Igor Vassilev competes in Slush
The reseachers will pitch their research ideas on Friday and Igor Vassilev will present his idea of how by electrifying bacteria can carbon dioxide be turned into food.
Igor Vassilev wants to convert carbon dioxide into food using microbial electrochemical synthesis. This biotechnology allows to power slow-growing microorganisms with renewable electricity from solar energy. These supercharged microbes have enough energy to transform the C02 into vinegar, which is then eaten by fast-growing bacteria allowing rapid biomass formation. The whole process happens in a bioreactor and the result is environmental-friendly, safe and nutritious food.
