Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas posted this:Enzymatic production of 2,5-furandicarboxylic acid from 5-methoxymethylfurfuraCSIC, University of Zaragoza and Technische Universität Dresden have developed an enzymatic composition and its use as an enzymatic cascade for the production of 2,5-furandicarboxylic acid (FDCA) from 5-methoxymethylfurfural (MMF). This cascade is self-sustained with the only consumption of atmospheric oxygen and the MMF itself. The method can be applied to the conversion of MMF into FDCA step in the bioplastic producing industry, switching from the current inorganic catalysts employed to the use of enzymes for the FDCA production. Industrial partners are being sought to develop and commercialize the enzymatic composition through a patent licence agreement. An offer for Patent Licensing

Universidad de Alcalá-OTRI posted this:Device for taking pictures of the treetopsResearchers at the University of Alcalá present a novel device that allows non-destructive sampling of treetops from the ground to quantify the damage caused by biotic agents (pests) and abiotic (storms, hail, torrential rains) or to control production of fruits, without the need for artificial means of elevating the operator, reducing the risk to the observer and to the health of the tree itself. The research group seeks to achieve commercial or licensing agreements with companies in the forestry sector (wood, cork, ...), agriculture sector or agricultural insurers.
Universidad de Alcalá-OTRI posted this:Service of plant in vitro culture and genetic characterization, focused on forest tree species.The research group on Agroforestry Biotechnology at Alcalá University and the INIA's Unit on Forest Tree Genomics offer a mixed service consisting of micropropagation and plant genotyping, focused on forest tree species, through in vitro culture and molecular markers of high discriminatory power. The in vitro culture is carried out at facilities of Alcalá University, being the INIA the institution in charge of the plant genotyping for their delivery once they have been molecularly characterized. Other plants obtained by other means can be also genotyped as well. Both institutions seek to reach commercial agreements with forestry, reforestation, horticultural companies, plant nurseries, companies specialized on cultivation of woody species to obtain biomass, agrarian transformation companies, ornamental companies and municipalities or local administrations interested in the maintenance of native species. Also, this service would be of special interest for pharmaceutical companies in obtaining bioproducts in general (i.e. willow-Acetyl Salicylic Acid, yew-Taxol, Maritime Pine-Pycnogenol and other active ingredients), and chemical companies interested in obtaining resins and other derivatives.

This protocol has applications in research, aquaculture and ecotoxicology. The process described is fully developed, from how to obtain blastula embryos from sea urchins, composition and concentration used of the cryoprotecting agent, cryopreservation procedure including the cryoprotecting agent addition and dilution methodology, the seeding temperature during freezing and including a post-thawing viability study The possibility of a sea urchin embryo biobank ensures not only the access to test organism embryos all year round but also access to these embryos in places where it was not possible before either for their distance to the ocean or for the lack of the necessary facilities to maintain reproductive adults in optimum conditions to breed. The development of the bioassay using cryopreserved sea urchin embryos will help overcome the seasonal constraints in application of bioassays to assess marine water quality.

IMDEA Water Institute posted this:Aquatic ecotoxicology and ecological risk assessmentEcotoxicology is a multidisciplinary science which aims to assess how interaction between pollutants and the environment affects ecosystems, taking into account the susceptibility of individuals, populations and communities to be affected by and recover from any type of toxic stress. Assessing ecological risk from pollutants requires preliminary research into the emission and transport of contaminating substances in the environment and the exposure to which live organisms may be subjected. Likewise, laboratory and/or field experiments help evaluate the toxic effects caused by different pollutants and exposure patterns. Finally, the results of these studies are combined to calculate the likelihood of ecosystems being affected by the use of potentially toxic substances.
