WE RECYCLE Carbon


LINKING SUSTAINABILITY & PROFITABILITY

At Kiverdi, we are commercializing a technology that uses a special class of chemoautotrophic microbes, we call them nature's Super Charged Carbon Recyclers, to transform carbon dioxide and other gases into protein, high-value oils, and bio-based products, which can be used in a variety of consumer and industrial applications. By recycling carbon dioxide, we are bridging the gap between sustainability and profitability, enabling a future of abundance.

TO MAKE PROTEIN


MicroFeed is a Protein-Rich Meal

By 2050, our population is expected to increase to 10 billion people and the global demand for protein is expected to almost double. Fish provided more than 2.9 billion people with almost 20% of their animal protein, in 2010, but unfortunately our current aquaculture practices aren't sustainable, as farmed fish are being fed wild-caught fish. Kiverdi's MicroFeed can provide solutions. MicroFeed is a protein-rich meal, with 50% greater protein content than soy meal, that can replace fishmeal in aquaculture feed applications.

HIGH-VALUE OILS

HIGH-VALUE OILS


Alternatives to Plant-Based Oils

Between 2000 and 2012, rainforests equaling the size of Ireland were cleared, in Indonesia, to make room for palm plantations. Why? Palm oil is now used in over 50% of consumer products, including shampoos, detergents, cosmetics, and candles. The demand for palm oil to manufacture these and other products grew from 2.5 million tons in 1972 to 58.7 million tons in 2012. Using palm oil is cheap and easy, but competitive alternatives that are sustainable are urgently needed. What about the higher-value derivatives of palm oil? Or other plant-based oils, such as macadamia oil? Kiverdi's technology recycles carbon dioxide into oils with properties similar to plant-based oils and derivatives, creating sustainable alternatives. This includes palm oil (PALM+) but it also includes higher-value oils such as macadamia oil.

& BIO-BASED PRODUCTS


High Value Compounds for Everyday Products 

The Kiverdi technology can target a range of bio-based compounds. As an example, limonene is a compound found in citrus fruits, which is commonly used as a biodegradable, non-toxic cleaning formulation ingredient or as a solvent. Additionally, you'll find limonene predominantly listed as an additive in flavors, fragrances, and cleaning products. However, limonene has a history of price volatility due to the fact that the orange supply is vulnerable to weather and other natural issues. Kiverdi's technology can produce a limonene alternative, which isn't reliant on weather conditions or geographic location, and can be manufactured in a much more cost effective way.
