Nike material recovery challenge

Posted March 7, 2018

Through the Material Recovery Challenge, Nike is seeking innovations that can substantially advance the physical footwear recycling process. Solutions should complement or replace existing process steps to recover purer material outputs than are currently possible. Promising solutions will be considered for implementation at a Nike footwear recovery site.

Successful solutions will:

  • Represent a significant advance in the field of footwear recycling
  • Help evolve existing recycling processes to reliably and efficiently recover pure material outputs from a variety of footwear input types
  • Produce a tangible proof of concept
  • Demonstrate an achievable path to commercial readiness

Challenge participants will compete for a $50,000 cash award, and promising solutions will be considered by Nike for implementation.
