Steinbeis Centre for Technology Transfer India posted this Technology CallSeeking Bio Polymer TechnologyWe are looking for Bio Polymer technology for various applications - mostly packaging. Our client is looking to manufacture bio-polymers in India for supplying for various industry requirements.
Organization from European Union posted this Technology CallSeeking eco-friendly UV-light stabilizersPolymers are continuously subjected to the action of different stress factors, such as oxygen, heat, UV light, mechanical stress, humidity, etc., during their processing and service life, undergoing overall oxidative degradation, that causes performance and property deterioration. To improve the resistance at high temperatures and long-term weatherability of the polymers during their manufacturing, synthetic antioxidants and UV-light stabilizers are added. Many of these established UV-light stabilizers are seemingly becoming a threat to human health, the environment and natural resources as they are evidently presence in our aquatic ecosystems and persistence in the environment. The company is seeking eco-friendly or/and alternative compounds suitable to be used as UV-light stabilizers for the plastic industry.
Qaztech Ventures posted this Technology CallSeeking technology for processing poultry waste bedding material into biofertilizer for crop production* Minimum energy consumption * Shortest production cycle • Without the need for significant expansion (additional space) • Work in the temperature range of +35 -25 degrees C.
Organization from Germany posted this Technology CallSeeking thickening agent/s for surfactant-based systems that can be added at the end of production to increase viscosity1. The solution should be applicable to a cold process 2. Ideally a pre-dispersion or liquid would be preferred 3. The thickening agent should not cause turbidity 4. The solution/s should be compatible with anionic and cationic surfactants. 5. Please exclude bio-polymers as a solution.
Organization from Germany posted this Technology CallSeeking to use structural color or photonic principles to block wavelengths of light based.We are looking for technological solutions which can be applied to block specific ranges of light, Tunable from UV to NIR using structural color or photonic principles. The outcome should be a material which can be scaled up and functions at scale, ideally in a flexible or liquid environment. Classical pigments, small molecules and non-specific scattering are out of scope.
PepsiCo posted this Technology CallSeeking novel packaging technologies to increase consumer engagement for PepsiCo's global beverage and snack productsPepsiCo seeks to deliver a world-class consumer experience with its products and that experience begins with the packaging. PepsiCo seeks to identify a variety of new packaging technologies to increase consumer engagement for its global beverage and snack products. Below are some examples of new innovations and technologies that can deliver a different and unique experience for consumers such as: • Smart/interactive packaging o Consumer-level interactions that are visual, sound-based, touch-based o Technologies can be incorporated into caps, labels, cans, multi-pack carriers, etc. or even via vending equipment or an application o Ideal situation is interactive packaging that triggers a positive emotion in consumer during PepsiCo beverage consumption • Premium and/or personalized packaging o Advanced packaging decoration technologies like innovative labels, inks, etc. o Unique dosing methods or closures o Packaging that can create theater at the point of consumption, e.g. like Drinkfinity o Packaging or materials (e.g. coatings) that can keep beverages colder for longer o Other ways of offering consumer customization • User-friendly packaging o Packaging that is easy to open and use for users of all ages and abilities o Packaging that can inhibit or prevent spillage or mess The above list is not meant to be exclusive – if you have a packaging-related technology that can provide new consumer experience, we'd love to hear from you. Technologies that can successfully combine more than one of these interest areas are highly desirable. Please note: all proposed technologies must have advanced beyond the conceptual stage.
Clariant posted this Technology CallSeeking Innovative Sustainable Biopolymers and Biorenewable Building BlocksSynthetic polymers are often used as thickening agents for liquid formulations. Already small quantities (< 1%) enable the formation of a gel network, which is most important for the correct application of the product. However, due to their persistence the reputation of synthetic polymers has deteriorated during the last years, which has increased the demand for natural alternatives. Despite the huge interest of the industry in green alternatives, successful candidates are a rarity, due to numerous technical and commercial hurdles. It is therefore most important to find partnerships with universities, start-ups, or well-established companies, which may lead to the development of new sustainable polymers for industrial and consumer applications.
Hempel Group posted this Technology CallSeeking partners for development of Photovoltaic paint.We are seeking partners that can contribute to the development of a Photovoltaic coating. A partner should be able to contribute within at least one of the following areas: Photovoltaic coating: A coating that has photovoltaic properties and that allows the extraction of the resulting electrons. The coating might contain perovskite particles or other photocatalytic particles. The binder should be able to disperse the photocatalytic particles and should allow the extraction of the generated electricity while providing good film forming properties. The coating could be water based, solvent based or solvent-free. Current collection: Suitable materials for current collection from the photovoltaic coating. Solution on the position of the electrodes relative to the photovoltaic coating as well as the geometry of the electrodes is of interest. Important criteria's for selection of the proper material includes • The catalytic durability of the material. • The photovoltaic paint as well as the current collectors should be easy to apply on site • The durability when exposed to the environment. • The chosen technology should not contain substances of concern and is a candidate for passing REACH and other equivalent regulations.
