CO2 Sequestration by Methane-Eating Bacteria - Free Brown Bag Webinar

Methane-oxidizing bacteria (methanotrophs) are a well-characterized and significant global sink for methane.

By modifying their environments, these bacteria produce co-polymers, such as polyhydroxybutyrate-co-hydroxyvalerate (PHBV), a biodegradable, nontoxic biocompatible plastic.

Spring Boot Camp Moves to the West Coast!

map of CaliforniaOur Spring Boot Camp March 26-28 moves to the Bay Area this year, offering those on the West Coast the opportunity to delve into sustainability assessment and the mechanics for getting the C-Suite to pay attention to sustainability efforts. In the words of one of our Fall Boot Camp attendees:

"The Fall Boot Camp that included Life Cycle Assessment (LCA), Sustainable Return of Investment (S-ROI), and Sustainability Integration classes offered through EarthShift Global provided unique perspective and insight into these burgeoning fields. I was pleasantly surprised by such an engaging and adaptive training which was applied to each participant's discipline through in-class examples. I recommend this training for anyone who wants to improve their understanding of LCA, S-ROI and Sustainability Integration programs which can be immediately applied to environmental and economical-friendly initiatives within their own company."

--- Kent Langerlan, Environmental Engineer

Our Spring Boot Camp will bring these same perspectives and insights to the West Coast. Check out the details here or register here
