Every so often we find innovators creating fantastically elegant solutions to equally fantastically huge problems. In this episode we take a journey into the ocean to discover a remedy for what is a distinctly terrestrial problem: the greenhouse gasses produced by dairy and beef cows.
Scientist and entrepreneur Alexia has isolated a strain of seaweed which reduces the methane output from cows (burps, not farts, FYI) by over 90% by adding just 0.2% of their seaweed extract to the cow's feed. Turns out, what we needed all along was a surf and turf mindset.
She and her team are building the operational skillset needed to harvest this seaweed, which as you'll hear is tricky in its own right (warning: many strained metaphors ahead) because it's lifecycle is akin to a kaleidoscope and you need to catch it at just the right moment in order to unlock it's de-gasifying properties. Tune in as we venture to Hawaii to learn from Alexia the secrets of seaweed cultivation, developing a supply chain in the states, getting farmers to embrace the future, and turning cows from systemic threat to sustainable food source.
