Organization from European Union posted this Technology CallSeeking eco-friendly UV-light stabilizersPolymers are continuously subjected to the action of different stress factors, such as oxygen, heat, UV light, mechanical stress, humidity, etc., during their processing and service life, undergoing overall oxidative degradation, that causes performance and property deterioration. To improve the resistance at high temperatures and long-term weatherability of the polymers during their manufacturing, synthetic antioxidants and UV-light stabilizers are added. Many of these established UV-light stabilizers are seemingly becoming a threat to human health, the environment and natural resources as they are evidently presence in our aquatic ecosystems and persistence in the environment. The company is seeking eco-friendly or/and alternative compounds suitable to be used as UV-light stabilizers for the plastic industry.
Organization from United States posted this Technology CallSeeking IDEAS for a new process to separate close boiling nitrile isomers more cost effectively.There is a byproduct stream from an adiponitrile process that consists of an isomeric mixture of close-boiling, unsaturated, short-chained nitriles (branched and linear), such as 2-pentenenitrile. Traditionally, distillation has been used to separate these isomers. This is an expensive process that leads to higher material cost which subsequently limits the number applications in which these molecules can be used. An alternative technology is sought to the current distillation process that can separate these close boiling isomers more cost effectively. We are seeking existing or early, unproven but plausible ideas for further consideration. Proposers of ideas found to be of interest may be contacted for further paid consultation to discuss.

PepsiCo posted this Technology CallSeeking moisture barrier for bio-based filmsWe have been working on bio-based/biodegradable flexible films for food packaging to help achieve our sustainability goals of having 100% RCB compliance for our packages as well as 20% reduction in GHG by 2030. While flexible package is a very sustainable option from a material use point of view, the multi-layer multi-material structures are not conducive for recycling and mostly end up in the landfill or as litter. While the biodegradable films help us with the end of life issues by designing for managed waste infrastructures like composting and anaerobic digestion, it cannot be at the expense of performance compromises such as reduced shelf stability. Oxygen barrier is not a problem with these films but achieving the very high moisture barrier required for packaging dry foods (< 0.3 g/m2/day under tropical conditions of 38C/90% RH) has been a challenge. We understand that metallization will be needed to achieve the high moisture barrier requirements, but even with metallization we have not been able to reach this barrier with bio-based films. Also, it is important to maintain this barrier under forming conditions in the VFFS process of bag-making. We are looking for novel resins that can be co-extruded with our core resins to form a skin layer with high functionality that can anchor metal to film or highly functional coatings which would serve the same purpose. Inherently high barrier coatings that can be applied as primer coating or top coating over metal could also be a solution.
PepsiCo posted this Technology CallSeeking moisture barrier for paper substrate - Flexible PackagingWe have been working on paper base structures as a potential option for our flexible food packaging to help with our sustainability goals of having 100% RCB compliance for our packages by 2030. While flexible package is a very sustainable option from a material use point of view, the multi-layer multi-material structures are not conducive for recycling and mostly end up in the landfill or as litter. Paper helps us with the end of life issues and can be recyclable, biodegradable and compostable. Maintaining packaging performance such as shelf stability, oxygen and moisture barrier are a must on this project. Oxygen barrier is not a problem with current technologies available but achieving the very high moisture barrier required for packaging dry foods has been a challenge. We understand that new technologies will be needed to achieve the high moisture barrier requirements (< 0.3 g/m2/day under Tropical conditions). Also, it is important to maintain this barrier under forming conditions in the VFFS process of bag-making. We are looking for novel solutions that can be added to the paper, if possible, as a high functional coating applied through flexographic or rotogravure process and/or a skin layer with high functionality that can anchor metal (metallization). The functional layer/coating must be compliant with paper recycling process and biodegradable/compostable.
PepsiCo posted this Technology CallSeeking novel bottle and/or bottle closure sanitation methods that reduce or eliminate the use of chemicals and/or water in the sanitation processPepsiCo is seeking novel bottle and/or bottle closure sanitation methods that reduce or eliminate the use of chemicals and/or water in the sanitation process. It is very important to sanitize packaging containing beverages intended for human consumption. Failure to adequately sanitize bottles and bottle closures to remove bacteria, viruses, molds, yeasts, and spores may have serious consequences with respect to product quality and safety, potentially leading to negative customer reactions or even product recall. Peracetic acid (PAA) is a commonly employed and highly effective sanitizer, particularly when used in conjunction with hydrogen peroxide. However, PAA sanitation processes involve a significant amount of water throughout the process including dilution, water rinsing of packaging post-treatment and chemical disposal. Globally, trillions of gallons of beverages are bottled each year. While preserved carbonated soft drinks (CSDs) are the traditional leader in market share, other drinks such as bottled water, juices, non-preserved CSDs, and ready-to-drink teas and coffees are gaining in share. New inventions are needed to ensure that these drinks remain safe, while reducing unnecessary chemical and/or water consumption during production. Proposed solutions should achieve the following objectives: •Reduce or eliminate the amount of water used in bottle and/or bottle closure sanitation processes; and/or •Reduce or eliminate the use of chemicals in bottle and/or bottle closure sanitation processes.
Covid-19 Innovation Challenges by Innoget posted this Technology CallSeeking novel ideas to strengthen inclusion and empower the "Invisible Billion"The COVID-19 pandemic highlights how countries with platforms (such as digital ID systems, digital payment systems, and integrated social protection information ecosystems) are able to quickly scale up existing or introduce new social protection programs. In particular, countries with such assets have been able to efficiently make emergency cash transfers to vulnerable groups—such as women and girls, the poor, informal workers, migrant workers, people living in remote areas, and refugees. The Mission Billion Challenge seeks solutions to how countries can increase their efforts to further support these groups—who often lack smartphones, computers and broadband internet access—so they can access services and cash transfers with minimal health risks.
