In another interview from Feed Protein Vision 2018, Margareth Øverland, professor in nutrition at the Norwegian University of Life Sciences (NMBU) questioned whether we should be using human food to feed animals in the future, in light of climatic changes and limited availability of agricultural land. She told us that microbial feed resources, such as those produced using natural gas, have an advantage in that they can be produced independently of arable land and climate, and they relieve pressure on food resources for direct human food production.
