At Trelys we use biotechnology to convert hydrogen and carbon dioxide into products that leverage the world’s agricultural resources.
The demand for protein is expected to far exceed population growth as the world’s poorest citizens increase their wealth. The anticipated “protein gap” must be addressed in every way possible and one way is to increase the use of supplemental amino acids in animal feed. Our primary focus at Trelys is to improve the cost and availability of feed amino acids.
Plant protein contains less lysine, threonine and methionine than animal protein. Supplementing vegetable protein with these amino acids improves the efficiency of protein feeds, enabling the more effective utilization of scarce land and water resources.
Hydrogen can come from a variety of sources but today almost all hydrogen is produced by reforming or gasification of carbon containing feedstocks such as natural gas, coal or biomass. Most hydrogen is utilized in the refining of crude oil or in the production of ammonia. Trelys intends to partner with industrial hydrogen producers to benefit from the large scale at which they operate. As the “hydrogen economy” emerges, Trelys is positioned to utilize hydrogen from any source
Our technology is based on the bioconversion of hydrogen and carbon dioxide using methanogenic archaea

While Trelys is currently focusing on feed amino acids, this technology provides an avenue to a wide variety of products.
