Manure Innovation Challenge
The Manure Challenge will see eight international start-ups, each with a solution to capture value from manure-based nutrients, pitch their innovative technologies to an audience of high profile investors and industry leaders. A judging panel will select a winner, to be announced during the afternoon of the Summit. The special pre-summit Breakfast Briefing is open to all delegates attending the summit on Monday March 16 from 07.30am.
The goal of the Manure Challenge is to create an expedited pathway to circular farm economies through the creation of new revenue streams from waste and by-products (water, manure and nutrients). The Challenge started in partnership with the WWF, Dairy Farmers of America and Newtrient, and is sponsored by Cargill, The Maschhoffs and WeWork Food Labs.
