However, it is not clear if the common practice of disinfection of surfaces is the optimal one, how effective it is, and if it can be improved. In many cases the drying of disinfection chemicals might leave behind stable thin liquid films and tiny microdroplets (termed microscopic surface wetness), invisible to the naked eye, which likely impacts viruses’ survival. In our lab we commonly study the survival of microorganisms on drying surfaces and in microscopic surface wetness. We recently showed that bacteria can survive in such microscopic wetness even for days. Yet, it is unknown how viruses like the SARS-CoV-2 can survive and remain stable on drying surfaces in particular after disinfection treatment. To study this question, we will test viral stability and survival on several surface types (e.g., plastic stainless steel, glass and cardboard), following suggested disinfectant treatments for SARS-CoV-2 and under various realistic environmental conditions. Then, we will work toward modifications of treatments or recommendations for post treatment steps (e.g. washing with specific agent), to improve common disinfection practices and reduce virus survival on surfaces.

Yissum - Research Development Company of the Hebrew University posted this:Biological Control of Biofilms With Carriers Encapsulating Microbial PredatorsAmos Nussinovitch & Edouard Jurkevitch – Biological Control of Biofilms by Carriers Encapsulating Microbial Predators– (TTM #10882) – The researchers are developing a biodegradable functional system for delivering biocontrol agents to biofilms. The carriers are made of hydrocolloids which encapsulate a high concentration of Bdellovibrio like organisms (BALOs) which are known to fight biofilms. This system is environmentally friendly, prevents the target biofilm from developing resistance and the release rate of the biocontrol agents can be controlled.

Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya - UPC posted this:Precast concrete floating platform to support Off-shore deep sea wind turbinesA new system including the design of the platform and erection process has been developed to produce economical and high-reliable floating support to offshore wind turbines in deep sea waters. A prestressed concrete structure built in a dry-dock, which includes both the floater and the tower is towed to the final position, where it is erected in a simple operation. The nacelle and the turbine can be placed without using a high crane. Partners to further develop the system and/or to establish commercial agreements along with technical cooperation are 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.
University of Vigo posted this:Valorization of whey and vinasses by producing antimicrobial extracts using biotechnological processesThis invention is based on the production of antimicrobial extracts with potential application against pathogenic microorganisms. The biotechnological production of antimicrobial metabolites was carried out using Lactobacillus plantarum strains. Two industrial wastes, whey, and wine distilled lees (or vinasses) were assayed in order to make the process economically competitive with regard to the chemical one. The extracts are mainly composed by lactic acid, 3-phenyllactic and bacteriocins. Whey was enzymatically hydrolyzed and the solutions were fermented sequentially or simultaneously. The bioprocesses were carried out continuously or discontinuously
