Ivan Rodriguez Rosello posted this:New procedure for anoxic marine sediment remediationThe “Ecosystem and Biodiversity Management” (Spanish initials: GEB) and “Agricultural Chemistry” (Spanish initials: QA) research groups at the University of Alicante have developed a new anoxic marine sediment remediation system and procedure that allows in situ transformation of soft, black, muddy sediment with a high organic matter content and a characteristic fetid odour into well-oxygenated, firmer sediment that has a much lower organic matter content and is no longer black or foul smelling. The procedure involves injecting oxygen-saturated sea water into the sediment to displace anoxic pore water. A suction pump system collects sea water, which is then stored and treated in a tank by means of a bubbling system to achieve oxygen saturation before being injected via nozzles into the sediment to treat, using an injection sequence of between 90-180 minutes of rest and 50-70 minutes of injection. This technology, which has been developed at laboratory scale and is protected by patent application, could be used for remediation of anoxic sediments on shallow beaches and materials extracted during port dredging that require elimination of anoxic conditions. The research groups are seeking companies or public sector authorities interested in commercial exploitation of the invention.

Universidad de Cádiz posted this:New procedure for the elimination of nutrients from waste waters by photobiotreatment with microalgasUCA researchers have developed a new process for the treatment of waste waters by using microalgae, specifically for the removal of nitrogen and phosphorus. This process is based on applying three fundamental findings made by the research group: • Before the microalgae start to grow, they are already consuming nitrogen and phosphorus when cultivated in waste waters. • The microalgae accumulate nutrients internally in such a way that the assimilation of nutrients commences before the growth phase, and at a rate that is considerably faster than the rate during the generation of biomass. • The initial elimination of nutrients prior to the growth of biomass takes place at a similar rate both in darkness and in the presence of light. To exploit this phenomenon, a procedure has been designed in which the two phases take place separately in two reactors: the first phase for elimination of nutrients from the waste water in darkness (known as ‘luxury uptake’) and the second for the growth of biomass under illumination. What this achieves is not only the efficient removal of the nutrients from the waste water but also, by means of a simple change of the mode of operation of the process, nutrients can be eliminated at night using the excess of biomass generated during daylight hours. To implement this advance, the research group has conceived a process for the separation of the biomass from the culture medium in both phases, by means of membrane technologies. The treatment plant can operate with cellular retention times very much longer than the hydraulic residence times. This, in turn, allows the same flow volumes of waste water to be treated in smaller reactors. • It enables waste waters to be treated at night without the need for a luminous phase. This cannot currently be done with the processes that employ existing photosynthetic organisms. • Simplicity of operation and reduction of costs in comparison with conventional technologies. It avoids the production of more solid residues, i.e. sludges, which require disposal. • The use of microalgae allows the treatment of waste waters with high levels of nitrogen and phosphorus but low content of organic matter (a characteristic of the waste waters of steelworks), since autotrophic organisms are involved. Thus the proposed process avoids the need to add organic matter from an external source, as is the case of other biological processes. • With the possibility of generating energy and capturing CO2, the biomass generated in the process represents value added in terms of energy consumption and environmental protection
Universidad de Alicante posted this:New procedure for the elimination of printed ink from plastic filmThe most innovative aspects of this technology are: • The process for the removal of the ink is completely innovative and ecological, because it does not use organic solvents. • The technology has been successfully tested on different plastics, such as Polythene, Polypropylene, Polyester and Polyamide. It is viable for both water and solvent based inks.
