In his recent podcast with Garrett Weinzierl, Dr. Geoffrey Smith of New Mexico State University reviewed two patented biotechnologies, one a plant-based green pesticide and a yeast-based polymer called H2 Elastomer™.  The elastomeric polymer is composed of a network of uniquely thin fibers that trap and retain hydrogen gas. Markets in the oil and gas industry and overall in the hydrogen economy are being explored for applications of H2 Elastomer as a coating to protect steel from the corrosive effects of hydrogen gas and for use in hydrogen storage and transport.  Both products represent the essence of biotech, that is pushing biology into technology and letting nature work.
