OCAP (a subsidiary of Linde) has been supplying CO2 - from industry in the Port of Rotterdam - to greenhouses in the Rotterdam area. Deep Branch built the unit in a container so that it can also be used outside the laboratory. In the unit, the company can test its gas fermentation technology with different CO2- and hydrogen resources.
In the longer term, Deep Branch wants to establish a commercial plant for its process. The company sees the Port of Rotterdam as a potential site. Meanwhile, at Brightlands Chemelot Campus, the startup continues to work on scaling up its technology.
