Innovation Opportunities

Seeking innovative solutions for:

cotton

At Xinova, we innovate on behalf of our many customers in a variety of industries, ranging from leading multinational food and beverage companies to start-ups and small businesses. Today, we are proud to share some information about our work with Cotton Research and Development Corporation (CRDC).

CRDC was established by the Australian Government to work with industry to invest in research, development and extension (RD&E) for a more profitable, sustainable and dynamic cotton industry. The Australian cotton industry has always placed great emphasis on the value of its RD&E. Over the past 10 years alone, RD&E has helped cotton growers reduce their insecticide use by 87 percent, and increase their water use efficiency by 40 percent.

Working in partnership with CRDC, Xinova is exploring new technologies and breakthrough inventions to improve the control and management of cotton color, including reducing or eliminating the risk of cotton discoloration around harvest time. Successful commercialization of a solution would reduce the risk of significant economic losses from color grade penalties and increase the reliability of supply of premium quality Australian cotton. By potentially solving an otherwise “intractable” problem that reduces the economic viability of cotton production, the Australian cotton industry will become more sustainable and competitive.

As stage one of this project, Xinova has undertaken a technology and IP review, including a review of Xinova’s existing patent assets, in search of innovative solutions to the problem of cotton discoloration due to three major contributors – honeydew deposits, microbial action, and moisture damage.
