About

 

White Dog Labs, Inc. (WDL) is a biotechnology company developing technologies to address global challenges including food sustainability and climate change. We invented a novel class of fermentation technologies and a new synthetic biology platform to address global challenges including food sustainability and climate change. Our technology improves the efficiency of fermentation processes by 50-100%, improving the economics of bio-products, from fuels and chemicals to protein rich feeds. This improves the economics of bio-products, from fuels and chemicals to protein rich feeds.

We achieve this through our MixoFerm technology platform that enables FlexFeedstock fermentation. Each employs proprietary microorganisms and fermentation processes to feed and convert carbohydrates (e.g., sugar) and gas (e.g., CO2, hydrogen and CO) into nearly any desired biochemical. What’s more, with the right combination of sugar and gas, Zero-CO2-Fermentation™ can be achieved, characterized by no CO2 emissions from the fermentation, which promises rich environmental advantages.

MixoFerm and FlexFeedstock can achieve sugar-to-protein, chemical and fuel mass yields that are 50–100% higher than the theoretical maximums of conventional microorganisms and fermentation processes. Moreover, they allow flexibility in the type and ratio of feedstocks employed, which leverages the advantages of each to mitigate the other’s challenges.

WDL customers will benefit in these ways: 1) lower feedstock cost, which is commonly the largest operating cost consideration whether it is protein, fuel or chemical production; 2) improved life-cycle- analysis by maximizing the mass conversion of biobased feedstocks; and 3) easier compliance with current and future regulations on carbon intensity of products. 

From its headquarters in New Castle, Delaware, WDL is scaling technologies to ton per day demonstration for sustainable protein, biochemical and fuel production
