Proven Technology

Our carbon recycling solution helps companies who want to reduce their carbon footprint without negatively impacting their operational costs. Our proprietary fermentation platform converts carbon dioxide and hydrogen into high-value ingredients.

The UK’s first-ever scalable route to the sustainable generation of protein capturing the carbon dioxide from bio-energy generation.

REACT-FIRST encompasses all key stakeholders in the Proton™ production value chain  

Drax

The UK’s largest single site renewable electricity generator and pioneer of Bioenergy with Carbon Capture Usage and Storage (BECCUS). Drax announced its world-leading ambition to be carbon negative by 2030 and has been working with Deep Branch to explore the feasibility of using its carbon dioxide emissions to make proteins for sustainable animal feed products.

Deep Branch

Experts in recycling industrial CO₂ into cost-competitive protein for high-value, sustainable animal feed. The work of REACT-FIRST centres around the use of microbes to convert CO₂ directly from industrial emissions into Proton™ produced by Deep Branch. Using feed industry-defined data and advanced robotics, this project aims to further improve the strong nutritional profile of Proton™ and sustainably disrupt the UK's aquaculture and poultry industries.
