Lorenzo Conti Wins October's Shell LiveWIRE Smarter Future Award!

Mon, 03 December 2018

Lorenzo Conti won October's Shell LiveWIRE Smarter Future Award for his business, Crover.

Business Description

Crover is tackling the world’s future food challenges with its ground-breaking remote probing device, designed to move easily through cereal grains stored in silos. Mass and quality loss in cereal grains caused by pests, grain moisture and changeable temperatures currently goes largely undetected in cereal stores and these issues can result in a 20-30% product loss in long-term storage silos. Crover is the first product able to monitor grain condition across multiple variables throughout the whole silo, offering real-time data, proactive management benefits and hugely reducing potential product loss, which can contribute up to 215 million tonnes of CO2 per year.
Commiserations to Thomas Farrugia, (Beta Bugs), Johnson Fernandes (Equiwatt), Harrison McDonough (Agrihance) and Isabella West (Hirestreet) who were shortlisted but did not win this time and are encouraged to reapply.
