Whey2Value – Technology for the production of vitamin B12 from whey
Acies Bio has developed an innovative technology for the production of cellular biomass with a high content of vitamin B12 which uses waste whey as the raw material. The process was demonstrated at a pilot scale of 10m3. Based on this technology, a joint undertaking was founded with a foreign partner where the design of a production plant is currently underway. Vitamin B12-enriched biomass can be used directly as a feed additive in agriculture.
