Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya - UPC posted this:Novel biobased aromatic and aliphatic polyesters from carbohydratesNew biobased aromatic and aliphatic polyesters that can replace isosorbidebased polyesters with improved properties (mechanical, thermal, optical and chemical resistance) have been patented. 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:Enzymatic aqueous preparation for the surface functionalization of paper or cellulosic substratesA new biotechnological product for the chemical modification of the surface of cellulosic substrates has been patented. The bioproduct is obtained from an enzyme-mediator system, and several properties can be easily conferred to substrates applying very low concentrations of this enzymatic product in their surface. Partners to further develop the product and/or to establish commercial agreements along with technical cooperation are sought.

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.
Cracow University of Technology posted this:Laboratory of Photochemistry and Optical SpectroscopyDesign and synthesis of new photoinitiators dedicated for cationic, free-radical and hybrid photopolymerization. The research are performed to improve the speed of the curing processes of polymer coatings by developing innovative polymerization photoinitiators having a very better parameters than those already used in industry. The search for more effective initiators are fully justified from the practical point of view in industry photocurable polymer coatings.

The invention respects to a product with excellent energy absorption capacity to impact and sound damping for vehicle applications, houses, machinery, equipment and devices with superior performance.
Universidad de Alicante posted this:New procedure for the elimination of printed ink from plastic filmThe most innovative aspects of this technology are: • The process for the removal of the ink is completely innovative and ecological, because it does not use organic solvents. • The technology has been successfully tested on different plastics, such as Polythene, Polypropylene, Polyester and Polyamide. It is viable for both water and solvent based inks.
Brunel University London posted this:PRISM: Plastic packaging Recycling using Intelligent Separation technologies for MaterialsPRISM is a process for rapidly automatically sorting packaging based on intelligent labels with invisible markers. Codes are written using luminescent materials, typically inorganic phosphors. At the recycling facility the articles are subject to excitation radiation of a specific wavelength and a few seconds/milliseconds later are subject to infra‑red detection as currently. This 2‑step process can identify articles according to the codes and sort them as specified. The benefits include increased recycling rates, the ability to sort articles by their end use (food, non-food) and composition increasing the value of such plastic. Incorporation into existing recycling facilities is easy and cost‑effective with a limited need for capital investment.
