The technology that made Sweden’s first protein factory a reality goes global – through a joint venture.

Librixer, the company behind the liberation technology that recently made GroPro’s plant-based protein factory in Sweden a reality, now aims broader with a global ambition.

Together with the investment and real estate company Backahill, the main stakeholder in GroPro and the Foodcluster in Bjuv, Librixer forms a joint venture named GroPro Solutions AB – enabling a dry, fast and energy efficient protein manufacturing process without chemicals and zero emission for new markets. GroPro Solutions will be an international system integrator providing process solutions based on Librixer’s concept and technology.

“We are glad to announce that we can now offer complete integration of the Librixer technology to the food industry worldwide, and contribute to more sustainable food production on a much larger scale. GroPro’s factory is a good proof that our solution can make a real difference and redefine sustainability in a way you haven´t seen before. Now it’s time to enable this technology for others” says Jonas Ekwall, CEO at Librixer.

The Librixer technology is a revolutionary dry, non-chemical comminution process that disassembles objects to liberate and extract the raw materials that it’s made of.  In GroPro´s factory, Librixer’s technology is used to peel of the soft hull, and in a later step also liberates the protein and starch from the peas.

“We are proud to be co-founders of GroPro Solutions. Our ambition is to be a long-term partner in sustainable projects that create healthier food with profitability and strong growth potential. Librixer is a great example of technology that can enable that, a solution that can make a huge impact for the better on many levels and in different contexts” says Lennart Mauritzson, CEO & President at Backahill

The focus for the new company will be to offer process solutions for protein extraction from legumes on the global market. However, the potential and plans for Librixer goes beyond the food Industry. Imagine that you can use the same technology to reuse your own excess production material, liberate cotton fibers from clothes, recycle glass fibers from worn out wind turbines or boat hulls, and many other applications.
