UNIVERSIDAD DE ALICANTE posted this:Method for recycling of vessels and other structures composed of fiberglass and resinResearchers at the University of Alicante have developed a method to recycle composite fiberglass structures on a polymer matrix (resin). The process removes the polymer matrix, recovering glass fiber which can be reused. The process is not aggressive with fiberglass. It takes place at room temperature and is able to recover all the fiberglass used. The method is industrially scalable and can be automated. Fiberglass composites and resin are widely used in the construction of boat hulls, tanks, wind turbine blades and many other applications. This method is a very important innovation for the sector and there was no effective method that allowed recovering and reusing these materials.

UNIVERSIDAD DE BURGOS posted this:Nuevos Materiales ligeros en base cemento con propiedades mejoradas para la construcción e ingeniería civilUn grupo de investigación de la Universidad de Burgos ha patentado diferentes materiales cuya base es el cemento y que disponen propiedades mejoradas para la construcción e ingeniería civil, en especial para la utilización de los mismos como revestimiento interior/exterior, como relleno de suelos y rejuntado de fábricas. La característica en común a todos ellos es que se utilizan diferentes residuos para los cuales se fijan los criterios de su utilización y dosificaciones básicas que garanticen su resistencia y durabilidad, así como un alto grado de prestación y puesta en obra.
UNIVERSIDAD DE BURGOS posted this:New light materials cement base with improved properties for construction and civil engineerA research group at the University of Burgos have patented different materials whose base are cement and have improved for the construction and civil engineering properties, especially for the use thereof as indoor / outdoor carpet, as landfill soil and grouting factories. The feature common to all is that different wastes are used for which the criteria for their use and basic dosages to ensure strength and durability are set as well as a high degree of performance and application.
UNIVERSIDAD DE BURGOS posted this:Detection Kit for drugs and toxic substancesTest kit for both qualitative and quantitative detection of different types of tertiary amines in situ. Detection of tertiary amines is very important as they are classified in several occasions as toxic analytes and/or contaminants. Among the tertiary amines capable of being detected by the developed method it is possible to include: pyrrolizidines, tropane alkaloids (scopolamine, atropine and cocaine), Opiates (Morphine, Codeine, Heroin).

Universidad de Alcalá-OTRI posted this:Improvement of the working environment and the increase of productivity: diagnosis and solutions to improve the conciliation of work and family life for employees.A research group from the Department of Applied Economics at the University of Alcalá offers a consulting service for diagnosis and solutions to improve the work and family life conciliation for employees. The group is open to reach commercial agreements with companies that want to improve the working environment within their organization for better efficiency and profit maximization. Aware that conciliation is a matter of all, there is a need for men and women to share responsibility of their personal and professional duties. But of course, it is also fundamental a social consciousness aware of the relationship between conciliation and efficiency and better business performance, so that the investment in conciliation policies presume an improvement of business efficiency and loyalty of employees in the companies that follow these practices
Universidad de Alcalá-OTRI posted this:Model of business transformation to increase the competitiveness of the companyA Spanish researcher from the Department of Business Studies at Alcalá University has developed a model of business transformation to improve the competitiveness of the enterprises. The methodology developed allows to identify the modern state of the enterprise and discover its level of competitiveness to prioritize actions to take in the different activities of the value chain, in order to adapt the business model and identify the functions where the real competitive advantages lie in the company and focus on them, and removing the ones that harm its competitiveness. They look for companies with problems of competitiveness to reach commercial agreements with technical assistance or license agreement.
UNIVERSIDAD DE ALICANTE posted this:Weighted suit to enhance muscle developmentThe research group has developed a weighted suit that enhances muscle development. It is very simple: it improves ergonomics, avoids rubbing, it is easy to use (the suit can be worn throughout the day) and is designed to avoid injuries and pathologies and increase training time. The suit has weighted segments arranged proportionally over all the different parts of the user’s body (the exact arrangement is determined by personalised anthropometric studies). The group is seeking companies interested in acquiring and using the technology. Innovative features: The suit is fitted with weighted segments arranged proportionally over the different parts of the user’s body, leaving the head, hands, feet and main joints free. Each segment is allocated a greater or lesser load according to the user’s needs and the activity to be carried out. The arrangement of the weights is determined by personalised anthropometric studies using the Marfell-Jones methodology. The suit is ergonomic and avoids rubbing, is easy to use (it allows muscle development while the user is not training, thus saving time) and, most importantly, does not cause injuries or pathologies.
