Ever wonder how the world’s population increased six-fold over the past century while the number of people starving dropped? This is in large part due to the Haber-Bosch process, the most important invention you’ve probably never heard of. The Haber-Bosch process allows for human beings to create nitrate fertilizers using nitrogen from the atmosphere and hydrogen gas. It’s a pretty cool trick, but it still requires the use of a lot of energy as well as fossil fuels.
What if we use biotechnology to do same trick but in a more environmentally friendly way? Come on by CRASH Space on Saturday October 8th at 5pm and hear about one such project from Dr. Cory Tobin.
