University of Vigo posted this:Procedure for the extraction of biosurfactants contained in corn steep liquorsNowadays, most of the pharmaceutical and cosmetic products in the market contain chemically synthesized surfactants in its composition. In many cases, these surfactants are the same as those used in regular cleanup activities. In order to get more natural and biocompatible products, it would be interesting to include natural surfactants instead of chemical surfactants in the preparation of these pharmaceutical and cosmetic products. These biosurfactants are also present in the formulation of greener nanoparticles, replacing the chemical surfactants currently used in the preparation thereof. Most biosurfactants have antimicrobial activity, which would improve the properties of certain nanoparticles, as well as many pharmaceutical and cosmetic products. The main disadvantage of biosurfactants industrial production is related to the high cost compared to chemically synthesized surfactant production. The solution proposed by the Chemical Engineering research group at the University of Vigo, is the development of eco-friendly simple extraction of biosurfactant from a corn wet-milling industry byproduct, such as corn wash liquors, better known as "corn steep liquor (CSL)", which could compete in terms of cost production with its chemical counterparts.

Center for Technology Transfer and Commercialization of Novosibirsk State University posted this:High-precision environmental monitoring UAV-mobile systemNovosibirsk State University has developed a UAV-mobile complex for high-precision environmental monitoring. Due to the use of a high-frequency magnetometer, highly sensitive gamma-ray spectrometer, gas analyzer, as well as special software for data processing, the costs of environmental monitoring are reduced significantly, often by more than 3-5 times. The University seeks partners for scientific cooperation and service agreements
Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas posted this:Potyvirus viral detection kitCSIC and the Universitat Politècnica de València have developed a method for the detection and quantification of all species of the viral genus Potyvirus present in plant samples. The different species of the genus Potyvirus cause losses of up to 90% of production in crops of high economic interest, such as potato, maize or sugar cane. So far, the only way to identify that the crop was being attacked by a virus of the genus Potyvirus was to make specific detections for each species of the genus. With this new system it is possible to determine if in the samples coming from a culture there is presence of one of the 148 known species of the genus Potyvirus or of some unknown variant of these species. Companies in the agro-food sector interested in incorporating this kit for viral detection are being sought. An offer for Patent Licensing
Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas posted this:Effective method for plant wound healingCSIC and the Center for Research in Agricultural Genomics have developed an effective method for plant tissue regeneration that involves the use of a bacterial cellulose-based biopolymer. The application of this material directly in plant wounds enhances the formation of new cells layers which boosts the healing processes. Industrial partners are being sought to exploit the existing know-how through a patent license agreement. An offer for Patent Licensing

Cracow University of Technology posted this:The synthesis of silver nanoparticles suspension and nanosilver suspension in reductive system with urea for agrochemical and sanitary applications.The main advantage of proposed technology is the presence of urea in the system used commonly as a fertilizer promoting the growth of plants and both antifungal and antibacterial activity against pathogens. It also fits into the current trend towards the use of proecological technologies in industry. The resulting nanoparticles can be used in many industries, but the biggest potential lies in the agrochemical industry.
Spanish National Research Council posted this:Energy harvesting from ambient vibrations for wireless sensors applicationResearchers from the Spanish National Research Council at the Barcelona Microelectronics Institute (IMB-CNM) have recently developed a mechanical energy harvesting device by using a low-cost microelectronic fabrication process. The device acts as an electrical generator and is driven by environmentally-available mechanical energy such as ambient vibrations. Due to its flexibility and small size, it is of easy integration as power generator permitting the provision of full power autonomy to any wireless sensor node during its lifecycle into a network infrastructure following the philosophy “install and forget”. Industrial partners are being sought to exploit the existing know-how through a patent license agreement.
