Modern Meadow Aims to Combine 3-D Printing and Tissue Engineering to Meet the World's Demand for Beef and Leather
NBC News, Jennifer Wang, May 26, 2013
Here's a crazy idea: Combine 3-D printing and tissue engineering to "print" animal products and tackle some of the planet's biggest problems. Animal farming, after all, accounts for about half of all human-caused greenhouse gases, taking place on one-third of the available, non-frozen land on Earth. All to feed people's appetites for 300 million tons of meat a year.
Enter Gabor and Andras Forgacs, father-and-son founders of Modern Meadow , a company they started in 2011 that may very well be the model for the farm of the future.
