Federal Government recognizes LWR with financial award to further advance technology
June 8, 2017 by Livestock Water Recycling
June 8, 2016, Calgary, Alta. – Livestock Water Recycling is one of seven Calgary based technology companies who will receive over $2.5 million in federal government support to help bring their technology to the global marketplace.
The LWR System is a disruptive technology that is used by dairy and hog producers to recover nutrients and recycle water from livestock manure.
There are many benefits to managing manure in this way; these include cleaner sand for bedding, increased crop yields due to strategic nutrient application, and a much easier path to expansion should a producer so choose.
This funding will be used to further develop a new module for RO cleaning that will reduce consumable costs and increase flow capacity. Not only will this advance manure treatment, but could potentially have applications across a variety of industries beyond livestock production.
David Lametti, Parliamentary Secretary to the Honourable Navdeep Bains, Minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development and Minister responsible for Western Economic Diversification Canada, made the funding announcement last week on the Minister’s behalf during a visit to Innovate Calgary.
The funding supports western-based companies that develop cutting-edge technology, create jobs, and spur the economy. The Government’s Innovation Agenda aims to make Canada a global centre for innovation – one that drives economic growth by creating better jobs, opportunities, and living standards for all Canadians.
