Pollution of industrial chemicals into the environment is one of the greatest threats to the world and all the species that inhabit it. Every year in just the US, 2.2 billion pounds of pesticides are released in farms, which gets into our food and water supply. Coal and heavy metal mining generate 400,000 tons of caustic pollution that get dumped into rivers and landfills. The health and ecological impacts are devastating!

A gleam of hope for solving these problems may come from nature itself. Come hear from startups that are harnessing biotechnology to clean our world.

Speakers:

Fatma Kaplan, CEO of Pheronym

Pheronym is creating an all natural highly effective insect control for agriculture. By leveraging pheromone spray they double nematode’s effectiveness as an organic insecticide to rival chemicals, without any of the negative health or environmental impact.

Kagiso Ubane, CEO of UBA Biologix

UBA cleans industrial wastewater from coal, gold, and platinum mines with an organic bioremediation system. Their first system is operating on a large coal mine in South Africa.
