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 a method for controlling the implantation of yeasts during alcoholic fermentation
We are interested in knowing if during the alcoholic fermentation yeasts that are fermenting are the same ones that have been inoculated. The molecular method we use is long, we need 2 days to obtain the yeast colony, 1 day to get enough biomass and finally, 1 day to obtain de mitocondrial DNA and do the electrophoresis to know the result. We would like to go faster in obtaining the yeast and the biomass needed to get the result, especially.
Seeking novel technologies to enable consumer promotions using existing packaging components
PepsiCo is interested in new methods to delight and engage with regard to promotional activity using existing packaging components such as bottles, labels and closures. PepsiCo connects with consumers in a variety of ways, such as advertising and social media. On a more personal, individualized level, PepsiCo can also connect with consumers via QR codes on labels or via unique codes added to the underside of a cap. Driven by the unique coding, these under-the-cap (UTC) codes can provide access to product or promotional information or can provide entry into a contest. Once redeemed, unique codes will need to be prohibited from further redemption. In order to access the code, the consumer must first purchase the product and then open the container by breaking the tamper evident bands to access the unique code. Often, however, the UTC codes can be difficult to read using either the human eye or with a cell phone camera. The main challenge: the closure base color has little contrast when compared to the UTC text. This results in a decline in consumer engagement and participation. PepsiCo is seeking: 1. Systems or technologies that can deliver a more positive consumer experience by ensuring greater visibility and legibility to unique UTC codes 2. Alternatives to the traditional UTC codes by leveraging bottles, labels or closure technologies that still require consumer purchase of the product prior to accessing the unique identifier. While PepsiCo is primarily interested in technologies that are closer to commercial availability, early-stage solutions may also be of interest, provided a clear development pathway exists.
Smart bench for ambulances and air-ambulances
The Department of Nursing of the University of Alicante has designed a new ambulances platform, which in addition to the current functions of the platforms allocating the stretchers in vehicles, provides the exact value of the weight of the patient, in real time, facilitating the calculation of precise doses of drugs, fluids, mechanical ventilation, etc. This platform has digitals sensors placed parallel along its lower side bars, connected to a digital transmitter and a screen via bluetooth or Wi-Fi. The design of the electronic device can be configured in a basic mode, just showing the weight of the patient allowing to health professionals to better calculate the correct doses of drugs, etc., by themselves; or its advanced mode, also detailing the exact dose of drugs, fluids, parameters of invasive mechanical ventilation, amount of energy, etc., automatically calculated with an integrated software. Companies interested in the commercial exploitation of the invention through a patent license agreement are sought.
Technologies for the improvement of the mobility of people with motor affectation
The research group "Multisensorial analysis and recognition" from Alcalá University has developed different technologies: a walker, a wheelchair for children of early age, a multisensory cabin and a spoon, to improve the lifes of people with certain motor affections. These inventions are part of the "Padrino Tecnológico Program", which has been designed by the research group itself, to raise funds for the development and adaptation of technical aids that cover the needs detected in people with low personal autonomy. The group seeks collaboration agreements with institutions or companies that want to be part of the "Padrino Tecnológico Program”: http://padrinotecnolognolog.org/proyectos/instituciones/ The group also want to reach license, collaboration, manufacturing or commercial agreements with technical assistance with orthopedic companies, medical equipment, and health technologies.
