Universidad de Alicante posted this:System for fixing armours during concretingThe research group “Materials and Construction Systems for Buildings”, from the Building and Urbanism Department of the University of Alicante, has developed a new and simple system that allows to fix any type of armours in concrete construction elements during the concreting process. This system avoids the movement of the armours in an efficient, technical and reusable way, and, therefore, also avoids future expensive treatments in case of unwanted movements. This new system is characterized by its low cost, light weight, ease of use and versatility for any constructive element. The research group is looking for companies interested in commercial exploitation.

University of Huelva posted this:Method for the combined foaming/modification of bitumens for use in pavingThis patent describes a cost-effective foamed bitumen process to be applied for cold recycling of aged flexible road pavements. Additionally, the base bitumen used is in-situ modified during the process and, consequently, both low and high temperature properties result remarkably improved. Finally, waste gypsum and phosphogypsum are preferably used to form the foam
Universidad de Alicante posted this:Production of briquettes for energy recovery of furniture waste with polyurethane foamsThe Research Group "Waste, energy, environment and nanotechnology" (WEEN) from the University of Alicante has developed a new compact material and a production process of briquettes of furniture waste. This process makes it possible to carry out the management and the energy recovery of this waste, avoiding the environmental problems associated with its landfilling and also making it easier to transport, handle and store. The briquettes obtained, show physicochemical characteristics similar to the conventional and they have a high energy density being able to be used as fuel for thermal power plants or industrial boilers. Companies in the waste treatment sector and the furniture industry that are interested in commercial exploitation of this technology through licensing agreements and / or technical cooperation are sought.
Universidad de Alcalá-OTRI posted this:Vibroacoustic spectrometry system for the non-destructive analysis of materialsThe research group "Radiation and Sensing Group" of the University of Alcalá presents a system of non-destructive analysis of materials and structures, by spectral study of the indirect vibroacoustic excitations of the materials analyzed. By means of this system it is possible to perform in situ the analysis of materials and structures without previous treatments, solving with that the need to use coupling liquids that the current ultrasonic based systems currently use. The group seeks to reach licensing agreements, collaboration agreements or commercial agreements with technical assistance, with companies from the agrofood, pharmacy, construction, ceramics, wood, cork and other materials sectors.
Universidad de Alcalá-OTRI posted this:Ventilated facade building system of folded sheet without frameA research group from the Department of Architecture of the University of Alcalá (Spain) has developed a ventilated facade system characterized by the incorporation of a folded sheet placed in the middle of the section, which acts as a structural element of the façade and holds the rest of the materials and constituents of the facade. The sheet is folded forming ribs on both sides of the sheet, strengthening the façade and producing suitable modulations for both fixing the outer finishing material and transmitting the loads (own weight and horizontal actions) to the structure of the building by means of fastening elements located in the edge of the floor slab. The group looks for companies in the building sector and manufacturers of facade systems to sign technical cooperation agreements, commercial agreements with technical assistance and patent licensing agreements.
uacoopera posted this:Innovative water saving technology, based on recirculation of the same water when it is warming upThe present invention has the following advantages comparing to existing technologies: 1 - It is easy to mount, either in new construction or in existing, because it is a kit and does not involve works of alteration; 2 - It is modular, which allows scaling the technology to all sites or only where the highest consumption occur; 3 - It is reliable because it is based on components with many years of use in hot water systems; 4 - It is automatic, as it connects with the movement of opening a hot water tap on and automatically shuts down ; 5 - it is economic because while consuming electric power, consumption is very low and only for a few seconds; 6 - has a high cost-benefit ratio, it can generate savings that make the return on investment in short times.
Austria Wirtschaftsservice (AWS) posted this:FRIDS - Moisture–regulating indoor insulation system to improve energy efficiency of old buildingsOld buildings present a special challenge since it is often only possible to insulate them from the inside (e.g. at classified historical monuments). Furthermore, old buildings frequently suffer from damp and condensation problems. FRIDS is an indoor insulation system that guarantees heat insulation and moist removal sustainable solution for ground-contact wall fragments, fire walls, reveals, etc. and offers a permanent solution to this problems.
Universidad de Alicante posted this:Natural hybrids nanopigments synthesis for multiple industrial applications.The Colour and Vision Research Group of the University of Alicante has been designed a new process to develop nano-structured hybrid nanopigments (from synthetic or natural dyes). These nanopigments confer improved optical, thermal, and mechanical properties when they were applied on composite materials. The nanoclays, dyes, and additives have been selected depending on the composite matrix source. Also, it has been selected the additives order in the process of synthesis, based on the material properties that would be going to improve. The parameters that could be control with this new system are: the adsorbed dye concentration, the degradation temperature of the reinforced dye, the degradation temperature of the final nanocomposite, the bending resistant modulus, and the UV-VIS colour fastness. Also, it can be controlled the optical properties as transparency and colouring power degree. It is looking for companies interested in commercial exploitation of these new colored nanomaterials.
Universidad de Alicante posted this:Laboratory device to measure gas diffusion coefficients at real conditions.The Applied Petrology Group of the University of Alicante has developed an automatic device and a method to determine gas diffusion coefficients of single gases from a gas mixture under atmospheric conditions. The device works in a wide range of relative humidity and temperature and can be employed to test any permeable or porous material. The procedure allows to calculate the gas diffusion coefficients for samples with different size and nature (soils, rocks, concretes, synthetic materials, etc.). It is a non-destructive test that can be used to calculate the gas diffusion coefficients of more than one gas at the same time. It is looking for companies that are interested in this technology for its commercial exploitation.

Cracow University of Technology posted this:Low energy building design and thermal refurbishment of existing buildingsOUR MAIN GOALS Tools and good practice procedures for low energy building design, enabling to reduce demand on heating and prevent cooling demand while maintaining high indoor air quality. Because of the big volume of poor quality prefabricated apartment buildings, that still exist in Poland, one of our goals is also to elaborate a scenario of holistic revitalisation of those buildings in accordance with the requirements of sustainable development.
