Dr Francois Visser did his first cotton carbon footprint assessment at Auscott Namoi in 2011 as part of his PhD research in developing a carbon footprint calculator for the Australian cotton industry, and has been engaged in this space ever since. After his PhD, Francois stayed on as a Senior researcher at UQ for a number of years focussed on carbon accounting in various industries, and nitrogen use efficiency in cotton.
