Waste to Worth: Oat Hulls

RFI-150109

This opportunity is closed

Xinova seeks the disclosure of inventions directed to new uses or treatment methods for oat hulls and/or their components.Waste to Worth: Oat Hulls

Oat hulls, or husks, make up about a quarter of oat grains by weight, and yet have a much lower packing density than the oat groats they surround. Unprocessed, oat hulls have low nutrition and are typically used as animal feed or as biofuel. Given their low packing density, many uses are uneconomical if the hulls need to be transported too far from the source.

This RFI seeks new higher value uses of oat hulls, and/or their components. It also seeks improved processes or equipment to provide better yields of valuable by-products. Ideally, inventions are retrofittable to current industry plants and practices. Solutions should provide additional income to oat processors and/or reduce waste treatment costs and reduce environmental impacts.
