A scientist’s opinion : Interview with Jero Ahola about microbial protein
Interview with Jero Ahola, professor at the Department of Electrical Engineering at LUT. Is this project called Neo Carbon Food a huge step in the scientific research by Finnish scientists? Jero Ahola: Our project began in 2014 when we started thinking about electrifying the whole energy system. We’ve already known that we can produce hydrogen and ...
Is microbial protein the answer to the quest for ‘meatless meat’?
Can you imagine producing agri-products without having to use land? Finnish scientists and researchers have produced protein, manufactured by microbes, using electricity, water, nutrients and air.
