SylPlant

Build the future of sustainable protein production in Europe

The SylPlant project aims at building and operating Arbiom’s first plant in France to produce protein-rich ingredients by yeast fermentation for the food and feed markets. This flagship plant will reach an annual production of 10.000 tons of ingredients per year at full capacity to meet the growing demand for natural, high-quality, and sustainable food products in the market. 

The SylPlant project aims to build and operate Arbiom’s plant to produce at large scale protein-rich ingredients with one of the lowest environmental impacts. Made from fermentation of diverse carbon sources including lignocellulosic material and agricultural side streams, Arbiom’s protein ingredients cover both human food (Yusto®) and feed (SylPro®) applications.

The main objectives are:

  • BUILD and operate Arbiom’s first industrial plant in France to reach 10.000 tons of annual production at full capacity.

  • OFFER a European, safe, local and sustainable protein supply.

  • DEVELOP the next generation of foods with Yusto® such as cheese & meat analogs, and specialized nutrition products.

  • VALIDATE the use of SylPro® in feed applications.

  • GATHER consumer insights on SylPro® and Yusto®.