University of Huelva posted this:New procedure for the genetic transformation of plant cells and kit for carrying out said methodThe strategy for transformation is extremely simple and does not involves subcloning the gene of interest in any vector. The kit is not based on specific promoters or regulatory DNA sequences, thus it can be applied to many different plant species, from unicellular microalgae to higher plant protoplasts. Since the strategy is not based on specific promoter or regulatory DNA sequences, only the marker and the gene of interest sequences are inserted in the microalgal genome, avoiding the introduction of undeserible DNA sequences in the transformant strain. This is very important given the concern that transfer of exogenous DNA through transgenesis causes in the public opinion
University of Huelva posted this:New procedure for the purification of water contaminated by metals and the respective systemsThe invention solves the problems of inefficiency which usually shows the conventional passive treatment systems. The reactive fills developed for the removal of inorganic contaminants historically have focused on removing low concentrations of these (typical features of coal mining), however when these fillers are faced to high concentrations of metals (sulfur mining, uranium, industrial water waste…) quickly clogging and loss of reactivity occurs. The present invention allows the removal of metals without clogging and/or loss of reactivity. This is achieved by the use of a coarse inert material with high surface mixed with a fine-grained reactive material, so that the surface of the inert material is breaded with reactive material. Coarse fragments of inert material act as a frame, providing large pores that reduces clogging by precipitates. The small particle size of the reactive material provides a large surface area that increases its reactivity.
Universidad de Alicante posted this:New process for the manufacture of electrodes from superporous nanostructured carbon materialsSpanish University have developed a process for the manufacture of electrodes from superporous nanostructured carbon materials. The process uses electrospraying technique to deposit a suspension of a carbon material over a collector. This method facilitates processing superporous nanostructured carbon materials due to its high efficiency and less complexities compared to conventional techniques. The electrodes obtained can be used in energy storage or analytical sensors in commercial devices.
Universidad de Alicante posted this:New process for the stereoselective synthesis of acetylenic compounds used as additives in galvanic bathsRegarding the existing state of the technique, the electrochemical processes have characteristics which make them very adequate to be applied for the synthesis of organic compounds with industrial application. Here, oxidation processes occurs upon electrodes named anodes where the substance which must be oxidized loses its electrons on the anode without needing conventional oxidising agents. Therefore, contaminants derived from the use of conventional oxidising agents are not generated and hence, no need for the management of hazardous residues is applicable. On the other hand, the electrochemical processes are developed under soft conditions (atmospheric pressure and room temperature) and clearly facilitate further processes of separation of one of the compounds of the reaction mixture.
Universidad de Cádiz posted this:New process for using beer bagasse (spent brewers grain) to obtain raw materials for the production of biofuelsCurrently, considerable quantities of lingo-cellulosic residues are generated continuously in many sectors of the agro-food industry. If these can be suitably processed, they are of great commercial interest to industry as potential raw materials for the production of biofuels and a variety of other high value-added products. The residual biomass of the agro-food industry typically has a high content in lipids, carbohydrates, proteins and other compounds of industrial interest. The only limitations to its use as a precursor of biofuel are the economic viability of the process for obtaining these precursors and their quality. One of the byproducts of special interest for this application is spent beer grain, also known as bagasse; given the existing lack of commercial value, this bagasse is widely available as a low-cost raw material. Currently, the principal application of bagasse is as feedstuff for livestock. In general, bagasse does not represent a source of income for breweries, and the reason why it is sold is to minimize the associated problems of waste management and disposal. The UCA research group on "Allelopathy in Higher Plants and Microorganisms" (FQM- 286) has developed an acid hydrolysis procedure whereby precursor materials for biofuels and other high -value-added products are obtained from beer bagasse. Its content in lipids and food fibre (equal to or more than 5% and 20%, dry weight, respectively), make it an ideal material for this application. This would represent a more attractive commercial outlet for many of the residues resulting from operations of the agro-food industry, and in particular, for beer bagasse. The object of the process is to obtain two different products. The first is an oil consisting mainly of the fats contained in the bagasse; the second is a substance rich in sugars or molasses. The oil is of interest as raw material for the production of biodiesel by the process of transesterification; the molasses can be employed as raw material for the production of bio-ethanol by means of fermentation. Molasses can also be formulated as sugar, after a crystallization process. The oil would be particularly useful for correcting the viscosity of biodiesel, thus achieving the optimum parameters for its use as biofuel. In outline, the process developed by the research group consists of a principal line, in which a series of operations take place for the conditioning of the bagasse, such as milling, extraction of lipids and the separation of the resulting solids. Downstream, this line divides into two secondary lines: in one line, for production of oils, the solvents from the prior extraction stage are separated out; in the other secondary line, for the production of molasses, an acid hydrolysis of the sugars is carried out. Another significant feature is that the optimum operating mode of the process is continuous operation, although batch loading is also accepted.

