• Developing countries
• 1.3 billion tonnes of waste
• Might get worse

Meat Production (million
tonnes)
2013 2050
Greenhouse Gases
•Responsible for 14.5% → More
than transport
Animal Suffering
•Horrible breeding conditions
Waste of Resources
•1kg beef = 7kg to 10kg plants
Water Pollution
•Animal waste, antibiotics,
hormones, etc.
•1kg beef = 15 000L of water
Health
•Makes it easy to spread
diseases such as avian flu
Potential Solutions
Produce
more ?
• Not
sustainable
Find
alternatives
5
Potential Solutions: Alternatives
Lab-grown meat
Insects
Soylent
6
Potential Solutions: Lab-grown meat
• In 2013, first lab-grown burger patty
• From a cow’s muscle cells
• Meat but not produced in a cow
• Supermarket : in 20 years
Information
• Involves no animal suffering
• Very environment-friendly: 96% less greenhouse gases, no
agriculture, no deforestation, less antibiotics and much more.
Advantages
• Price : first patty costed $300,000
• Good news : $11 a burger
Problem
7
Potential Solutions: Insects
• 2 billion already eat them
• Numerous : ¾ of animal species
Information
• Same amount or even more protein
• Less resources : much easier to breed
Advantages
• Western culture
• Solution : change mentality or presentation ?
Problem
8
Potential Solutions: Soylent
• Rob Rhinehart : American software engineer
• Crowdfunding : 3 million dollar
• Contains all required nutrients ?
Information
• Easy to produce and to prepare
• Low environmental impact
• Cheap : about $12 a day
• Time saver
Advantages
• Sceptical people
• Lack of variety
Problem
9
Debate
 Which alternative would you choose ? Why ?
 Which one would you invest in ? Why ?
 Do you think Western people are willing to change
their habits ?
 Do you think food companies really do something to
lower their impact on the environment ?
