Azotic Technologies Ltd was established to develop and commercialise a natural nitrogen technology that provides a sustainable solution to fertiliser overuse.
Azotic Technologies has identified a new platform nitrogen technology; the Company will commercialise technologies based on this platform through appropriate partnerships in R&D and routes to market.
Azotic Technologies management team have proven experience in the development and commercialisation of new technologies within agriculture. Our combined expertise will benefit the advancement and marketing of our natural nitrogen technology which is designed for our 21st Century needs in agriculture.
Azotic’s new nitrogen-fixing technology has been developed by Professor Edward (Ted) Cocking FRS, a leading world expert on nitrogen and plant science. Professor Cocking is Director of the Centre for Crop Nitrogen Fixation at the University of Nottingham. He has pioneered studies on the interaction of nitrogen-fixing bacteria with plant cells in non-legume crops and the regeneration of cereals from cell cultures. Professor Cocking is a Fellow of the Royal Society and also a Fellow of the World Innovation Foundation and Institute of Biology. He was honoured with a Lifetime Achievement Award for International Research on Plant Nitrogen Fixation by the University of Toledo, USA in 2004.
Azotic has an agreement with the University of Nottingham to commercialise this technology. We are working very closely with Professor Cocking to develop several versions of N-Fix technology and thereby add value to Azotic with new IP.
The University of Nottingham has a strong international track record in developing new technologies and collaboration with industry. It is ranked the top University of UK Universities for agriculture and food sciences. The University of Nottingham’s Plant and Crop Sciences Division is internationally acclaimed as a centre for fundamental and applied research, underpinning our understanding of agriculture, food production and quality, and the natural environment. It has one of the largest communities of plant scientists in the UK.
