In this episode of Energy Bytes, we discuss leveraging microbes and genetic engineering to enable industrial biotechnology solutions for carbon neutrality. Our guest Liz Dennett, CTO at Cemvita Factory, shares insights on bio-prospecting for microbes, adaptive lab evolution to domesticate microbes, and quantifying microbial DNA/proteins. We learn how Cemvita Factory is developing innovative bio-solutions across 3 business lines – Gold Hydrogen, Eco Co2, and BioMining. The discussion covers pragmatic tech stacks, data modeling, scaling bioreactors from labs to industrial facilities, and integrating sensor data and genomes in the cloud. Liz provides advice for transitioning into energy tech and emphasizes the need to just take action.
