The Byproduct Initiative seeks to outline the areas of cellular agriculture that are neglected regarding animal byproducts.
If successful commercialization of cellular agriculture is to take place, the byproducts of animal agriculture must also be produced. Different parts of animals not used for the primary purpose of raising it (the byproducts) are used in various sectors, like leather for example. Therefore, products like Zoa and cell-ag gelatin offer a solution to these secondary purposes of rearing animals and ensure a post-animal bioeconomy can be achieved. However, cellular agriculture solutions for byproducts like cow eyes used for scientific use in classrooms, organs for transplants, and pig ears used as treats for pets do not currently exist and serve as valuable market explorations for future companies.
Members of the Byproduct Initiative work to create the path to replacing all animal products with cellular agriculture analogs.
Current/Working projects include...
Outlining all animal byproducts and the prospective cellular agriculture substitutions that new/existing companies can fulfill
Creating a roadmap towards the development of all substitutions allowing for large-scale commercialization
Cellular Agriculture is a global phenomenon that needs people from all walks of life to be involved if it is going to be successful -- so WE NEED YOU!
