TEA of cultivated meat. Future projections of different scenarios
16 November 2021
To reach this goal, a number of innovations in the production process and a fall of the prices of the main inputs are needed. [...] In Chapter 3 we describe the results of the TEA in the form of cost of good-models for CM production in different scenarios for costs of input and the efficiency of the production process. [...] The goal of the study is to gain insight into the costs of CM production, into the contribution of different processes and inputs to costs (a breakdown of the costs) and the impact of a number of potential innovations in the production process and price reduction of production inputs. [...] For this project, and given the rough nature of the assessment of investment costs, it is sufficient to show the impact of a difference in payback time as an example of how different investment requirements impact the cost of CM production. [...] — Low: Relatively efficient use of medium and low prices for individual ingredients, representing the upper bound of obtained data Annex B provides a detailed overview of the composition and ingredient prices in the scenarios and the total amount of ingredients needed for the production of 1 kg of CM in these scenarios.
