Organization from Germany posted this Technology CallSeeking eco-friendly bleaching and oxidative cleaving process for waxesWaxes are typically make up of linear or branched-chain hydrocarbon chains and can contain polar functionalities like e.g. ester or amide groups. Their importance has been well recognized, especially with the growing demand of modern consumer products like packaging, cosmetics and pharmaceutical. Plant-based or renewable waxes are also gaining favor in recent years due to higher sustainability compared to fossil based waxes. We are seeking sustainable green oxidative cleavage process that can convert renewable ester waxes, like rice bran wax and sugar cane wax, to similar end products obtained by conventional processes. Many oxidative cleavage processes are already established in the industry, but not many are eco-friendly. Furthermore, with the shifting focus from fossil waxes to plant-based waxes, alternative oxidative technologies do result in chemically different products from different plants. Here the company is keen to explore modern bleaching technologies or to work with technology-partners with bleaching experiences on renewable materials. The company is open to partners from any country and to a variety of cooperation. Research cooperation agreements with research organizations might yield into publications or consequent R&D contracts.

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 Germany posted this Technology CallSeeking effective ways to combat malodours on surfaces in household areaMalodour is defined as an olfactory stimulant that when detected is considered to be offensive to the individual. Common malodours are often attributed to poor personal hygiene including halitosis, damp dog smells, tobacco smells, bathroom odours as well as damp clothing. Depending on the type and source of odour, specific solutions against it are necessary. The fight against malodours in the household area is time and energy consuming. For many consumers common ways e.g. masking of odour with fragrance are no longer adequate and more effective solutions are required. The company is searching for solutions that can be applied to consumer products to ensure long-term effectiveness in malodour control, especially focusing on new and effective means of eliminating malodours on soft surfaces (e.g. prevent the smell from lingering on clothes or fabrics), as odours can be deposited and easily trapped in materials. The company is specifically looking for a solution which contains active molecules that attract and eliminates malodours completely and permanently.
