Jeremy Weir, Microbiologist for the Kyanos Farm, is from Toledo, OH. He attended the University of Toledo and achieved a bachelor’s degree in Chemical and Environmental Engineering. His chemical engineering background was geared toward oil refining and process engineering, but in that experience he saw all of the processes which were described and designed by practical industry were nothing more than mimicked processes from the smallest functional unit of life, the cell. That insight drove him to learn more and more about biology and biochemistry in his education and ultimately landed him in a research lab with a primary purpose of reducing the costs of growing, harvesting, and processing algae to produce biofuels. From there he worked in the algae industry with companies all over the globe with a wide range of responsibilities from consulting on projects to full scale implementation of one piece to a whole range of equipment geared toward producing a product from algae. When the opportunity arose to help a company take on the challenges of providing an effective solution for the increasing demand of Raw Living Spirulina, he simply couldn’t let it pass.
