Unibio is a biotech company that owns and develops a patented fermentation technology to produce protein from methane. Our technology decouples protein production from agriculture and fishing, reducing the environmental and climate impact of meat production significantly. The technology is unique and has the potential to reduce the footprint of protein production as well as meeting an accelerating global demand for protein products for both feed and food.

We run a demonstration plant in Kalundborg, and the first full-size production plant is in operation in by an international licensee. Unibio is owned by the founding Busch-Larsen family, a group of private investors and Mitsubishi Corporation. We are 52 employees in Roskilde and Kalundborg.

We expect to contract and deliver several new plants in the next years. The engineering team will be pivotal for the successful project execution. For the team in Roskilde we are looking for a new:
