This invention develops a process for the removal of zinc from waters, namely, rainwater, resorting to a low-cost biomaterial, resulting in water suitable for use in buildings. The process comprises three steps: (a) preparation of the adsorbent material; (b) removal of zinc from referred water; (c) […]

Method for obtaining a dairy product, e.g. yogurt, with ginger extract and a natural additive, cyclodextrin. Cyclodextrin is a nanocapsule with taste-masking properties, allowing using higher amounts of ginger while keeping a mild taste. The taste-masked yogurt is better accepted by consumers than t[…]

Eco-friendly firelighters, exclusively composed by natural and recycled materials, based on forest waste and bee wax. The firelighter resulting from this mixture is, itself, involved in a vegetal fiber-based paper, which can be detachable and individually used. The product aims the promotion of a be[…]

Network of wireless and passive sensors (without batteries), using a set of unique sensors which use a frequency for the data transfer (obtained by sensors) and another frequency for the reception of energy that is emitted by transmitters that power the sensors. For this, only a central data recepti[…]

Cyclodextrin is a nano-sized capsule that allows increasing the stability and aqueous solubility of active pharmaceutical ingredients such as montelukast. This technology comprehends an alternative method to obtain an amorphous solid composed by montelukast and cyclodextrin. In alternative to conven[…]
