Dr. William Moomaw

Advisory board member
Professor Emeritus of International Environmental Policy at the Fletcher School, Tufts University, and Distinguished Visiting Scientist at Woodwell Climate Research Center. He founded the Center for International Environment and Resource Policy at the Fletcher School and co-founded the Global Development and Environment Institute at Tufts University. He graduated from Williams College and holds a Ph.D. in physical chemistry from MIT.

A Lead Author of five Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change reports including the 2007 report that shared the Nobel Peace Prize. As a Science Fellow, he worked in the U.S. Senate on energy and forestry issues and on legislation that eliminated American use of CFCs in spray cans to protect the ozone layer. He was the first director of the climate program at the World Resources Institute in 1988, and in 2019 was elected an American Association for the Advancement of Science Fellow. He is the past chair of the boards of Woodwell Climate Research Center, and The Climate Group North America., and has served on multiple additional boards including the University Corporation for Atmospheric Research.

Icelandic Energy to Food technology

At VAXA, we believe that technology is the foundation of a credible, long-term solution that not only meets the nutritional requirements of people but can successfully address the current planetary climate emergency by halting the destruction of our natural environment caused by the production of beef meat.

We aim to leverage our access to clean energy, innovation, passion for people and the planet, and expert knowledge to support us in our mission to inspire collective and effective action worldwide by encouraging people to choose Icelandic Ultra Spirulina to meet their nutritional needs equivalent to beef meat while using carbon financing to fund initiatives that help marginalized peoples also achieve food security.


VAXA is dedicated to enabling sustainable nutrition choices by offering people an alternate natural superfood nutritionally equivalent to beef, which is produced through a patented first-of-its-kind, scalable technology that converts clean energy to a micro-algae known as Icelandic Ultra Spirulina (IUS) which is used as an ingredient in food fortification programs across the globe.


VAXA drives impactful emission reductions worldwide, by offering a holistic approach to food security that empowers companies committed to meeting their net-zero targets to choose a partner with the same values, ensuring co-benefits that positively impact the planet and people who depend on it.
