Overview

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is partnering with pork and dairy producers, USDA, and environmental and scientific experts to host a competition to find technologies that can recycle nutrients from livestock waste and create valuable products.

Every year, livestock producers manage over a billion tons of animal manure containing valuable nutrients—nitrogen and phosphorus—that plants need to grow. A major use of manure is as a renewable fertilizer, but it should be used properly to minimize water pollution and build healthy soils. In addition, there is a tremendous opportunity to generate environmental and economic benefits from manure by-products, but further innovation is needed to develop more effective and affordable technologies that can extract nutrients and create products that farmers can use, transport, or sell more easily to where nutrients are in demand.

The mission of the Nutrient Recycling Challenge is to help find technologies that are a win-win for the environment, farmers, and the economy.

Farmers across America are asking, “How can I manage nutrients on my farm better and more affordably?”

How will it work?

There are four phases planned for this innovation challenge, in which innovators will be invited to turn their concepts into designs, and eventually, into working technologies to be piloted on livestock farms:

Phase I: Concept Papers [closed] – November 16, 2015 – January 15, 2016

Phase II: Technology Designs – October – March 2016 (see announcement below, details TBA September 2016)

Phase III: Prototypes/Proof of Concept 

Phase IV: Finalists’ demonstration pilots on farms 

Phase II Program

Phase II of the Nutrient Recycling Challenge will be a non-competitive incubation program to support innovators as they develop Technology Designs based on the Concept Papers submitted in Phase I. Phase II will begin in October 2016 and only be open to the 34 teams selected in Phase I. EPA and its Partners will support the innovators with informational webinars and workshops, individualized feedback, and other resources to maximize their ability to develop designs for effective and affordable technologies. Innovators will be required to submit their designs and finalize their teams by March 2017 for entry into Phase III of the challenge, which is expected to be a prize competition for building Prototypes.

Details and schedule for Phase II will be announced in September 2016.

Results of Phase I

EPA received 75 concept papers from around the world in Phase I, and selected 34 submissions to continue on to Phase II of the challenge. On March 30, 2016, EPA announced the winners and awarded a total of $30,000 in cash prizes to the top 10 submissions (four “Winners” and six “Honorable Mentions”). The 34 selected submissions were also invited to the Nutrient Recycling Challenge DC Summit in Washington, DC on March 30-31, 2016, during which the winners received their awards at a ceremony at the White House Eisenhower Executive Office Building. The summit provided a forum for innovators to meet Partners, experts, and other innovators, as well as learn about resources to develop their ideas into real-life technologies. EPA seeks to create a “brain trust” that can design nutrient recovery technologies that can achieve what both farmers and the environment need.

    Ecolocap has a, unique, inexpensive, small-footprint, Bio-Fermentation Digester is the best technology for high-speed fermentation for organic waste that include: 1) Organic MSW a. Fruits b. Vegetables c. Yard Waste d. All types of fats and meats e. Wood (must be in small chips) 2) All types of animal waste a. Herbivore b. Carnivore c. Human There are presently 41 installations on factory pig and chicken farms in Asia. The Bio-Fermentation method will process organic wastes with, moisture content up to 75%, utilizing patented, aerobic fermentation technology and a unique blend of beneficial microbes. The Bio-Fermentation method converts organic waste (depending on input) to organic fertilizer or chicken, pig or fish food in 7 days, not months. The extremely fast fermentation bacillus process is further enhanced by computer controlled temperature settings maintained at 60 o ~ 70 O C with stirring action and continuous oxygen injection. The Bio-Fermentation aerobic high-speed fermenter is a vertical sealed structure with a very small footprint. All process are aerobic and no methane is produced. Thermal oxidation and other processes eliminate odors. There is zero leachate. Organic matter is inputted either through a batch or continuous process. The inputs are stirred into the fermenter inoculated with our special aerobic bacteria. Fresh sources of oxygen keep the fermentation environment oxygen rich. The stirring, oxygen source and input (food scraps, yard waste, various sludge’s, manure sludge, animal by-products) is an aerobic, oxidation process, the heat produced by the process evaporates most of the water which reduces the volume leaving the byproduct which can be an organic fertilizer or organic chicken, pig or fish food.

      Thank you for posting! One of the "Desired Characteristics" in the criteria for this challenge is compatibility for use with digestate. Some of the Partners (and potential investors) in this challenge are particularly interested in this. It is important for innovators to hear about what the market needs and wants!
