Global Brain has invested in Windfall Bio, a leader in Methane Capture & Transformation Solutions

Global Brain has invested in Windfall Bio (Windfall), a leader in methane-capture solutions, through its Norinchukin Innovation Fund L.P. (NCIF), joining Prelude Ventures, Amazon’s Climate Pledge Fund, Incite Ventures, Positive Ventures, B37 Ventures, Breakthrough Energy Ventures, Mayfield and others.

Windfall’s nature-based solution harnesses methane-eating microbes — referred to as mems — that capture methane from any sources while also capturing nitrogen from the air to produce organic fertilizer on customers’ sites. For agriculture and industrial customers, mems create value by improving soil health, increasing regulatory compliance, improving resource efficiency, and generating new revenue streams from the sale of organic fertilizer.

While addressing methane emissions is the most impactful strategy available today to tackle near-term climate change, it has remained a critically underappreciated and underfunded problem for global warming, only recently gaining significant attention in climate discussions. However, methane represents an important resource that can create significant value for customers if they are given the right tools. With the support of its strategic investors, Windfall will empower customers across industries to eliminate harmful methane emissions and create valuable outputs in return.

Global Brain has decided to invest in Windfall, recognizing its leadership position in methane capture and transformation solutions. Windfall’s clients will use their microbial technology to dramatically reduce their methane emissions, produce organic nitrogen fertilizer, and create a more sustainable future. Together with The Norinchukin Bank, Global Brain will assist them entering the Japanese market.
