A Sustainable Way to Feed the World

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), there will be 10 billion people living on Earth by the year 2050. With resources already growing scarce, we need to find a way to feed all these people without destroying the world in the process.

Alternative fats are part of the solution.

Power to Food

We create sustainable alternatives to traditional oil and fat products. They’re created through ”Power-to-X” technology that combines water and carbon dioxide together with electricity into fatty acids and triglycerids. The process bipasses traditional agricultural production which decreases the use of fresh water, nitrogen, phosphorous, and the need for larger areas of arable land.

With the Green-On process we can replicate animal or plant based products down to the very last molecule, or create completely new compounds, all in the lab. Making everything vegan, everything cruelty-free, everything sustainable. 

The Power-to-Food Process

Step 1: Power

Add sustainably sourced electricity, a minimum amount of water, and carbon dioxide from the air or even from third-party industrial emissions.


Step 2: Process

Chemically syntesize molecules like fatty acids or triglycerides. Tweak the process depending on end-product needs to create different oil and fat substitutes.


Step 3: Product

Use E-fat as a sustainable substitute ingredient in things like cheese, chocolate, shortening, cooking oil, ice-cream, pastries, sausages, and more.

Make Food Anywhere

When you’re trying to feed the world, arable land is a problem. Finding locations where the soil is right, the climate is right, and bugs don’t kill the crops, are all problems. Green-On’s poduction process is a solution. We can make food anywhere; in the arctic, in the desert, maybe someday even on Mars.

Plastic from Waste

By-products from industrial processes are often seen as something negative. But not always. The by-products from our power-to-food process include building blocks for plastic polymers that can be used as fossil free material for the plastic industry.

Waste is a matter of perspective, after all.

8 Reasons for Green-On Solutions

Why Green-On’s alternative fats and oils? What are the real world benefits to using the power-to-food process to create hard fat for food, sweets and other products? Here are a few key highlights:

  • No arable land
  • No fertilizers
  • No pesticides
  • No deforestation
  • Provide food security
  • Use less fresh water
  • Avoid climate-related issues
  • Carbon neutral (going on carbon negative!)
