Agriculture, food, and related industries contributed $1.053 TRILLION to the U.S. GDP in 2017. Andrew Lefkowitz is responsible for driving the overall strategic direction at Locus Fermentation Solutions and is an innovator in the Ag field – using resources that are generating results that wouldn’t be possible to do with traditional solutions.
Locus Fermentation Solutions of Solon, a firm dedicated to providing environmentally sensitive biotechnological products for agriculture and the oil and gas industries, has embarked on development of a product to reduce the amount of methane gas in the atmosphere.
Locus is a great example of a company that makes sustainable production easier for farmers. Locus is about optimizing profitability and improving sustainability. Optimizing profitability is accomplished since their products enrich the soil and root microbiome, resulting in improved vigor, and increased yields. Improving sustainability is accomplished through their products, substantially reducing carbon footprints by increasing soil carbon utilization and minimizing greenhouse gas emissions.
I’ve been introduced last month to Locus Bio-Energy Solutions™ as I interviewed CEO Jonathan Rogers about their bio-based surfactants (mostly glycolipids) for use in the oil and gas market. A more comprehensive article about my interview has just been published this week on Tecnon OrbiChem’s September Biomaterials newsletter.
