The Everglades Foundation is dedicating five years and $10 million to show the world how serious phosphorus water pollution is. The $10 million grand prize, the largest science prize in history to focus on clean water, is expected to attract more than 80 applicants from over 10 countries.
The grand prize will go to the team who develops a cost-effective, scalable technology to remove phosphorus from freshwater bodies. Applicants will be able to submit entries for Stage 1 of the prize competition beginning July 21, 2016. Entries demonstrating the most promising early stage ideas will be eligible for funding totaling $35,000. To learn more about the George Barley Water Prize, visit barleyprize.org
