Viriditas is a small, focused, discussion-based workshop geared towards coalescing a practical plan for supporting human life on Mars. It will bring together innovators and visionaries across industry, academia, and government who are interested in applying synthetic biology to space exploration.
In her talk, Dr. Tara Karimi presents Cemvita's CO2 Utilization approach that merges chemical engineering and synthetic biology. This would allow for optimizing the CO2 conversion reaction beyond what's possible with either of these methods independently.
Cemvita Factory Inc. is currently commercializing this technology for in-situ bio-manufacturing of food and human life support resources, enabling deep space human exploration and settlement. On earth, this carbon-negative technology enables efficient CO2 Utilization for production of industrial chemicals and polymers.
