LanzaTech, based in Illinois (Skokie), is marketing its proprietary, bacteria-driven fermenting systems as a Carbon Recycling technology that counteracts the global warming effect of industrial greenhouse gas emissions by converting carbon dioxide waste gas into ethanol for fueling aircraft and road vehicles and for manufacturing of plastic.

News media reports of this kind are an everyday thing. I haven't done any further research but I like the "cut" of this report's "jib", in terms of something that comes across as credible and practical, among the widely varied ideas about helping the planet "keep its cool", against a backdrop of ever more ominous reports about Climate Change and Global Warming.

That's why I decided to use this to satisfy my mid-afternoon craving to go online here with some kind of message or topic.

So, the bacteria eat up all the CO2, all of the trees die and we will be left with nothing but flat beer. Nice going.

Well, I no longer partake of alcohol, and, ..................screw a bunch of trees anyway.
So...is it too early to celebrate?

Don't short change this 'bombshell' 'planet saving' 'life saving' 'economy saving' 'scientific miracle' williegoat. We will be able to also harvest bacteria zhit to make jet fuel. How hard could that be, ?

That would be great if CO² was a driver of global warming weather that changes over time.

There is no shortage of hucksters promising to save the planet with their proprietary technology. I'll leave it at that.

Bonus points to anyone who knows what is the main byproduct of ethanol fermentation.

Probably not the answer you are looking far, but the correct answer is livestock feed..brewer's grain...which in turn, results in cow farts....so ultimately, the byproduct is 'methane'.

Millions of tons of brewers grain are fed to cattle, hogs and chickens every year.

Dry ice.....cause that prevents CO² from being released into the atmosphere......

Sounds similar to when we smart humans release a species of animal or plant in a new area to try and kill off another one that is a pest to us.

And a similar concept in the fiction book I have on the shelf...

Ill Wind
by Kevin J. Anderson & Doug Beason

It's the largest oil spill in history: a crashed supertanker in San Francisco Bay.
Desperate to avert environmental damage―and a PR disaster―the multinational
oil company releases an untested "designer microbe" to break up the spill.

An "oil-eating" microbe, designed to consume anything made of petrocarbons:
oil, gasoline, synthetic fabrics, rubber, and of course plastic.

What the company doesn't realize is that their microbe propagates through the air.


Hilarious commercial on FB...
I like the "exploding" Corvette.
I assume his underwear is cotton, otherwise...
