To acquire more products without adding more reactants, you would want to remove the products, such that the forward reaction is favored and more products will be made.
Dr. Lavelle was talking about Le Chatelier's Principle when he posed these types of questions during lecture. Since the system will try to balance itself and keep itself at low energy, if you remove the product then the forward reaction will be favored. Leftover reactants are not efficient, so in the fertilizer factories, for example, they would vacuum out the product, ammonia.
