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.
PepsiCo posted this Technology CallSeeking novel proposals to incorporate pea protein concentrate into low pH beveragesHumans have cultivated and eaten peas (Pisum sativum) for millennia. Modern consumers are looking to the seed as a promising protein source – it is rich in proteins which can be isolated to make pea protein concentrates (PPC). While PPC are available in many forms and products, little or no research has been done to understand its behavior in low pH solution or model systems. As a result, food producers have encountered difficulties incorporating PPC into acidic products, such as fruit juices. The goal of this project is to identify pea protein concentrates that are suitable for usage in low pH systems or to find technologies capable of processing PPC so that they may be used in low pH environments.
PepsiCo posted this Technology CallSeeking proposals for understanding whether a no added sugar, no added fat coating syrup and binder syrup can be developedPepsiCo is interested in understanding if a no added sugar, no added fat coating syrup and binder syrup can be developed. Sugar alcohols and allulose are not allowed for this project. Organoleptic properties should be as close to control samples as possible (recipe provided) and should be scale-up feasible.
PepsiCo posted this Technology CallSeeking novel bottle and/or bottle closure sanitation methods that reduce or eliminate the use of chemicals and/or water in the sanitation processPepsiCo is seeking novel bottle and/or bottle closure sanitation methods that reduce or eliminate the use of chemicals and/or water in the sanitation process. It is very important to sanitize packaging containing beverages intended for human consumption. Failure to adequately sanitize bottles and bottle closures to remove bacteria, viruses, molds, yeasts, and spores may have serious consequences with respect to product quality and safety, potentially leading to negative customer reactions or even product recall. Peracetic acid (PAA) is a commonly employed and highly effective sanitizer, particularly when used in conjunction with hydrogen peroxide. However, PAA sanitation processes involve a significant amount of water throughout the process including dilution, water rinsing of packaging post-treatment and chemical disposal. Globally, trillions of gallons of beverages are bottled each year. While preserved carbonated soft drinks (CSDs) are the traditional leader in market share, other drinks such as bottled water, juices, non-preserved CSDs, and ready-to-drink teas and coffees are gaining in share. New inventions are needed to ensure that these drinks remain safe, while reducing unnecessary chemical and/or water consumption during production. Proposed solutions should achieve the following objectives: •Reduce or eliminate the amount of water used in bottle and/or bottle closure sanitation processes; and/or •Reduce or eliminate the use of chemicals in bottle and/or bottle closure sanitation processes.
PepsiCo posted this Technology CallSeeking proof of principle to produce realistic 3D prints of snack productsPepsiCo is seeking proof of principle to produce realistic 3D prints of snack products using mainly photogrammetry techniques. Potential exists to use other scanning techniques but must be able to produce most realistic full colour final product.
