Green Matters teamed up with WeWork for the month of April to celebrate Earth Day 2018 with a #workgreen challenge and Q&A series spotlighting sustainability-minded WeWork member companies. In this installment, we’re sitting down with Dr. Lisa Dyson, CEO of Kiverdi.
Company name: Kiverdi
What they do: Kiverdi uses natural microbes to turn carbon dioxide and other gases into oils, nutrients and bio-based products, from food and personal care items to clothing and biofuels.
Location: Hayward, CA
Why Kiverdi is so valuable: Our global food system is responsible for up to a third of all human-caused greenhouse gas emissions. With the human population expected to swell to around 10 million by 2050, it’s more important than ever that we figure out a way to live sustainably. Part of that requires us to rethink our entire food-production model. That’s where Kiverdi comes in.
GREEN MATTERS: In a nutshell, what is your company’s green contribution to the world?
Kiverdi technology uses all natural microbes (we call them nature's Super Charged Carbon Recyclers) to transform CO2 and other gases into high-valued oils, nutrients and bio-based products. The materials we produce can be used in a wide range of sustainable sourced products, both for consumer and industrial applications. By recycling carbon dioxide, we are bridging the gap between sustainability and profitability, enabling a future of abundance.
