ARPA-E goes back to the ROOTS in $30M bid to transform carbon sequestration

ARPA-E goes back to the ROOTS in $30M bid to transform carbon sequestration

April 13, 2016 |

In Washington, ARPA-E announced that it will invest $30 million in new awards for ROOTS — (Rhizosphere Observations Optimizing Terrestrial Sequestration), aimed at developing new integrated technologies to sequester added carbon in the soil. More roots, goes the theory, equals more carbon stored in the soil, healthier plants that can better withstand drought, and better […]

Meet Me at the World’s Flare; methane gas flaring, and the role of biobased tech

November 18, 2013 |

As stranded natural gas is poured into the atmosphere by the millions of tons each year — biologists are coming to the rescue with a new class of technologies. They’re designed to convert more “old methane” to higher value fuels and chemicals, and make more “new methane” via high-tech digesters that turn waste into liquid […]
