In order to ensure that we set audacious but achievable goals in this prize competition, we need to both establish a baseline for conventional chicken production and know how plant- and cell-based chicken alternatives are currently performing.
As you can see in the chart below, there are a number of gaps (the red dots) in our research, which we hope the community can fill in.
For chicken and chicken alternatives, we’re missing the following environmental metrics:
- Energy production of conventional chicken and plant-based chicken alternatives.
- Water pollution of cell-based chicken alternatives.
We’d appreciate any guidance you can provide in order to help us establish these metrics!
