The Accelerate for Impact Platform is featuring Dr. Barry Goldman of Pluton Biosciences in its next Venture-Out Event on July 7, 2022: Technological Innovation for Soil Carbon Sequestration: A Conversation with Pluton Bio.
Venture-Out Events are a series of interactive webinars to encourage learning and collaboration across the innovation ecosystem, by giving science-based agri-food tech startups a platform to share their journey from science to action. The event will showcase Pluton Biosciences’ scaling journey and innovations in carbon sequestration and will feature an interactive discussion moderated by ICARDA/CGIAR climatologist and soil carbon sequestration expert Ajit Govind.
Pluton uses its Micromining Innovation Engine to create novel microbes with numerous
applications in carbon sequestration, agriculture, biomaterials and bioremediation. The company is currently collaborating with Bayer AG to develop a soil carbon sequestration product, a microbe-based carbon-capture soil amendment for growers that is sprayed at planting and harvest.
This event promises to be a crucial forum for highlighting the value and potential of innovations in soil carbon sequestration, and for bridging science and venture perspectives on how to strengthen efforts.
“Scientific innovation and collaboration are the backbone of Pluton’s work,” Goldman says. “To fully realize the promise of using novel microbes to sequester carbon and fix nitrogen to improve soil health we need to think creatively—communicating and collaborating across different scientific and entrepreneurial perspectives is a way to foster that.”
At Pluton Biosciences, we are making discovery of novel microbes not only possible, but also commercially viable. Our revolutionary Micromining Innovation Engine, a tool like no other, empowers the Pluton Biosciences team to discover novel microbes in months, not years, using a fraction of the staff employed by other laboratories.
Pluton quickly and inexpensively taps into the diverse world of bacteria, fungi, amoebae, and viruses, to discover and develop next-generation products to address challenges to the climate, agriculture, biomaterials, and bioremediation sectors.
