FEEDING AND POWERING THE WORLD
By 2050, we need sustainable solutions to feed & power 10 billion people, because our current practices are depleting our resources and will not scale to meet the challenge. In fact, an area the size of South America and Africa has been cleared for crops and livestock. Kiverdi's solution begins by recycling carbon dioxide. The goal is to supplement our existing agriculture processes with an innovative and complementary new type of "crop" using a special class of chemoautotrophic microbes. We call them nature's Super-Charged Carbon Recyclers. Not only do they consume carbon dioxide, but they produce oils and proteins that can be used to produce the goods we use and consume everyday.
