Reference sectorNEW MATERIALS
IP Protection LevelPATENT Details M. Malinconico, "BIODEGRADABLE MATERIALS FOR SOIL MULCHING BASED ON AQUEOUS MIXTURES OF POLYSACCHARIDES AND PLANT WASTE FIBERS AND METHODS FOR THEIR APPLICATION". . WO2011/128752–PCT/IB2011/000789 April 11, 2011
Description of the innovation projectInnovative mulching spray for crop protection Our activity aims at developing innovative mulching materials for protected cultivation based on biodegradable coatings. The coatings are applied as spray on the soil. The coatings are made of biodegradable water soluble polysaccharides coming from seaweeds or crustaceous shells and reinforced with vegetal fibers, coming from wastes of agro-food products, such as hemp, kenaf, cotton, bamboo, waste cellulose from recycled paper
State of dev.Prototype
Industrial applicationAgriculture, waste management, soil protection. The mulching will protect the cultivation from the appearance of spontaneous weeds, help pest control, reduce water evaporation, reduce soil desertification.
Market segmentThe mulching spray can be promoted towards: 1. private individuals / hobbyists 2. floriculturists, who have the potential to acquire powder concentrate kits and dilute it by themselves. 3. Farms of high value crops (such as biologic, products with higher added value).
Advantage factorThe coatings are applied as spray on the soil. The coatings are made of biodegradable water soluble polysaccharides coming from seaweeds or crustaceous shells and reinforced with vegetal fibers, coming from wastes of agro-food products, such as hemp, kenaf, cotton, bamboo, waste cellulose from recycled paper
Commercial challengeThe technological and creative leap in the study of new bio-polymers opens up new horizons for research applied to the agricultural sector, indicating new technological trajectories to pursue: it represents a starting point in the development of new technologies for innovation in the fields and confirms the prospective validity of the initiative.
