            The characterization of metal-loving bacteria with an affinity for rare earth elements by Cornell University is a promising development. It opens the door to a more eco-friendly method, called biosorption, that can potentially replace harsh chemical processing, reducing environmental impact. This innovation represents a significant step towards sustainable practices and contributes to the broader effort to combat climate change. #GreenTech #Innovation #ClimateChange #Sustainability
