  • SOLEIN® BIOPROCESS

    Conventional food production wastes water at unsustainable and unreasonable levels. We wanted to fix that. Our bioprocess produces natural protein from CO2 and electricity. It's 100 times more climate-friendly than meat and 10 times better than plants. Unlike conventional protein production, it takes just a fraction of water to produce 1kg of Solein® – the purest protein in the world. The bioprocess of Solein may not be traditional. But it is natural, with a fully natural fermentation process. And the best part? It won’t run out.

Designed by nature
  • DESIGNED BY NATURE

  • Our bioprocess unlocks the full power of natural protein production. We've collected microbes from pure Finnish nature and grown them in a fermenter that is almost identical to ones used in breweries and wineries. Instead of causing CO2 emissions, our bioprocess captures carbon dioxide and uses renewable electricity throughout its production process.

Discovered by science
  • DISCOVERED BY SCIENCE

  • Although natural, Solein® is disconnected from agriculture: its production doesn’t require arable land or irrigation and isn’t limited by climate conditions. The technology is based on research by VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland and LUT University. In 2018, Solar Foods started co-operation with the ESA Business Incubation Centre (ESABIC) in Finland by developing food production for a Mars mission. The goal of this cooperation is to develop a food production concept as part of the astronauts’ life-support system.

  • SOLEIN® CAN BE CARBON NEGATIVE

    Land that is released from agriculture and allowed to return to its natural state removes carbon from the atmosphere. The production of Solein requires only one-tenth of the land area compared to agriculture. On a lifecycle emission basis, Solein production is carbon negative.

Designed by nature
  • A WORLD OF SHARED RESPONSIBILITIES

    For centuries, conventional food production has been based on the increasing use of agricultural land. Meat and dairy are the world’s largest user of land resources, with grazing land and cropland dedicated to the production of feed representing almost 80% of all agricultural land. Solar Foods tackles several Sustainable Development Goals set by the United Nations to act as a blueprint for a better future for all. And we wish to challenge other companies to align their business to support the achievement of SDGs, too.
