A PROCESS FOR ENGINEERING MORE EFFICIENT AND CHEAPER CATALYSTS FOR HYDROGEN FUEL CELLS

Hydrogen fuel cells will have an important role in reducing carbon footprint as they offer environmentally friendly alternative to fossil-based fuels by converting hydrogen as a fuel and oxygen from the air in clean electricity with only by-product being water. In 2016, the fuel cells’ global market value was estimated at 3.2bn USD with 20% CAGR that will lead to up-to 25bn USD by 2025. This is a versatile energy source with many potential applications in the transport sector as…

CELL-BASED DEVICE FOR LOCAL TREATMENT WITH THERAPEUTIC PROTEINS

The Institute’s invention is a device that is comprised of a Teflon tube, permanently sealed on both ends, which contains stable cell lines. Different types of injuries demand different types of regenerative process and the device usually carries multiple types of cells, secreting multiple types of growth factors. This approach enables more control over the regeneration process and consequently better outcomes.

SILYLATED CELLULOSE BASED INTERFACIAL PROTECTIVE LAYER ON A LITHIUM SURFACE

Lithium metal batteries are among the most promising candidates for next-generation high-density energy storage devices due to unrivalled high specific capacity and the lowest reduction potential of lithium metal anode. Estimations are that the global market will grow with a CAGR of 17% and reach the value of USD 100bn by 2025. This growth also depends on solving some of the current challenges. The usage of the lithium metal anode is obstructed by at least three issues; dendritic deposition of…

SELF-ASSEMBLED PROTEIN NANOSTRUCTURES

This invention applies to a new technology with the help of which it is possible to plan polypeptide chains which, by self-assembly, form protein nanostructures. Polypeptides are assembled modularly from linked peptide segments that in pairs form coils and thus the side of a polyhedron. The invention makes it possible to design new protein structures not found in nature, and the input of selected functions into positions with nanometer resolution, which makes it possible to prepare technologically interesting advanced nanomaterials.…

Innovative method for preparation of functionalized superparamagnetic adsorbents with precursor trimethoxy (3,3,3-trifluoropropyl) silane (F-TriMOS)

Classical methods of cleaning oil spills do not give satisfactory results in removing the oil from the water, but functionalized nanomaterials show high potential to become a cost-effective, efficient, and environmentally friendly solution. Among the existing methods of cleaning oil stains from water, the use of various adsorptive materials, such as silicon dioxide, titanium dioxide, zinc oxide and aluminum oxide are present. These materials are non-biodegradable and represent a high risk of secondary pollution. The invention of researchers at the…
