University of Huelva posted this:Method for the combined foaming/modification of bitumens for use in pavingThis patent describes a cost-effective foamed bitumen process to be applied for cold recycling of aged flexible road pavements. Additionally, the base bitumen used is in-situ modified during the process and, consequently, both low and high temperature properties result remarkably improved. Finally, waste gypsum and phosphogypsum are preferably used to form the foam

The group looks for licencing agreements and commercial or collaboration agreements with pharmaceutical and petrochemical industry, and those industries in charge of the fertilizer preparation and production of compounds for the treatment of environmental problems.
UATEC - Unidade de Transferência de Tecnologia posted this:Tungsten carbide based composite material, the appropriate method of production and applicationThe preferential production method of the composite material involves the sputtering for the modification of the particle surface by coating them with a nanocrystalline layer of iron-rich metallic binder with variable thickness. The rest of the processing follows the traditional powder metallurgy routes with pressing and sintering in a vacuum furnace. After processing, the composite contains tungsten carbide phase, eta-phase and iron rich binder.
Universidad de Alcalá-OTRI posted this:New organo-metallic catalysts for the hydrogenation of olefinsA research group from the Organometallic Complexes in Catalytic Processes Research Group of the University of Alcalá has developed a range of organo-metallic catalysts with the ability to hydrogenate olefins. These new organo-metallic catalysts are organic complexes of titanium and zirconium. Their application as catalysts in olefin hydrogenation processes gives them great interest to be used in the modification of olefins at industrial level. Technical cooperation, licensing agreements and commercial agreements with technical assistance are sought with companies form the agro-food and petrochemical sector.
