Kiverdi Turns CO2 Into Oils, Proteins, and Other Bio-Based Products
Kiverdi, an environmental tech company based in California, uses NASA-inspired technologies to recapture carbon dioxide and transform it into a product that can be used to create natural oils, complete proteins, and other bio-based products.
According to the company, the innovative technology uses microorganisms to turn CO2 into raw materials that can be used in everyday products, including food ingredients, personal care items, clothing, and industrial goods. Not only this, but Kiverdi’s technology uses 2,000 times less water and 10,000 times less land than the traditional agricultural processes used to produce the same materials.
Overall, Kiverdi aims to reduce the levels of CO2 in the atmosphere while also ushering in a new era of sustainable food production; one that relies on “air-based protein” and nutrients.
