Construction is underway on the first commercial scale FeedKind® protein manufacturing plant in Memphis, Tennessee through NouriTech™, a venture formed in 2016 through investments from Cargill, Calysta and several third party investors. The facility will be home to the world’s largest gas fermentation operation, and will produce the FeedKind protein family of safe, sustainable nutritional ingredients for fish, livestock and pets.
The plant is expected to produce up to 200,000 metric tons annually when completed and operating at full capacity. Ground was broken on the 37-acre site in April 2017, and the first phase of construction is expected to be completed in 2018, with the plant online in 2019. The second construction phase is expected to be completed in 2020.
