Jan 2020 – Video: Jim Laird (3F BIO) speaks about Plenitude

During the 14th Plant-Based Foods Summit 2019 in Lille (France),  Jim Laird, co-founder and CEO of 3F BIO, presented Plenitude EU project, first-of-its-kind zero-waste biorefinery project to produce proteins for food from feedstocks that  received €17m funding from the Bio Based Industries Joint Undertaking under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme. 

The project addresses the protein challenge by integrating two established processes into a flagship, large-scale, first-of-its-kind, biorefinery producing bioethanol and sustainable food protein. The process takes a proportion of the sustainable cereal crops that feed the biorefinery to create a feedstock for the fermentation process that produces ABUNDA® mycoprotein.
