Organization from European Union posted this Technology CallSeeking coatings/materials to alter the wetting features of surfaces (e.g. Superhydrophobicity, Superamphphilicity etc.)We are interested in depositing a coating/primer/material on a soft/flexible surface (ideally the surface is a biological surface) in order to generate non conventional wetting behavior. The coating will impart to the surface one of the following effects: superhydrophobicity, superamphiphobicity or superamphiphilicity. The material composing the matrix of the coating will not be solubilized by water or oils (a small degree of swellability upon water or oil absorption, could be accepted) and will have good adhesion to the surface. The materials should leave a transparent/colorless and elastic/flexible and ideally non-occlusive coating.
Organization from Switzerland posted this Technology CallSeeking compound libraries for a high throughput screening to develop new productsThe company is interested in library partners for rapid compound screening for it's new highly-flexible high throughput experimentation laboratory. This laboratory is designed with a plug-and-play concept, which allows quick integration of specialized workstations to automate each specific workflow. Now the company is looking for compound libraries as basis for a high throughput screening to develop new products for their businesses. For this purpose, they are seeking both synthetic and natural molecule collections and is open to partners from any country. While the company itself is interested to exploit the results of the screening a variety of cooperation is possible. Research cooperation agreements with research organizations might yield into publications or consequent R&D contracts. Technical cooperation with large libraries might help the libraries to describe their portfolio much more in detail or exclusively sell library components to the company. Depending on the development stage of the library compounds licensing compounds to the company might be an option. Depending on joint interests and capacities joint venture might be a way to further develop usability of compounds.
Strategic Allies Ltd. posted this Technology CallSeeking effective means of eliminating malodours in the air and/or on surfacesThis European client is an established manufacturer of a range of consumer products, continually searching for ways to enhance their users’ enjoyment of their products and the environment they are used in. For many consumers, improving the air space they live, travel and work in has become more important, and using traditional air fresheners are no longer sufficient, with a more effective, ‘invisible’, even natural solution being required. Such solutions can be applied to consumer products to ensure the perception of clean air, or be used to refresh the environment around the consumer when odours are apparent. The client is searching for new and effective means of eliminating malodours in the air and/or on surfaces (e.g. prevent the smell from lingering on clothes or skin), as residue can be deposited from the odours and easily trapped in materials. Whilst many manufacturers solve this with simple masking of the compounds with fragrances, our client is specifically looking for a solution which can trap the malodour when it is released and convert it into another compound; hence eliminating the malodour and not allowing it to resurface when the masking agent has worn off
Organization from France posted this Technology CallSeeking for a surface decontamination processSpecialized in the food industry process we are constantly seeking for new and more efficient surface disinfection methods able to remove microbiological risks.
Alexander Kvashnin posted this Technology CallSeeking for technology of super intensive cultivation of white-legged shrimps in salted waterIn the modern practice of industrial shrimp cultivation in open lagoons in Southeast Asia there is a number of significant issues. These include the need to introduce modern water treatment systems, to enhance the biological safety of lagoons and prevent shrimp diseases. Other issues are energy-efficient aeration systems, circulation systems and wastewater treatment. The Vietnamese company aims to launch and then scale up the innovative business in the super-intensive cultivation of white leg shrimps (Litopenaeus vannamei / Penaeus vannamei) in saline water: a mixture of sea and fresh water. Super-intensive shrimp cultivation includes planting density of more than 200-250 pieces of shrimp per square meter or more. Thus, the main issue is the solution of such problems as biosafety and water treatment. In the process of cultivation, a closed cycle of water exchange or total absence of water exchange should be provided. We are interested in technologies of water preparation and treatment, waste processing and other elements of shrimp cultivation technology without the use of harmful chemicals. The company is interested in cooperation with partners that could supply technology and equipment, as well as technical assistance at the stage of launching shrimp production and the the stage of enterprise's reaching the required capacity. The company is going to start up a business on the south coast of Vietnam.

Organization from European Union posted this Technology CallSeeking hyperbranched, non charged, short molecules/dendrimers able to be coupled to keratinous surfacesWe are seeking for molecules/compounds/materials which are chemically composed of two opposite parts (see Fig.). The first part of such molecules has a hyperbranched/dendrimer-like/fork shape. The second part (which is geometrically opposit to the first) is a moiety which will favour attachement. The attachment on the skin or hair surface could be generated by adhesion, covalent bonding, electrostatic attachment etc. For instance such latter moieity could react with free amines present on the hair fibers (more attachment points on the skin and hair could be considered, e.g. hydroxyl groups). Lactone groups are an example reported in literature of a reactive moiety which upon heat application can bound to the free amine of the hair. Once bounded to the skin/hair such molecules will work as molecular spacers. The molecules need to be neutrally charged, rigid, branched and have a low particle density (number of atoms in a physical volume). They will therefore decrease the interaction (e.g. Van der Walls attactions) between external particles (such as sand or dust) and the functionalized surface. Example: N-Glycans are an example of such molecular spacers and an example of desired geometrical structure. Glycan with 5 Mannose units for instance will occupy a Volume of 2.25 x 1.65 x 1.24nm with 162 atoms, which lead to a particle density of 35 x 10(^27) atoms/m^3. Such lower particle density will lead to a reduction of the Hamaker-interaction coeffiecint between the funcitonalized surface and an approaching particle. Such molecule will therefore lead to a decrease of the friction coefficient and adhesion forces.

Stephen O'Connor 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. We wish to improve their waste heat recovery systems by implementing innovative technology to separate the desirable waste steam from the air-steam mixture.

Stephen O'Connor posted this Technology CallSeeking Powder Sterilization TechnologiesWe are seeking efficient and effective technologies to sterilize powdered seasonings without impacting performance characteristics. The powdered seasonings provided to PepsiCo are often comprised of onion or garlic powder. The complete seasoning, or its component ingredients, have the potential for the presence of undesirable microbial contamination. Treatment of these powders by way of irradiation can be effective, however, this technique is not permitted without proper labeling in certain global regions. Given the large surface area of the powders in question, other methods of microbial eradication have typically been ineffective. We would like to identify potential technologies to remove microbial contamination without negatively impacting the physical attributes or flavor profile of the seasoning.
