Nanocellulose, Impossible Foods and other transformational tech
March 29, 2017
Hosted by Jim Lane
Companies like American Process are reinventing materials science with the commercialization of nanocellulose, a fiber stronger than steel yet flexible, light and affordable. At the same time, technologists at companies like Impossible Foods, Modern Meadow, and Perfect Day are showing us that they can synthetically generate meat without the cow, leather without the cow and milk without the cow. These and more transformative technologies go under the microscope as we are joined by Nuu Digest writer Gary Scoggins and by American Process' lead nanocellulose inventor, Kim Nelson.
