This strain is safe, commonly used in the food, cosmetics and pharmaceutical industries. Bioelectrodes according to the inventive could be used in microbial fuel cells, microbial electrolytic cells and potentially for the construction of biosensors. The implementation of the invention will allow for obtaining a new, relatively cheap and easy to build renewable energy source, which will be neutral for human and the environment.

The presented product is in the capacity range where other vertical axis wind turbines (VAWTs) are however its energy production is more effective. The Hungarian firm is looking for industrial partners interested in licence agreement.
Energy & Waste posted this:Biolimp-MPdry. Technology for biogas cleaningBiogas is a dirty gas. Therefore, it requires a previous cleaning to be used as biofuel. There are many components to be removing, among them, water vapor, siloxane, halogenated hydrocarbons and H2S, all of them, affects the good performance of the CHP system. The Biolimp-MPdry technology is a multipropose technology that allows the biogas cleaning with a very lower costs and high performace yield.
Energy & Waste posted this:Biogas dryer. For biogas water vapor removingBiolimp-Dry technology combines the cooling and condensation techniques, allowing to achieve elimination efficiency of over 95% depending on the working temperature with low operating costs. This can include a washer-recuperator, which in addition to minimizing the energy needs of the operation, allows to wash the biogas with its own condensates, which produces a partial reduction of the H2S and NH3, that accompany the biogas, reason why it can be considered a multipurpose technology.
University of Huelva posted this:New power generation electric systemThe proposed system is characterized by the following aspects which make it unique: 1- The system is built from a number of PEM fuel cells, supplied by al least one hydrogen source. Each module include a monitoring and control subsystem, so it is possible to activate/deactivate module induividually. 2- Each module can supply a different power value. 3- The monitoring and control subsystem receives electrical signal from each modules like stack voltage, stack current and cell voltage. 4- The monitoring and control system has two levels: the first level aims to control each module (local control) and the second level is responsible for coordinate local controller. 5- The monitoring and control system is on-line accessible. 6- The control and monitoring system distributes homogeneously the operating hours between the modules when the power demand is lower than the maximum power. 7- Each module has a oxygenation/cooling subsystem which supplies oxygen to cathide and air for refrigerate the stack. 8- Each module has a hydrogen subsystem wich is the responsible for hydrogen delivery to stack at ambient pressure. 9- The hydrogen subsystem include a hydrogen purge line. 10- The Electric Power Generation System includes a simulator to reproduce the performance ogf the whole subsystem.
UNIVERSIDAD DE ALICANTE posted this:Production of briquettes for energy recovery of furniture waste with polyurethane foamsThe Research Group "Waste, energy, environment and nanotechnology" (WEEN) from the University of Alicante has developed a new compact material and a production process of briquettes of furniture waste. This process makes it possible to carry out the management and the energy recovery of this waste, avoiding the environmental problems associated with its landfilling and also making it easier to transport, handle and store. The briquettes obtained, show physicochemical characteristics similar to the conventional and they have a high energy density being able to be used as fuel for thermal power plants or industrial boilers. Companies in the waste treatment sector and the furniture industry that are interested in commercial exploitation of this technology through licensing agreements and / or technical cooperation are sought.

UNIVERSIDAD DE ALICANTE posted this:Sustainable production of biofuel (bioethanol) from shellfish wasteThe research group of Plant Pathology at the University of Alicante has developed a new process by using fungi to produce biofuel (bioethanol) and fungal biomass for agrobiotech use from shellfish waste. It is a sustainable alternative to agroforestry crops currently used. The current technology stands out because it uses chitosan as the sole source of nutrients, and produces bioethanol in profitable, sustainable and environmentally friendly manner. The research group is looking for companies or investors partners interested in acquiring this technology for commercial exploitation.
