Livestock Water Recycling, an Alberta-based technology provider in agriculture nutrient recovery, is one of 11 ag tech companies selected to present on-stage at the AGRI Tech Venture Forum happening next week in Toronto.
The forum gathers ag tech leaders and the tech commercialization community to accelerate the adoption of agriculture technologies.
“The future of agriculture will use high tech devices to allow healthier and more plentiful food to be produced more sustainably and ethically than ever before,” said Karen Schuett, VP of development and co-founder of Livestock Water Recycling. “Consumers are demanding transparency and sustainability and large food companies are answering the call by increasing their focus on finding technologies like ours that can provide this for them” she added.
LWR will use their time on stage to highlight their platform and the ongoing product development that has positioned them as the market leader in nutrient recovery. LWR is a global manufacturer of manure treatment systems that provide hog, dairy, and anaerobic digester operations with patented manure treatment technology to recycle clean water and fertilizer nutrients from livestock manure for reuse at the farm. LWR has systems operating throughout Canada and the U.S.
“We are excited to be a part of the forum and to have this opportunity to present our technology platform. We are also looking forward to sharing the exciting new tech developments that we have been working on at our Innovation Centre.”
“New ventures and high growth companies require more than just financial capital to succeed in the dynamic global market. Innovation, partnerships, ingenuity, and experience are just a few of the ingredients for an ag tech success story,” said Aryn Guthrie, project manager for the Venture Forum.
“The collective knowledge, network, and insights of the people attending the forum, and their willingness to share that with us, will be a game changer” adds Schuett.
