The company was founded in 2014 and in 2015 it acquired Unibio A/S, the Danish operating company, which was established in 2001.
The company owns a fermentation technology capable of developing a patented single cell protein (SCP), called Uniprotein. The fermenter design utilizes methanotroph bacteria to convert methane into biomass with a high protein content. Uniprotein has been approved in the EU for animal feed and can substitute traditional proteins in all livestock and seafood feed such as fishmeal. In September 2018 Uniprotein was approved for use in organic systems by OF&G, Organic Farmers & Growers.
Unibio is involved in licensing its fermentation technology in foreign countries for commercial purposes and has established its first commercial production in Russia. Unibio runs its R&D and pilot facility at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) and has a demonstration-scale production plant in Kalundborg, Denmark .
