Unibio is an SME operating in the biotechnology sector with core competences within fermentation technologies. Unibio International was incorporated in 2014, and its 100% owned subsidiary company was incorporated in 2001.
The global headquarters are located at 2 Royal College Street, Camden, London NW1 0NH, the administrative headquarters are located at Niels Bohrs Allé 17, DK-5230 Odense M, and the R&D headquarters are situated at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU), Søltofts Plads, Building 227, DK-2800 Kgs. Lyngby.
The company owns the rights to a unique fermentation technology – the U-Loop technology – which has been developed in cooperation with DTU and is the result of more than 30 years of research and development activities.
The concept underlying Unibio’s U-Loop technology is simple: natural gas (methane) can be converted into a highly concentrated protein product, UniProtein®, which can be used as a direct supplement in feed for animals. It can substitute fishmeal, a traditional feed component and an increasingly scarce resource.
The ambition of Unibio is to become the world market leader within protein production based on methanotrophic bacteria, partly by own production and partly by licensing the production technology to international investors wishing to establish large-scale production plants of UniProtein® using the surplus gas from oil production. Unibio is also committed to the continuous development of the U-Loop technology to improve productivity.
