Part 2: DLG.prototype.club x GEA Challenge

Paving the way to zero-freshwater for the dairy industry

Production and manufacturing processes require the use of significant natural resources such as freshwater.  GEA’s own zero-freshwater target for 2030 and achieving climate targets and ever-increasing regulations around freshwater consumption and waste disposal require new approaches.  The goal is: Minimizing freshwater consumption in the dairy industry.

The Challenge

GEA is seeking innovative solutions that provide dairy plants with a comprehensive understanding of their water footprint. The concepts should highlight areas of water stress and waste in a holistic view of the entire cycle. Solutions should not only minimize freshwater usage but also contribute to sustainable water management practices.

Award Ceremony

Follow-up contract develop the concept/prototype into an MVP together with GEA in 100 days. 

“The winning startup will not only receive recognition as a pioneer in dairy sustainability but will also have the opportunity for collaboration and implementation of their solution in real-world dairy plants. Additionally, there may be financial incentives and mentorship opportunities to support the startup’s growth and success in the dairy industry.”
