Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya - UPC posted this:New lossless data compression system with quick operation and high compression efficiencyA joint UB/UPC team has developed a new lossless data compression system excellent for applications requiring at the same time high compression ratios and quick operation with low CPU load. The system under the named FAPEC (Fully Adaptive Prediction Error Coder) is an algorithm that combines low processing requirements with high compression efficiency under almost any scenario. Partners to further develop the system and/or to establish license agreements with technical cooperation are sought.
Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya - UPC posted this:NEW SOLUTION TO PREVENT EXCESSIVE WEAR IN GEAR USEFUL FOR WIND TURBINESA new system to prevent the excessive wear in a tooth gear has been developed and patented. The system is specially developed to prevent the wear at the pitch and/or yaw gear tooth systems from the wind turbines but it could be used in others gears applications. Partners to further develop the system and/ or to establish commercial agreements along with technical cooperation are sought.
Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya - UPC posted this:Environmental Quality Assessment of contaminated soilsEnvironmental quality of soils is determined using analytical chemistry methods, with expensive and sophisticated equipment. Toxicity assays provide a global response regarding the danger of contaminated soil to living organisms. However bioassays are based in lengthy experimental procedures (between 7 and 28 days) to provide reliable results. Normalized soil assays use different species of earthworms and collembola that must be grown and maintained in specialized facilities. Partners to further develop the technology and/or to establish commercial agreements along with technical cooperation are sought.
Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya - UPC posted this:New bio-based insulation material from vegetal pith and natural bindersPartners to further develop the system through technical cooperation are sought. The areas of developing are: performance improvement: use of other bio-based binders and additives, material applications (construction systems, renders, etc.) and manufacture at commercial scale. Partners to establish commercial agreements are also sought.
University of Vigo posted this:Innovative process for the removal of persistent organic pollutants present in wastewater streams.This is the first time that surfactants-based aqueous phase segregation has been proposed for the remediation of aromatic organic pollutants. Up to know, biological degradation was used alone or in combination with other physical and chemical methods (e.g. volatilization, sorption, electrokinetic, oxidation, extraction with supercritical fluids, etc.), that often entail economic and environmental disadvantages. Therefore, the proposed strategy is an environmentally friendly alternative that entails benefits such as low energy consumption, low cost, availability of reagents at bulk quantities and easy implementation.

Universidad de Alicante posted this:New metal-free electrocatalysts for fuel cellsThe Carbon Materials and Environment Research Group of the University of Alicante has developed a new method for obtaining carbon materials with excellent properties such as electrocatalysts in fuel cells or metal-air batteries. The process is based on the thermal treatment of polyaniline (or its derivatives) at high temperature and allows to obtain metal-free carbon materials with a high performance, in a very simple, fast way and in a single stage. These novel materials are characterized by their excellent catalytic activity and selectivity in the oxygen reduction reaction in alkaline medium, they are very stable and resistant to methanol and carbon monoxide poisoning, and above all, they stand out for their low manufacturing cost, which makes them promising candidates to replace the current commercial platinum-based catalysts. We are looking for companies interested in acquiring this technology for commercial exploitation.

Yissum - Research Development Company of the Hebrew University posted this:A Novel Biosensor for Detecting Wine SpoilageIn the proposed research we describe a novel, efficient and low-cost approaches for detection of acetic acid in wines. The first technique is based on the interaction of acetic acid volatiles with a specific receptor from the bacterium Bacillus subtilis. The receptor, which is encoded within a bacterial biosensor, will activate a reporter gene in the presence of volatiles of acetic acid. Project ID : 8-2018-4662
Center for Technology Transfer and Commercialization of Novosibirsk State University posted this:Novel technology of geological mapping with reduced exploration costsNovosibirsk State University (Russia) has developed a new paradigm of geological mapping of Pacific-type folded belts. It allows to improve the quality of geological mapping and to reduce the cost of geological exploration of natural resources. Exploration costs are cut down by excluding/reducing the scope of surface and subsurface exploration in unpromising areas. The university seeks for partners to sign commercial agreements, R&D agreements, and service contracts.
Center for Technology Transfer and Commercialization of Novosibirsk State University posted this:UAV-mobile geophysical complex for oil and gas exploration and productionNSU developed a UAV-mobile complex for geophysical research. It uses a high-frequency and highly sensitive vector magnetometer, gamma-spectrometer, gas analyzer, as well as special software for data processing, which creates a high-precision description of the depth of occurrence and morphology of magnetic anomaly with the size of up to tens of centimeters and less. Due to this, the costs of exploration are significantly, often more than 10 times lower than using conventional methods.
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:Enzymatic production of 2,5-furandicarboxylic acid from 5-methoxymethylfurfuraa a l l CSIC, 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
