Daniel Schou Jensen, Project Director in R&D Engineering & Automation, received the nomination on behalf of R&D. Now, the jury will assess the nominee projects, and the winner will be announced on October 1st, the opening day of hi fair, at MCH Messecenter Herning.

The project is about developing a plant that can extract protein from organic grass. It will be a climate-friendly alternative to the soy protein. The first plant is being developed at Ausumgaard, R&D’s partner, and will also contribute to the production of organic biogas by using the by-products from the manufacturing of grass protein.
