineering a fossil FUEL free future" I meant.

No backtracking now! I want a future free from fossils!
