Ground-breaking carbon recycling project
Led by Deep Branch, a carbon recycling biotechnology company. This project will obtain critical data about cost, digestibility, nutritional quality and carbon footprint of Proton™, a novel single-cell protein (SCP) produced by Deep Branch from CO₂ directly from industrial emissions.
Take action for a brighter future for all.

REACT-FIRST is the UK’s first-ever scalable route to the sustainable generation of protein capturing the carbon dioxide from bio-energy generation.
REACT-FIRST is supported by grant funding from Innovate UK, the UK's Innovation Agency.
Currently, animal feed protein sources are imported from overseas, making the UK dependent on complicated and fragile supply chains.
To address this problem, REACT-FIRST’s solution uses the technology developed by Deep Branch. This project encompasses all key stakeholders in the Proton™ production value chain.
REACT-FIRST represents an end-to-end value-chain-wide consortium of industry and academic partners, with the collective aim to transform the UK’s food production system.
