Turning CO2 to stone and growing carbon-negative food in Iceland

Author and futurist Tom Goodwin goes to Iceland to discover how the country’s unique natural environment and cutting-edge technologies like LEDs, machine learning, and artificial intelligence (AI) are inspiring eco-innovations that tackle climate change and the global food crisis.

Tom discovers Vaxa Farms, a pesticide-free vertical farm that uses 100 percent renewable energy to grow leafy veg in the cold Icelandic winter. Can this be a greener solution for feeding our growing population?

He also visits Vaxa Impact Nutrition, an ‘Energy-to-Feed’ (E2F) platform growing micro-algae, to see why this aquatic organism is hailed as the most sustainable crop in the world.
