Mixotrophic Fermentation - MixoFerm

White Dog Labs continues to invent and develop strategies that harness the ability of special microorganisms to simultaneously consume carbohydrates and gases to efficiently produce metabolites at improved yields. The scientific name for our approach is Anaerobic, Non-Photosynthetic Mixotrophy or just a Mixotrophic Fermentation. The detailed theory and technical opportunities can be found in several of our recent publications.

Watch the MixoFerm video - note there is no gas production, even though biomass and growth are the same

Importantly, this is a platform technology capable of producing a wide-range of MixoFerm™ products from direct petrochemical replacements (such as acetone and isopropanol) to novel bio-advantaged molecules to animal feed products (for example, ProTyton™). What sets our MixoFerm™ products apart from similar bio-based products is the enhanced carbon yields of our products and the corresponding lower carbon intensity scores of them.
