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.
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.
Organization from Germany posted this Technology CallSeeking Technologies relating to Asphaltenes Agglomeration in Crude OilAn important challenge in the oil industry is to transport crude oils through pipelines while minimizing potential transport issues like formation damage and plugging of wellbores, production facilities, and pipelines due to asphaltenes agglomeration. Asphaltenes agglomeration occurs when the equilibrium of the asphaltene and resins is altered due to the changing flow conditions during transportation. Since the viscosity of crude oil which is a key governing parameter in fluid transportation in pipelines and asphaltenes content are both closely related – any fluctuation in the temperature, pressure, and oil composition in the pipelines can easier trigger an industrial debacle. The company is seeking chemical flow improvers i.e. surfactants, polymers, small molecules, etc. and analytical/computational methods to study the mechanism of asphaltenes agglomeration.
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.
