Benemérita Universidad Autónoma de Puebla posted this:PROCESS FOR OBTAINING AN ADSORBENT FROM A WASTE MATERIAL AND USE OF THE ADSORBENTIn the present, a procedure of obtaining adsorbent from a waste material and its use are disclosed. This invention provides a natural waste material, specifically avocado seed, its preparation and use for the filling of columns used in the elimination of contaminants present in wastewater. The particles have an irregular shape and variable size for filling columns of different diameter and length. The adsorbent has the sufficient hardness for avoiding a particle collapse. The material does not rot, is re-generable and ecological. In the present invention the preparation of the adsorbent, its pre-activation, carbonization and application to eliminate the color of textile wastewater is disclosed. The color elimination from textile wastewater, as well as decrease of salts, total suspended solids, chemical oxygen demand (COD) and total organic carbon (TOC), is carried out passing the textile wastewater through a column filled with the prepared adsorbent. In batch systems metals dissolved in water can be eliminated.

University of Granada (OTRI) posted this:Method for treating and obtaining sub-products from residues proceeding from olive millsUGR has developed a procedure for treating residues from olive mills allowing to obtain sub-products with high added value for industry, through the use of clean technologies, without addition of external solvents or other agents during the process avoiding to generate additional residues. Along with residues treatment, the revalorization of effluents is achieved as a potential and profitable source of high-value antioxidants in the market and agro-food, cosmetic, pharmaceutical and biotechnological industries.
University of Vigo posted this:Diagnosis and cleaning using laser technology for the restoration of historical monumentsSince ancient times granite has been used in historic buildings. Some restorers used to apply molten beeswax on their granite surfaces to stop imminent deterioration of the monuments. At first, this treatment was a good solution to consolidate the stone, but with time it resulted counterproductive. This method allows removal and cleaning of wax and other contaminants from porous stones in historical monuments and artworks using nondestructive means through laser technology.
University of Vigo posted this:A novel mild and efficient method to prepare ε-Caprolactam precursor of Nylon 6ε-Caprolactam, the main precursor of the synthetic fibber Nylon 6, is prepared from cyclohexanone oxime by treatment with a new salt as promoter. This procedure requires mild reaction conditions and affords excellent levels of conversion and selectivity to obtain pure ε-caprolactam. No reaction by-products are formed. The new promoter salt is cheap, no corrosive, and easy to prepare. All these characteristics makes the procedure suitable for undustrial purposes.
UATEC - Unidade de Transferência de Tecnologia posted this:System for the collection , storage and exhaled alveolar air conditioning for clinical analysisA group of researchers from Portuguese university developed a device that allows the collection and storage of the exhaled alveolar air by humans. The invention aims simultaneously to overcome some of the technical difficulties in the current state of the art, such as i) little or no response in the selective collection of alveolar air fraction ii) the inability to couple systems that allow concentration/extraction of analytes of interest iii) the inexistence of systems to the storage of the collected biofluid under controlled conditions and iv) the inability to collect exhaled air in liquid or vapor state. The university is looking for companies interested in the industrial production of the equipment and its commercialization.

UNIVERSIDAD DE ALICANTE posted this:Noble metal-free ceria-based diesel soot combustion catalyst, suitable for gas purification in Diesel engine exhaustsThe developed catalyst does not use Pt, which leads to a cheaper product. The resulting catalyst shows equal or even better performance as Pt catalysts. Following the patented procedure of synthesis, the catalyst produced has a lower particle size. This leads to higher surface per particle and therefore, a better ratio yield when interacting in oxidation reactions, leading to a higher oxygen production rate.
Universidad de Cádiz posted this:Device for easy, quick and nondestructive fouling's evaluation in water treatment systems with membranes in spiral configuration.This device allows a faster diagnosis, more efficient and more economic than the alternative proceeding. Its design allows obtaining reliable and accurate information on the degree of fouling and biofouling that membranes of the unit are developing without sacrificing any of them. Its quick placement and removal allows distribute these devices in the facility to improve the management of the facility. It is possible even operate with difference type of membrane for doing comparative studies of resistance to fouling with a view to introducing future changes of the type of membrane in the desalinization plant
Universitat de València posted this:Test Kit for anionic surfactant in waterThe most remarkable advantages provided by this technology are: o Simplicity and versatility of the kit, which allows carrying out a high throughput screening or in situ analysis with very short analysis times. o Low analysis cost, since dyes, organic solvents that generate residues and instrumental equipment are not used. o High sensitivity of the method, that detect anionic surfactant concentration lower than the maximum residue limit established in most of the environmental legislation.
