AME025  |  High Performance Adsorbent for Pollution Control

Environmental pollution often leads to serious health hazards for humans; therefore, the development of technology to remove harmful substances from the air is important. A high performance amorphous adsorbent based on oxides of iron has been developed to efficiently remove harmful substances from contaminated soil, water and air. It can be used in a wide range of applications relating to environmental cleanup. This technology is expected to improve the quality of life for people whose living conditions have been affected by contaminated soil. atmospheric and water pollution.

AME070  |  Meeting Stringent Fire Safety Standards with a New Eco-Benign Polymer/Enabler

IPAS (Inorganic Polymer Aqueous Solution) technology presents a sustainable and viable alternative to conventional (compounds based on halogens and phosphorus) Flame Retardant (FR) mechanisms to satisfy stringent International Fire Safety Standards. IPAS provides absolute flame and thermal resistance—incombustibility—by protecting treated materials from coming into contact with oxygen. Whilst IPAS possesses the same level or better anti-flammability and mechanical/physical properties than conventional FR systems, it poses little harm to humans and the environment. IPAS has an easily scalable process, can be made available in various forms for specific industrial needs.

HPC087  |  Mineral-based Sun Care Agent

This technology offers a novel particle of natural minerals for cosmetics facilitates excellent UVA & UVB protection combining upsides of micro- and nanoparticles while preventing their downsides. The sun care agent is designed into platelet-shaped micron particles which are composed of nano primary particles to solve sunscreen manufacturers’ problems, such as toxicity, surface coverage and uncontrolled agglomeration causing uneven texture on surfaces of application.

USS057  |  HABtech: Cost Effective Device for the Control of Harmful Algal Blooms

Harmful Algal Blooms are marine and freshwater blooms of phytoplankton that may cause economic, health and environmental harm. HABTech was created to respond to the urgent need to address the increasing incidence of HABs and its worsening negative effects on coastal communities. The technology is a cheaper and effective device for the control of HABs that uses a clay dispersal unit in removing blooms for the purpose of suppressing the proliferation of toxic algae, preventing paralytic shellfish poisonings and improving water quality. It uses a slurry of clay material mixed with seawater, which is sprayed onto the affected area.
