Fish food from the forest


Is it possible to make fish food from forest products?

SP’s contribution

SP Processum has produced single-cell protein at the SP Biorefinery Demo Plant that can be used in fish food. Micro-organisms are fed with waste from the forest industry … a smart way of converting the forest into food!


Successful feed trials have been conducted by a project partner in Iceland. Fish that were fed with fish meal made using protein from the forest grew just as well or better than fish that were fed with a reference fish meal. SP Processum won the EARTO Innovation Prize 2014 for this project.


Processum AB started in 2003 and has developed into a leading biorefinery initiative, both on national and international level.Read more...
