Experimental studies, both in the laboratory scale and in the pilot plant at the Fertilizers Research Institute in Puławy (Poland), carried out for several prototype catalysts confirmed the high catalytic activity of materials offered. These studies consisted of: •passing a mixture of nitrous oxide and helium through the bed of a catalyst placed in a quartz reactor, •passing a tail gases from the pilot plant of nitric acid manufacturing, characterized by the same composition as the tail gases in the real industrial plant, through the catalytic system, and then determining the tail composition after reaction. The degree of decomposition of dinitrogen oxide in a mixture of N2O and He, at a temperature of 300°C was 95%, while decomposition products were only molecular nitrogen and oxygen. The pilot plant at a temperature of 350°C revealed the degree of decomposition of dinitrogen oxide was higher than 90%.
Centre Technology Transfer CITTRU posted this:Catalysts for low-temperature combustion of methane from low-caloric sources and methods for their preparationDue to the rising emission of methane and its extensive contribution to the greenhouse effect, the reduction of CH4 emissions from low-caloric anthropogenic sources is currently a vital importance. The main sources of the methane emission are: exploitation of oil pools, coal mining, pas power stations, landfills, agriculture and biomass. The most popular method of the reduction of methane is its catalytic combustion. Unfortunately, this method has few limitations associated mainly with hard activation of the C-H bond in CH4 and low concentrations of methane in the emitted gases. The catalytic oxidation of methane is limited also by the very large airflows (of order 105 m3/min), passing through the catalyst bed during the process. There is still a lack on the market of a technological solution based on total catalytic combustion of CH4 in the economically reasonable low-temperature window, i.e. below 400 °C. The most popular method among the methods limiting the emission of methane to the atmosphere is the one based on its catalytic combustion. However, this procedure has disadvantages, mainly due to the high activation energy of methane molecules and also because of the low concentration of methane emitted from anthropogenic sources. There is no technology allowing effectively combusting of methane with the concentration of 1-2 % and in the economically justified temperatures, i.e. lower than 400 °C. The fundamental advantages of offered solutions are: - method for preparing catalysts that ensures the repeatability of the parameters and high efficiency in the reactions of methane combustion, - increased both the activity and the thermal stability of the catalysts in comparison with other systems described in the literature, - possibility of using the catalysts in the total oxidation of methane emitted from the low-caloric sources at temperatures below 400 °C.

Frederic Ratel posted this:Catalytic process for the preparation of carboxylic acids from haloalkanes or alkenes.A convergent process for the preparation of terminal carboxylic acids by carboxylation of mixtures of bromoalkenes or mixtures of olefins has been developed. The process is catalytic in nickel and allows preparing a unique product from a mixture of starting materials (regioconvergent process), which allows saving several synthetic and separation steps in processing and renders possible the use of the process with exhaust streams from crackers. The process is useful for the production of fatty acids.

All kind of organic compunds are removed (biodegradable and non biodegradable ones). The catalyst life is around 2-3 years. It is an exothermic process, so the energy needed for the process is just for the start up. The process works at 250-350ºC.
Universidad de Alcalá-OTRI posted this:CATCHAPs/HIPS to test and improve the securityA research group from the Computer Engineering Department of the University of Alcalá proposes a security analysis expertise to those individuals and companies that are developing their own CAPTCHA/HIP proposals or want to test the security of their current proposals. The group can also work towards the improvement of the security of current CAPTCHA/HIP proposals whenever that target is attainable. Moreover, the group has a few CAPTCHA proposals that could be implemented at a grand scale level. These proposals though, need to undergo a security analysis previous to being put into production. It could be possible to share part of the IP with the companies wanting to implement these proposals if they assist the group economically in their initial implementation and security analysis. The group is seeking for individual clients and companies to achieve collaboration and commercial agreements with technical assistance.

Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas posted this:Cebas 57Apricot is a stone fruit species with a long history of cultivation in Spain. Nevertheless, traditional varieties that have served remarkably well in past decades are now struggling to respond to new demands, both relative to cultivation and the market. The spread of the sharka virus (Plum pox virus) in production areas among trees that are not resistant as well as the demand for fruit with characteristics that traditional varieties do not possess have increased efforts to develop new varieties. CEBAS- CSIC of Murcia has played a key role in this process by developing an apricot breeding programme. This programme has obtained a number of new cultivars that largely meet the current demands.
Universidad de Alicante posted this:Cementitious composite with carbon nanofibers that allows monitoring of deformationsThe research group has developed a cement compound that includes carbon nanofibers in cement matrix in order to detect the rate of deformation of the structure when it is subjected to external actions. Thanks to this system can perform reliable measurements in any part of the structure without requiring the use of attached external sensors. Innovative aspects The technology of the University improves the existing technologies due to the use of carbon nanofibers that provide an easier to disperse homogeneously in the cement matrix without additives or additional steps in the manufacturing process. The technology also increases the contact area matrix-nanofiber. This gives to the material more sensitive to the stress of the structure and allows more reliable measurements.

uacoopera posted this:Ceramic slurry with the incorporation of eggshell wasteOne of the main advantages of this technology is using an industrial residue avoiding its deposition. Yearly, in Portugal, the production of eggshell waste is about 2600 tones which mean a cost about 122 Euros/ton for transport and treatment. The economical interest for an industrial unit that produces eggshell derivates is very relevant. For a ceramic unit there is the chance to enlarge the possibility of using a calcium residue substituting calcite, the traditional raw material, more expensive, without affecting final ceramic properties.

Pragmatec posted this:Chitosan-based wound dressing for diabetic foot ulcer treatment and burn woundsChitosan-based wound dressing that stimulates the closure, neovascularization and permanent regeneration of dermis in diabetic feet’s ulcers. It reduces the risk of amputation in patients.This innovation can also be used to prevent or treat wound and burn infections, not only due to its intrinsic antimicrobial properties, but also due to its ability to deliver extrinsic antimicrobial agents to wounds and burns. Additionally, it can be used as a slow-release drug-delivery vehicle for growth factors to stimulate and improve wound healing. This technology offers a complete regeneration of the ulcer using a single copy of the material without the need for invasive treatment, ensuring no backsliding in the development of ulcers. The purification process triggered by the chitosan and the ensuing chemical modifications in the membranes reduce possible allergic reactions and maximize the benefits, such as its antibacterial effects.
