What are people saying about Precision Fermentation?

If livestock production is replaced by (Precision Fermentation) technology, it creates what could be the last major opportunity to prevent Earth systems collapse, namely ecological restoration on a massive scale. By rewilding the vast tracts now occupied by livestock (by far the greatest of all human land uses) or by the crops used to feed them – as well as the seas being trawled or gill-netted to destruction – and restoring forests, wetlands, savannahs, wild grasslands, mangroves, reefs and sea floors, we could both stop the sixth great extinction and draw down much of the carbon we have released into the atmosphere.

Fermentation has been used for generations to make various beverages and food such as beer and bread, and is all about using the power of nature (and yeast) to create delicious and sustainable food. We are now harnessing the same power of fermentation used to produce alcohol and sourdough, to produce the foundations of our food system: Proteins.

Precision fermentation of whey protein consumes up to 97% less greenhouse gas emissions, 99% less blue water consumption and 60% less non-renewable energy use, compared to traditional dairy milk. 

Like with solar panels and batteries that are disrupting the energy industry, Precision Fermentation and Controlled Environment Agriculture (CEA) may be the equivalent means that disrupt the infrastructure of cows and industrial-scale agriculture.
