We are looking to engage with partners who can assist us in our goal of reducing GHG 20% by 2030 and achieving net-zero emissions by 2050. As new technologies emerge, efficiencies will be gained and PepsiCo aims to remain at the forefront of best practices in the food and beverage industry. PepsiCo is seeking technologies to reduce GHGs in all aspects of the supply chain and manufacturing process. Solutions may be in one or more of the following areas: • Agriculture – sustainable farming and the reduction of GHG intensive fertilizers • Manufacturing – adopting energy efficient manufacturing processes; novel methods for utilizing waste; use of renewable thermal energy at scale • Packaging – alternative packaging materials and formats that reduce GHGs • Distribution – technologies to assist in the efficiency of our company-owned and third party fleet
Covid-19 Innovation Challenges by Innoget posted this Technology CallSeeking nurse-led ideas from nurses and nursing students around the world focused on improving COVID-19 patient careNurses have always been critical partners on the frontlines of care, and the backbone of our healthcare system. The COVID-19 pandemic has raised new challenges for nurses and health workers and brought into focus the obstacles that they face around the world, every day. The power of nurse-led innovation and know-how may be more critical than ever when developing potential solutions amid a global crisis. With extensive patient experience, nurses’ ideas have the potential to profoundly improve human health. In connection with our overall commitment to supporting frontline healthcare workers amid the COVID-19 pandemic, Johnson & Johnson is proud to continue the Nurses Innovate QuickFire Challenges series with a new challenge inspired by the NurseHack4Health: COVID-19 Virtual Hackathon where over 500 nurses, healthcare professionals, and tech enthusiasts convened virtually to help ideate potential solutions for COVID-19 health challenges. This QuickFire Challenge is open to all nurse innovators, and aims to help nurture early-stage ideas from the frontlines of COVID-19 by celebrating, supporting, & mentoring the nurse innovators behind them. Introducing the Johnson & Johnson Nurses Innovate QuickFire Challenge in COVID-19 Patient Care together with the American Organization for Nursing LeadershipTM (AONL) and the Society of Nurse Scientists, Innovators, Entrepreneurs, & Leaders (SONSIEL). Nurses from around the world are invited to submit ideas aiming to improve COVID-19 patient care. The nurse innovators with the best idea(s) will receive up to $100,000 in grant funding, mentoring from experts across the Johnson & Johnson Family of Companies, and access to the Johnson & Johnson Innovation – JLABS ecosystem to help bring their ideas to life. As innovators on the frontlines of healthcare, nurses have the power to profoundly change lives. Johnson & Johnson has the scale, resources and know-how to help move them forward. Put these two together, and that changes everything. We have never stopped and never will stop advocating for, elevating and empowering nurses as innovative, critical leaders on the frontline. Learn more about nurses who innovate, and the commitment Johnson & Johnson has made to nurses over the past 120 years at https://nursing.jnj.com/our-commitment.

Innoget posted this Technology CallSeeking novel proposals for the management and dynamic allocation of resources in a post-Covid-19 work setting• 30% improvement in resource utilization. • 30% increase in overall productivity • Improved employee retention rates due to solution enabling novel employment practices (e.g. reduced working hours for highly productive employees, etc.) • 50% reduction in instances of manpower imbalances caused due to poor recruitment / over recruitment of personnel. The solution should be one which the industry would readily accept and adopt, with minimal resistance from employees. It should enable warehouse operators to efficiently measure, improve, recognize, retain and reward the worker based on their productivity level. With such a solution, it would enable effective management of the workforce in post-COVID19 world.
Innoget posted this Technology CallSeeking novel proposals for automated inspection of shipping containers at container depotsThe solution should result in significant time savings and reduce the reliance on manual labour for the container inspection process, hence improving the depot’s handling capacity. The solution should also reduce/eliminate risky activities such as working at height or movement under the container trailer chassis. Being able to remotely/autonomously inspect the containers will make the job more attractive too.

Baltimore Aircoil Company posted this Technology CallSeeking novel technologies to deliver high energy efficiency and low sound air movement to industrial heat rejection equipmentWe are seeking to identify technologies that can deliver improved energy efficiency and lower sound emissions to their industrial heat rejection equipment. The primary focus is to greatly exceed the minimum energy efficiency goals established by the second tier of the European Union’s Directive 327/2011 guideline https://eur-lex.europa.eu/LexUriServ/LexUriServ.do?uri=OJ:L:2011:090:0008:0021:en:PDF while providing industry-leading low sound performance, by ideally meeting or exceeding the 1.1.2020 efficiency levels listed in this working document: https://www.eceee.org/static/media/uploads/site-2/ecodesign/products/ventilation-fans/explnotefanreview20150430.docx For reference, the EU Directive 327/2011 guidelines establish minimum overall efficiency levels for the fan, electric motor, and driving arrangement assemblies. These technologies would support BAC’s mission of providing sustainable, high-efficiency cooling solutions while minimize the environmental impact of our highly energy and water efficient heat rejection solutions.
Baltimore Aircoil Company posted this Technology CallSeeking novel materials and technologies to deliver new and improved sound attenuation to industrial heat rejection equipmentBaltimore Aircoil Company (BAC) seeks to identify materials and technologies that can deliver sound attenuation to their industrial heat rejection equipment. Primary focus is to attenuate/cancel noise from three main characteristics of this equipment: water movement (e.g. spraying, splashing…), air movement, and rotating mechanical components (e.g. fan, motor, belts, bearings…). These materials/technologies could greatly enhance the adoption of our products, especially in densely populated area where sound level restrictions hinder the deployment of BAC’s highly energy and water efficient heat rejection solutions.
PepsiCo posted this Technology CallSeeking novel materials and technologies to deliver new and improved performance to packaging.PepsiCo seeks to identify materials and technologies that can deliver new and improved performance to their packaging. In particular, we are seeking materials that can provide increased functionality in a few key areas: 1. Circular economy/Sustainability • With increased scrutiny on single-use packaging, PepsiCo is interested in new materials and technology that enable packaging to be reused at end of life, preferable again as packaging for the same product. • For some materials that are not readily reusable or recyclable, degradation is the preferred end-of-life. As such, PepsiCo is interested in packaging with unique pre- & post-consumer functionality, such as edible, dissolvable, or compostable films. 2. Functionality • E-Commerce: With the rise of the internet economy and increased consumer demand for online shipping, PepsiCo is interested in materials technologies that deliver new and different functionalities (e.g. protection, authentication of freshness) to the primary and secondary packaging used for e-commerce. Please note: all proposed technologies must have advanced beyond the conceptual stage.
