CO2 Sequestration by Methane-Eating Bacteria - Free Brown Bag Webinar
Methane-oxidizing bacteria (methanotrophs) are a well-characterized and significant global sink for methane. Less appreciated is their capacity to assimilate CO2, yet both capabilities have significant implications for greenhouse gas models and biotechnology. By modifying their environments, these bacteria produce co-polymers, such as polyhydroxybutyrate-co-hydroxyvalerate (PHBV), a biodegradable, nontoxic biocompatible plastic.Register Today!
Spring Boot Camp Moves to the West Coast!Our 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 EngineerOur Spring Boot Camp will bring these same perspectives and insights to the West Coast. Check out the details here or register here.
