Cultivated Meat Consortium's Water Recycling Triumph: A Sustainable Leap Forward with Tnuva at the Helm

In its relentless pursuit of redefining the future of sustainable food production, the Cultivated Meat Consortium has achieved a monumental milestone with water recycling rates surpassing 90%. This triumph not only significantly mitigates the environmental impact of cultivated meat production but also presents a cost-effective solution for manufacturers. A noteworthy aspect of this achievement is the leadership of Tnuva, Israel's largest alternative protein food product provider as well as the Consortium Chair. By harnessing the power of water recycling technology, the consortium, spearheaded by Tnuva, has paved the way for a more sustainable and economically viable future for the cultivation of meat.

A Sustainable Vision

At the core of the Cultivated Meat Consortium's mission is a commitment to ushering in a new era of sustainable and ethical meat production. Recognizing the environmental challenges posed by traditional agriculture, the consortium has dedicated its efforts to developing innovative solutions that address both ecological concerns and operational efficiency.

The Water Recycling Breakthrough Led by Tnuva

The recent achievement of medium water recycling rates surpassing 90% is a game-changer in the realm of cultivated meat production, and at the forefront of this breakthrough is Tnuva. As Israel's largest alternative protein food product provider, Tnuva has played a pivotal role in developing and implementing water recycling technology within the consortium.

Environmental Impact

 By recycling water at such high rates, Tnuva and the consortium are actively reducing the demand for fresh water resources, alleviating the strain on ecosystems, and contributing to overall water conservation efforts. Tnuva's leadership in this initiative showcases its commitment to sustainability within the alternative protein industry.

Cost-Effective Operations

 Beyond its environmental implications, the high-rate water recycling strategy led by Tnuva has far-reaching effects on operational costs for cultivated meat manufacturers. The ability to recycle medium water at this scale allows manufacturers to optimize their resource utilization, ultimately reducing the costs associated with water procurement and disposal.

Synergy with Concentrated Basal Medium

This milestone aligns seamlessly with the Cultivated Meat Consortium's earlier announcement of providing basal medium in a concentrated form. The concentrated basal medium, combined with the high-rate water recycling achievement led by Tnuva, presents an innovative and cost-effective solution for cultivated meat manufacturers.

On-Site Dilution

Manufacturers can now take advantage of the concentrated basal medium supplied by the consortium and dilute it with recycled water on-site. This decentralized approach not only streamlines the cultivation process but also empowers manufacturers to exercise greater control over resource usage, further contributing to cost reduction and environmental sustainability.

The Road Ahead

As the Cultivated Meat Consortium, with Tnuva at the helm of water recycling technology development, continues to pioneer advancements in cultivated meat technology, the achievement of high water recycling rates stands as a testament to the power of innovation in addressing both environmental and economic challenges. The consortium's commitment to pushing the boundaries of what is possible underscores its role as a catalyst for change in the global food industry.


The Cultivated Meat Consortium's breakthrough in achieving water recycling rates exceeding 90%, with Tnuva leading the charge, is a momentous step forward in the journey toward sustainable and responsible meat production. By concurrently reducing the environmental impact and offering cost-effective solutions to manufacturers, Tnuva and the consortium are shaping a future where cultivated meat is not only ethical but also economically viable on a large scale. As Tnuva's leadership continues to inspire and lead, the prospect of a more sustainable global food system becomes increasingly tangible. The achievement of high-water recycling rates is not just a triumph for the consortium but a triumph to the Israeli Cultivated Meat Eco-System.
