Wool Stocktake : AWI Annual Report 2015-16
OFF-FARM R&D OBJECTIVE To facilitate the creation of business opportunities within the wool-processing sector, which foster diversification of regional processing capacity, and support the creation of demand for Australian wool. OUTCOMES Generate and transfer knowledge which fosters the creation of business opportunities, enhances sustainability practice, and diversifies regional capacity within the wool-processing pipeline, thereby actively contributing to creation of sustainable demand for Australian wool. INVESTMENT PHILOSOPHY AWI investment will be weighted towards low to moderate risk activities that extend existing technologies to wool- processing regions as well as regions where new processing capacity is emerging. Investment in new technology development will be focused on processes where longer term environmental gains can be achieved, with emphasis on reducing the carbon footprint in manufacturing, garment care, recycling and decomposition. Investment will also be made in the acquisition of data that enables us to advocate the benefits of wool fibre in preference to other fibres in terms of health, safety, protection, comfort and softness. STRATEGY 5 Technical Services Foster diversification of regional wool-processing capacity, and growth in human resource skills and know-how within the wool-processing sector, by providing technical support to wool processors in existing and emerging wool processing hubs, such as China and Vietnam.
