Sillman, J.; et al. (2019): Bacterial protein for food and feed generated via renewable energy and direct air capture of CO2: Can it reduce land and water use?

Sillman, Jani; Nygren, Lauri; Kahiluoto, Helena; Ruuskanen, Vesa; Tamminen, Anu; Bajamundi, Cyril et al. (2019): Bacterial protein for food and feed generated via renewable energy and direct air capture of CO2: Can it reduce land and water use? In Global Food Security 22, pp. 25–32. DOI: 10.1016/j.gfs.2019.09.007.

"This quantitative literature review conservatively estimated the direct land and water use of bacterial protein production relying on secondary data for the components of the technology and for the reference protein sources. A several times higher potential protein yield per land area can be achieved by this technology with approximately one-tenth of the water use compared to that required for soybean production."
