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.
arbaz adil posted this Technology CallSeeking individual or group who can make derivative from Rice glucoseCarbohydrates are abundantly available in nature and are produced in bulk amounts. Moreover, they are inexpensive and possess a high chemical as well as enantiomeric purity. focuses on sucrose and glucose as raw material. Although glucose is accessible in large amounts, few non-food applications have been developed. Fundamental research of conformational aspects in relation to their functional properties will result in directed development of new pathways to applications. Derivation of these carbohydrates enlarges the applicability for many purposes, such as detergents, surfactants, sequestrants and sweeteners. The solution required for this project is to produce derivatives from Glucose and convert glucose into valuable product citric acid D-glucitol, HFCS (high fructose corn syrup), gluconic acid, alkyl polyglucosides and others.

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.

PepsiCo posted this Technology CallSeeking novel proposals to incorporate pea protein concentrate into low pH beveragesHumans have cultivated and eaten peas (Pisum sativum) for millennia. Modern consumers are looking to the seed as a promising protein source – it is rich in proteins which can be isolated to make pea protein concentrates (PPC). While PPC are available in many forms and products, little or no research has been done to understand its behavior in low pH solution or model systems. As a result, food producers have encountered difficulties incorporating PPC into acidic products, such as fruit juices. The goal of this project is to identify pea protein concentrates that are suitable for usage in low pH systems or to find technologies capable of processing PPC so that they may be used in low pH environments.

PepsiCo posted this Technology CallSeeking novel technologies to enable consumer promotions using existing packaging componentsPepsiCo 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.
