History

Unibio was founded in 2001 by Ebbe Busch Larsen with the primary aim of continuing previous work conducted on converting natural gas into animal protein via fermentation technologies.

The history of Unibio is shown in the timeline below.

Unibio was founded, with Ebbe Busch Larsen in charge of coordinating the research and development activities.
A Nozzle U-Loop fermentor was put into operation at DTU.
The second part of the Nozzle U-Loop project at DTU was concluded, with results exceeding expectations.
The third part of the Nozzle U-Loop project at DTU was started.
The project was successfully finished with the U-Loop technology documenting a productivity level of 4kg/m3/h.
Unibio received an order confirmation for a pilot factory in Trinidad & Tobago from a client-consortium formed of the National Energy Corporation of Trinidad & Tobago, Evolving Tecknologies and Enterprise Technology Development Ltd. (e-TecK) and the University of Trinidad & Tobago (UTT).
The construction of the pilot plant in Trinidad & Tobago began.
The Site Acceptance Test at the T&T pilot plant was concluded.
The pre-commissioning of the T&T pilot plant was started.
The first fermentation was successfully concluded.
Nov - Launch of EFPro² project (Environmentally Friendly Protein Production) with grant support by Innovation Fund Denmark.
Opening Ceremony - Unibio U-Loop pilot plant at DTU.
May - Unibio signs the first license agreement with the intent to upscale and commercialize the Unibio U-Loop technology in Russia.

Nov - HRH Prince Joachim of Denmark officially opened Unibio´s first commercial U-Loop
Unibio is selected as one of the partners in a new project funded by Innovation Fund Denmark called Provide.
Sep - Uniprotein® & Uniprotein+® have been approved for use as an ingredient in organic systems for animal feed in the United Kingdom and EU by Organic Farmers & Growers (OF&G).

Sep - Unibio and its partner and licensee Protelux are about to take a great leap forward producing alternative proteins from bacteria using methane as feedstock. During July Protelux completed the construction of the plant located in Russia and the parties are currently testing the plant and expect to commission it by late 2018.

Oct - Unibio partners up with European companies and municipalities to create biobased products out of urban waste streams. The VALUEWASTE project is financially supported by the EU under Horizon 2020

Nov - Unibio enters into an agreement with PETRONAS Chemicals Group Berhad with the intent to conduct product trials of Uniprotein® for the Southeast Asian market.
March - Unibio invited to be part of the SDG Accelerator program for SME's

March - Unibio is participating in a project that will contribute to a more sustainable food production. The project is supported by the Ministry of Environment and Food of Denmark, MUDP fund (Eco-innovation).

July - Unibio is the project leader of a new project funded by GUDP, the Green Development and Demonstration Programme, a funding program under the Danish Ministry for Food, Fisheries, Equal Opportunities and Nordic Cooperation.

Aug - Unibio signs MOU with SAGIA, the General Investment Authority of Saudi Arabia, initiating a project to produce proteins from methane gas.
