#GLFLive with Pasi Vainikka – growing food from thin air

Pasi Vainikka, Co-founder and CEO of Solar Foods, a company that uses renewable energy and carbon dioxide to create a nutrient and protein-filled powder that is similar to wheat and bland tasting called “Solein”. It is a new protein that the company claims is “100 times more climate friendly than any animal or plant-based alternative and 10 times more efficient than soy production in terms of land use.” Vainikka believes humanity is on the verge of a new food revolution and Solar Foods is already ahead of the game and will speak to award-winning journalist Natasha Elkington on 5 June about the future of Food Production.
