View challenge: C-7160-0101 - Nitrogen fixation for use as a nutrient in crops
Seeking novel materials, biological and technological innovations relating to nitrogen fixation for use as a nutrient in crops.

We are interested in

1. Modified natural mineral or synthetic organo-metallic complexes for the photo-fixation of nitrogen from air at ambient temperature and pressure
2. A biomimetic system for the fixation of nitrogen from air in ambient temperature and pressure that can be added to crops either through the roots or through foliar application
3. Biological solutions such as foliage dwelling bacteria with enhanced nitrogen fixation and delivery capabilities

Our criteria:-

1. N2 production rate of 10-9 10-8 mole*sec-1*cm-2 electrode surface of ammonia or a substantial part of the plant's N need
2. Required concentration in a fertigation system should be 20-200ppm in irrigation systems with flow rates of 2-8m3/Hour/Hectar
3. Cost- total usage cost should be lower than using urea
4. Compliance with current and anticipated regulations
5. Ease of manufacturing

As a technology incubator, we are looking only for innovative technologies that may be further developed and commercialized
