Tulane University To Award $1 Million For New Solution To Global Dead Zones



taylor.tulane.edu

NEW ORLEANS – Tomorrow, Dec. 14, Tulane University will award the $1 million grand prize in the Tulane Nitrogen Reduction Challenge – an international competition to find a significant, scalable solution to reduce nitrogen runoff from farming, a primary culprit behind massive annual “dead zones” in waters throughout the world.

Tulane opened the challenge in 2014 to participants across the globe to identify and nurture the most innovative and adaptable technologies to fight hypoxia. Phyllis Taylor, president of the Patrick F. Taylor Foundation, funded the challenge. Challenge finalists – Adapt-N of Ithaca, New York and Cropsmith of Farmer City, Illinois – spent the growing season testing their ideas on 25 acres of the Hardwick Planting Company’s 20,000-acre farm in northeast Louisiana along the Mississippi River.

The award ceremony will take place at 2 p.m. at the Tulane River and Coastal Center, 1370 Port of New Orleans Place.
