IPI posted this Technology CallSeeking Technology Partner and Expertise to Produce Chitosan from Animal BiomassChitin is an important biopolymer that is converted to chitosan for use in many industries. The raw material from which chitin is extracted is typically shrimp/crab shells. Although chitin/chitosan is touted as a green material because it is recovered from waste crustacean shells, the global demand for it is rapidly increasing, whereas the farming or harvesting of crustaceans is environmentally unsustainable. There is thus, the opportunity to develop new processes for the production of chitosan from environmentally sustainable sources. The company has conducted preliminary research on the extraction of chitin from a particular type of animal biomass, and conversion into chitosan via chemical methods. The method has been designed to recover other valuable biomaterials, in addition to chitosan. The research has proven to be feasible and the company is now searching for partners with expertise in chitosan production to scale up this process on a semi-industrial scale.

Organization from Germany posted this Technology CallSeeking multifunctional ingredient with antimicrobial properties for personal care applicationsPreservatives added to personal care product to control microbial spoilage, extend product shelf life and prevent infection in humans. Microbiological control is critical in the beauty industry because microbial spoilage will cause product degradation, leading to potential human health hazard. In recent years, due to growing human health concerns with traditional preservatives like paraben and Isothiazolinones (MIT/CMIT), consumers are drawn toward “’preservative-free’ or ‘self-preserving’ personal care formulations. Here, the company is seeking multifunctional personal care ingredients which apart from delivering its primary property also exhibits a certain level of antimicrobial activity. The ideal ingredients can be emollients, surfactants, rheology modifiers, solubilizer or bio-active. compounds/extracts that can also control microbial spoilage for skin and haircare applications.
Familia Torres posted this Technology CallSeeking a method for controlling the implantation of yeasts during alcoholic fermentationWe are interested in knowing if during the alcoholic fermentation yeasts that are fermenting are the same ones that have been inoculated. The molecular method we use is long, we need 2 days to obtain the yeast colony, 1 day to get enough biomass and finally, 1 day to obtain de mitocondrial DNA and do the electrophoresis to know the result. We would like to go faster in obtaining the yeast and the biomass needed to get the result, especially.
