Organization from Spain posted this Technology CallSeeking for solutions to make LCD displays or similar withstand temperatures above 85ºC working properlySome of our products are outdoors and can be in very hot environments if in the direct sunlight. We have the need for various displays such as LCD units. These typically do not have temperature ratings above 80-85 degrees C. We need to find alternate display technologies for high temp (up to 95ºC) displays for possible use on our products.
Organization from Spain posted this Technology CallSeeking for new available technologies for water quality measurement.We look for solutions or technologies that minimize the problems of current water quality sensors. We are interested in single and/or multiparameter sensors. We are especially interested in solutions based on semiconductor sensing and miniaturization technologies, but open to any other kind of technologies or solutions.
PepsiCo posted this Technology CallSeeking novel proposals to improve water use efficiency both in manufacturing and in agriculturePepsiCo’s business depends on water, and as such, we have a vested interest, and responsibility, to conserve and protect it at all points along our value chain. PepsiCo is seeking technology/approaches to improve water use efficiency both in manufacturing and in agriculture and to replenish the water used in manufacturing to local watersheds. Technologies/approaches addressing water usage in agriculture, the manufacturing process or the processing of waste-water will be considered. Solutions may also include atmospheric water generation or unlocking use of “source” water (improved RO, ZLD, inexpensive filtration).

Strategic Allies Ltd. posted this Technology CallSeeking suppliers of a flexible, durable packing bag able to hold raw materials (solid vegetable matter) for processing at elevated temperaturesOur client is a large company with UK and global operations, manufacturing intermediate ingredients for use in consumer products. The company has an extensive R&D program and is continually innovating to provide the best ingredients, often via new production processes. They have successfully developed a new ingredient, and now wish to optimise and scale-up the batch production process. This requires larger quantities of the processing materials used.
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.

Organization from United States posted this Technology CallSeeking Ideal Topology of a Fibrous Porous MaterialAn irregular structure/topology as the solution is preferred. Not only straight fibers, but also curved fibers and fiber curvature that could come from fibers being entangled should be considered. If an anisotropic topology/structure is identified, please note that the uniaxial compression could come from any direction and the air phase should stay continuous in any space direction. Even if you cannot prove that your topology/structure is ideal, topologies that are substantially better than typical structures are of interest.
PepsiCo posted this Technology CallSeeking moisture barrier for paper substrate - Flexible PackagingWe have been working on paper base structures as a potential option for our flexible food packaging to help with our sustainability goals of having 100% RCB compliance for our packages by 2030. While flexible package is a very sustainable option from a material use point of view, the multi-layer multi-material structures are not conducive for recycling and mostly end up in the landfill or as litter. Paper helps us with the end of life issues and can be recyclable, biodegradable and compostable. Maintaining packaging performance such as shelf stability, oxygen and moisture barrier are a must on this project. Oxygen barrier is not a problem with current technologies available but achieving the very high moisture barrier required for packaging dry foods has been a challenge. We understand that new technologies will be needed to achieve the high moisture barrier requirements (< 0.3 g/m2/day under Tropical conditions). Also, it is important to maintain this barrier under forming conditions in the VFFS process of bag-making. We are looking for novel solutions that can be added to the paper, if possible, as a high functional coating applied through flexographic or rotogravure process and/or a skin layer with high functionality that can anchor metal (metallization). The functional layer/coating must be compliant with paper recycling process and biodegradable/compostable.
PepsiCo posted this Technology CallSeeking moisture barrier for bio-based filmsWe have been working on bio-based/biodegradable flexible films for food packaging to help achieve our sustainability goals of having 100% RCB compliance for our packages as well as 20% reduction in GHG by 2030. While flexible package is a very sustainable option from a material use point of view, the multi-layer multi-material structures are not conducive for recycling and mostly end up in the landfill or as litter. While the biodegradable films help us with the end of life issues by designing for managed waste infrastructures like composting and anaerobic digestion, it cannot be at the expense of performance compromises such as reduced shelf stability. Oxygen barrier is not a problem with these films but achieving the very high moisture barrier required for packaging dry foods (< 0.3 g/m2/day under tropical conditions of 38C/90% RH) has been a challenge. We understand that metallization will be needed to achieve the high moisture barrier requirements, but even with metallization we have not been able to reach this barrier with bio-based films. Also, it is important to maintain this barrier under forming conditions in the VFFS process of bag-making. We are looking for novel resins that can be co-extruded with our core resins to form a skin layer with high functionality that can anchor metal to film or highly functional coatings which would serve the same purpose. Inherently high barrier coatings that can be applied as primer coating or top coating over metal could also be a solution.
