The energy to fight climate change.
About our company
Peatland Technologies LLC was founded in 2020 by Melissa Floyd. We are a certified woman- and minority-owned business enterprise in the state of Maryland.
Fight the impending climate crisis while simultaneously meeting ever-increasing human energy demands sustainably. This will be done by tapping the planet’s most underutilized resource: microbes.
The company aims to start work in boreal peatlands in the Atlantic periphery but plans to expand to tropical peatlands in countries such as Indonesia, Congo and the Amazon rain forest.
Melissa Floyd is the founder and chief science and technology officer of Peatland Technologies LLC. She’s a microbiologist and environmental scientist with a love of Russian Literature.
Working together for a better future.
