NextCycle Michigan: FLOWS Track Launch
The application period for NextCycle Michigan Food, Liquids, and Organic Waste Systems (FLOWS) Innovation Challenge Track opens April 30, 2021. During this webinar, we will dive into the FLOWS Track which seeks teams with projects to transform any aspect of organics recovery – from food recovery and collection to new end markets for finished compost to innovative uses for wood waste. You’ll learn about the challenge track structure, eligibility, timing, and benefits to participating.

Additionally, learn about two projects that are great examples of the types of projects the FLOWS Track can support: Emmet County’s development of a commercial food scrap recycling program through research and pilot testing; and Country Oaks Landscape Supply’s use of a compost aeration and heat recovery (CAHR) system and development of innovative end market uses for compost.

The FLOWS Track is designed for businesses, entrepreneurs, universities, public agencies, tribal communities, or non-profits who have investable project ideas with the potential to transform Michigan’s organics recycling economy. Disadvantaged Business Enterprises (DBE) and cross-sector partnerships are encouraged to participate. Pre-startup, startup, early growth, and mature stage projects will be considered.

NextCycle Michigan is an initiative of the Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy (EGLE).