Fundació URV posted this:New secure electronic ticket system with revocable anonymity and transferabilityThe use of Information Technologies (IT) in the day-by-day operations is growing dramatically. Nowadays, it is possible to perform a lot of actions at home and there are not temporal restrictions. The electronic tickets are an example, we can buy a transport ticket or a movie ticket. In this sense, the smart-phones are a key element because users can buy the e-ticket from any place and can carry tickets while they are moving, and validate them in order to get access to the service. Moreover, the e-ticketing systems must offer the same properties of the paper tickets, i.e. they must be secure, anonymous and transferable. Our system provides a secure method that is anonymous and that allows the ticket transferability between users. We are interested in licensing our method. The e-ticketing system proposed can be used in differents services, so that service providers can adapt the system in order to meet their requirements. The system provides to the users the same properties of some of the paper tickets. The tickets are anonymous and users can transfer them to other users without the interaction of the ticket issuer or the provider. The privacy for the users must be seriously taken into account. The acceptance of a system that could control all the movements of a determined user could lead to a privacy threat. Thus, the users could be reluctant to use a system without the proper privacy protection. Moreover, each user could send her ticket and grant permission to another user. Nonetheless, if one user does some fraud the anonymity can be revoked and the user is identified. The system can be deployed in the cloud for the service providers. The users can use their smart-phones to obtain, use or transfer the e-tickets.

Universidad de Cádiz posted this:New specific and optimized culture medium based on glycerine that increases the yield of processes for producing ethanol and hydrogenExploitation of the large amounts of glycerine produced as a by-product of the production of biodiesel and similar industrial processes. The employment of this culture medium increases the production yield of ethanol and hydrogen, in comparison with that obtained from the use of other sources of carbon. The effect of optimizing the culture medium is to reduce the costs and save energy in the industrial-scale fermentation process. No other alternative culture media exist that have been formulated and optimized for E. coli that would allow greater production yields of ethanol to be obtained. It represents a simple and attractive way of producing hydrogen and ethanol from a carbon source of low price and in plentiful supply. The high degree of reduction of the glycerine, in comparison with sugars, allows reduced chemical compounds such as succinate, xylitol, propionate, hydrogen and others to be obtained.

University of Vigo posted this:New sustainable adsorbent for bleaching efficient industrial effluentsMany industries, such as those belonging to the textile, wine, and paper industry, consume huge volumes of water and, as a result, generate a large amount of contaminated water containing persistent colour pollutant compounds. These compounds represent an environmental and health threat due to their well-known associated problems, such as carcinogenicity, toxicity and mutagenicity. Furthermore, they entail a great environmental impact when discharged in aquatic environments, perceptible at very low concentrations, creating an undesirable visual impact, which, in many cases, does not meet the degree of conformity under the current directives on the wastewater treatment for industrial effluents (Directive 91/271 / EEC). The solution proposed by the research group Chemical Engineering at the University of Vigo, is the use as adsorbent of peat, or a similar lignocellulosic material, immobilized in calcium alginate beads. This process is efficient, cheap and environmentally friendly, unlike other processes and technologies. In fact, the utilization of peat instead of activated carbon as industrial adsorbent has the advantage that peat requires no activation, unlike activated carbon, reducing operating costs. In addition, the low cost of the adsorbent would be translated into significant economic benefits. Moreover, depending on the contaminant removed from the waste effluent, the exhausted adsorbent may be used as soil fertilizer at its end of life.
Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas posted this:New system to modulate the degree of silencing of a gene of interest in plantsCSIC and UPV have developed a system that allows modulating the degree of silencing of any gene that is of interest in plants. Until now, the technologies used to regulate gene expression in plants only allowed to induce a high degree of silencing, but the level of silencing had not been regulated. This new system, through the use of small artificial RNAs (sRNAs), modulates the degree to which gene silencing occurs. This technology has a special interest in the case of wanting to silence a lethal gene and, for example, when the gene that is silenced is regulating the flowering time. Companies interested in patent licensing are sought for the development. An offer for Patent Licensing
