From Lab to Fork

Whether made from genetically engineered yeast or through in vitro processes, these next-generation animal replacement products are manufactured in resource-intensive factories. The products are often made with multiple processed ingredients, including gums, flavors, colors and other additives. Some products also include novel, genetically engineered ingredients like the “heme” secreted from genetically engineered yeast, which gives the Impossible Burger its “blood.”

Synbio Algae Issue Brief

The hype and investment around algae biofuels has not resulted in commercially viable biofuels. Worse yet, they distract attention and resources from more promising, less risky and proven solutions to climate and energy concerns, such as efficiency, solar and wind energy, relocalization, expanded public transportation, dietary shifts and regenerative agriculture.

Synbio Algae Report

The question remains: Is Big Oil’s investment in algae biofuels based on confidence in a credible alternative to fossil fuels, or is it nothing more than a public relations stunt?
