Manure Tech: Progress and Solutions | October 24th 4 PM CT

Waste, fertilizer, feces. Manure is one substance that is available all over the world in mass quantities. But it’s also one that, to-date, has not yet been fully leveraged. A number of different innovators are working to change that, developing new manure-based technologies that use what are today waste products to do everything from create sustainable energy, to provide clean water, to provide nutrients to crops. Please join us for a panel discussion about the latest innovations in manure technology, the companies currently working on solutions, and the opportunities we’re seeing to help this market develop at 4pm CT on October 24th. The panel will feature representatives from Cargill, the Environmental Protection Agency, YieldLab and iSelect.
