GlasPort Bio (www.glasportbio.com), has been hailed as a ‘game changer’ by judges, as it recently was awarded the inaugural InterTradeIreland Seedcorn Sustainability/Low Carbon award, along with a €20,000 bursary.
The Low Carbon prize recognises start-ups innovating within the low carbon and green sector. Seedcorn is the island of Ireland’s biggest business competition for innovative new start and early stage businesses, with a record total prize fund of €300,000 this year.
GlasPort Bio develops technology focused on reducing greenhouse gas emissions from agriculture. Through its products – feed additive to prevent belching of methane from livestock and a slurry additive to prevent methane emissions from stored slurry – the company is creating solutions that allow farmers to produce food in a more productive, profitable and sustainable way.
Congratulating GlasPort Bio on the company’s win, InterTradeIreland’s Shane O’Hanlon said: “We are thrilled to reveal the winner of our inaugural Sustainability / Low Carbon prize which gives special recognition to firms that are innovating within the growing low carbon sector… GlasPort Bio is an excellent example of a company developing game-changing solutions for the food and farming industry, it is truly remarkable work and I would like to congratulate the company on their win in the first ever Sustainability / Low Carbon category… ”
We are, after all, the greatest problem solvers to have ever existed on Earth. If working apart, we are a force powerful enough to destabilize our planet. Surely working together, we are powerful enough to save it.
