The Earthshot Series – HutanBio
A disruptive biofuel… but without the disruption. Today, more than ever before, we need safe, clean, sustainable, and renewable manufacturing for a better, shared, green future. Lee and Gwilym speak with John Archer, Founder and Director at HutanBio, and Kathy Lumsden, Director and European Patent Attorney at Slingsby, about innovative fuel replacements that drive regeneration, work in harmony with the surrounding ecosystems, and understand the socio-economic challenges of the region they are grown in.
