Seeking partners for development of Photovoltaic paint.
We are seeking partners that can contribute to the development of a Photovoltaic coating. A partner should be able to contribute within at least one of the following areas: Photovoltaic coating: A coating that has photovoltaic properties and that allows the extraction of the resulting electrons. The coating might contain perovskite particles or other photocatalytic particles. The binder should be able to disperse the photocatalytic particles and should allow the extraction of the generated electricity while providing good film forming properties. The coating could be water based, solvent based or solvent-free. Current collection: Suitable materials for current collection from the photovoltaic coating. Solution on the position of the electrodes relative to the photovoltaic coating as well as the geometry of the electrodes is of interest. Important criteria's for selection of the proper material includes • The catalytic durability of the material. • The photovoltaic paint as well as the current collectors should be easy to apply on site • The durability when exposed to the environment. • The chosen technology should not contain substances of concern and is a candidate for passing REACH and other equivalent regulations.
Seeking next generation pallet boards
PepsiCo seeks innovative suppliers for pallet boards suitable for use in its production and warehousing efforts. PepsiCo currently uses pallet boards made of Oriented Strand Boards (OSB) when warehousing products and goods in its facilities. Many of these pallets are currently made of 7/8” thick 9-11 ply fir or hardwood CC grade veneer core plywood and, while widely used in multiple PepsiCo production facilities, are susceptible to damage from other equipment including chains, brackets and forklifts (see images attached for examples of damaged pallet boards). At present, a single pallet board has an average functional life span of 3-6 months. To improve operations and reduce waste from damaged pallet boards, PepsiCo is interested in a composite pallet board. While the board can still be OSB, composite boards with other materials (such as plastics or aluminum, could be added for increased strength and resiliency) are of primary interest as long as there is no negative impact on recyclability. While PepsiCo is primarily interested in pallet board technologies that are commercially available, earlier stage technologies are of interest, provided viable development pathways exist.
Seeking Innovative Sustainable Biopolymers and Biorenewable Building Blocks
Synthetic polymers are often used as thickening agents for liquid formulations. Already small quantities (< 1%) enable the formation of a gel network, which is most important for the correct application of the product. However, due to their persistence the reputation of synthetic polymers has deteriorated during the last years, which has increased the demand for natural alternatives. Despite the huge interest of the industry in green alternatives, successful candidates are a rarity, due to numerous technical and commercial hurdles. It is therefore most important to find partnerships with universities, start-ups, or well-established companies, which may lead to the development of new sustainable polymers for industrial and consumer applications.
Wind flow Interface concentrator for VAWT
The researchers of the University have developed a wind flow concentrator incorporated into a Vertical Axe Wind (VAWT), which allows a significant increase in wind speed before being injected to the turbine. The system allows the optimization of the currents with independence of its direction and it is applicable to any type of VAWT. It is suitable for any type of building.
New method for the diagnosis of cutaneous leishmaniasis
Leishmaniasis is an endemic parasitic disease that is found in most parts of the tropics, subtropics and southern Europe. Cutaneous Leishmaniasis (CL) is the most common form of Leishmaniasis. It is caused by the protozoan Leishmania parasites, which are transmitted by the bite of infected female phlebotomine sand-flies. Cutaneous Leishmaniasis causes skin lesions, mainly ulcers, on exposed parts of the body, leaving life-long scars and serious disability. The skin lesions usually develop within several weeks or months after exposure. About 95% of Cutaneous Leishmaniasis cases occur in the Americas, the Mediterranean basin, the Middle East and Central Asia. An estimated number of 0.6 million to 1 million cases occur worldwide annually. Over two thirds of new Cutaneous Leishmaniasis cases occur in the next six countries: Afghanistan, Algeria, Brazil, Colombia, Iran and Syria. Cutaneous Leishmaniasis is diagnosed by detecting Leishmania parasites in tissue specimens from skin lesions via light-microscopic examination of stained slides, specialized culture techniques, or molecular methods. This disease is treatable and curable. Early diagnosis and effective case management reduces the prevalence of the disease and prevents disabilities and death. Hence, early detection and prompt treatment of cases would therefore help to reduce transmission and to monitor the spread and burden of the diseases. In this invention, a new system for non-invasive, early, fast and easy to use diagnosis test for Cutaneous Leishmaniasis from exhaled breath analysis has been developed.
New filter for removing tar, nicotine and toxic compounds from tobacco smoke
The group of investigation of Processing and pyrolysis of polymers of the University of Alicante has developed a new combined filter that eliminates the tar, the nicotine and other toxic gases present in tobacco smoke in a very efficient way more efficiently than current filters available in the market. The invention is characterized because it combines three membranes of different characteristics arranged in a very specific way. The primary membrane (M1), located at the end closest to the tobacco column, is formed by a perforated disk of impermeable material. It also has an outer membrane (M3) of cellulose acetate fiber located at the end in contact with the mouth of the smoker. It can also incorporate a cylindrical intermediate membrane (M2) between M1 and M3 formed by an adsorbent material. This innovative combined filter has a low manufacturing cost, allows to dispense tastes and flavors, and can be applied in both commercial cigarettes and filters for rolling tobacco. Wanted companies interested in acquiring this technology for commercial exploitation.
