Project: Nitricity—Renewable on-site nitrogen fertilizer
Bio: Jay Schwalbe received his B.S. in chemical engineering from Cornell University and, fueled by a desire for bigger mountains and more science, moved west for a Ph.D. at Stanford. There, he joined the Cargnello Lab to study nitrogen fixation technologies. He and Nitricity co-founder Joshua McEnaney have been collaborating on related projects for the past several years and are now focused on bringing the best nitrogen tech to market.
