Bacteria turn CO2 into valuable chemicals.
Lanzatech partnered with researchers led by the Northwestern University to further optimize their “super-bacterium”.🧑🔬
This bacterium can convert waste gases into usable chemicals like acetone or isopropanol and can reduce greenhouse gas emissions by up to 160% compared to conventional processes.
“Someday everything we use in our daily lives will be made from recycled carbon, mimicking nature where there is no such thing as waste.” – Dr. Jennifer Holmgren, CEO Lanzatech
We are looking forward to many more green solutions to tackle climate change!
