National Science Foundation (NSF) Fertilizer


WDI is supporting commercialization of a new technology developed by researchers at the University of Michigan to produce ammonia for fertilizer in a small-scale, distributed way using renewable energy. This work is part of a grant that U-M has received from the National Science Foundation Emerging Frontiers in Research and Innovation program. WDI is conducting an analysis of potential markets for this technology, identifying top priority markets in LMICs, and conducting a deeper analysis of top markets including market sizing, customer segmentation, analysis of competitive alternatives, and a preliminary market entry strategy.
