Using microbes to convert elements of air into a sustainable protein product

By 2050 we are expected to reach 10 billion people, resulting in a 70% increase in the demand for food production. Current food production accounts for over 20% of greenhouse gases, more than all of transportation combined, and uses over 37% of the planet’s land mass – the amount of land equivalent to the size of both Africa and South America! We developed Air Protein as a way to make meat without requiring the taxing inputs and added arable land necessary to feed more people.
