Clariant posted this Technology CallSeeking Innovative Sustainable Biopolymers and Biorenewable Building BlocksSynthetic 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.

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 for multiphase gas separation to enhance waste heat recovery during dehydration processesDehydration is routinely employed as a cooking process by the food and beverage industry. It uses significant amounts of energy and results in substantial lost heat to the atmosphere in the form of vapor clouds. The presence of atmospheric air, up to 30% by mass, in the air-steam reduces the possibility of waste heat recovery. As a non-condensing gas, it remains in a thin insulating layer at the condensate surface; this layer increases the partial pressure of the air and considerably reduces the heat transfer efficiency between the waste heat (steam) and any recovery medium. Separating the air from the steam significantly enhances the waste heat recovery opportunity. PepsiCo wishes to improve their waste heat recovery systems by implementing innovative technology to separate the desirable waste steam from the air-steam mixture.
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.

Strategic Allies Ltd. posted this Technology CallSeeking taste masking technologies/ingedients/processes for orally ingested bioactivesWe are working with a manufacturer of consumer products utilising a range of natural and synthetic, functional compounds. Many bioactive compounds (such as stimulants, relaxants, enhancers and analgesics) used in nutritional supplements, functional food and beverages, pharmaceutical products and lifestyle products have an unpleasant, strong or bitter taste, or perhaps just an unwanted taste that manufacturers wish to mask for consumers. Additionally, manufacturers are increasingly looking for innovative ways for consumers and patients to benefit from improved performance and efficacy of these compounds. Innovative delivery mechanisms for orally administered drugs, stimulants and other beneficial molecules can provide benefits such as faster absorption, mask taste/odour, increase bio-absorption and avoid first pass liver metabolism. Ultimately this leads to a wider range of dosing options, improved patient compliance, lower overall dosing and increased efficacy.
