WIPO is the global forum for intellectual property services, policy, information and cooperation. It is a self-funding agency of the United Nations, with 187 member states. WIPO’s mission is to lead the development of a balanced and effective international intellectual property (IP) system that enables innovation and creativity for the benefit of all. The mandate of the organization, governing bodies and procedures are set out in the WIPO Convention, which established WIPO in 1967.

  • Low Impact Development (LID) solutions system called Drainage Block

    Type: 
    Product
    Objective:

    This invention is a Low Impact Development (LID) solutions system called Drainage Block that is effective for retention of rainfall on paved areas in average as well as in extreme conditions. The system is developed for roof runoff but the general idea can also be applied to delay runoff from roads parking lots and in small canals. The Drainage Block is very well applicable in a modular system. Modular application in large paved areas will create nearly endless possibilities to spread the runoff from rainstorm events.

  • Method and system for treating biogenic wastewater with simultaneous generation of fuel

    Type: 
    Product
    Objective:
    Technology:

    Technology Applications:

    • Production of renewable non-greenhouse gas producing and distributed energy in the form of hydrogen gas
    • Using the hydrogen gas to generate electricity with a fuel cell or as a feedstock for synthesis of a wide range of industrially-relevant chemicals and fuels
    • De-nitrification of wastewater specifically in municipal water treatment facilities
    • Treatment of a wide range of biogenic waste streams while recovering energy
    • Production of ammonia and chemicals derived from ammonia
  • AS PROTEK

    Type: 
    Product
    Objective:

    AS PROTEK ® is a method of Ultra high pressure decontamination with suction at the source and treatment of effluent contaminated during the process. The most suitable equipment for the procedure for asbestos removal in the building is the 4 x 4 AS PROTEK ®.

  • Cupric Oxide Recovery using EOCOR™ from Cupric Chloride Etchant Waste

    Type: 
    Product
    Objective:
    Technology:

    1. Outline Cupric chloride etchant waste is discharged from the print circuit board manufacturers. The etchant waste is characterized by a very low pH and high cupric ion and chloride ion concentrations. The EOCOR Process is an on-site recycling technology of the cupric etchant waste. And the product of EOCOR Process is cupric oxide which can be used as a raw material of plating process. For on-site recycling technologies one of the biggest challenges is to avoid chloride contamination.

  • Improved Fluid Distribution System for Bioreactor Landfills

    Type: 
    Product
    Objective:

    Landfills to treat solid waste are divided into two primary categories the \"dry tomb\"" and the bioreactor landfill. The key difference between these two types resides is the fact that bioreactor landfills require controlled addition of leachate or moisture to the solid waste in the landfill. These types of landfills are considered to be more environmentally friendly. The effective recirculation of a leachate and other liquids or fluids (such as steam or air) to the solid waste in the landfill is a major component in a bioreactor landfill.

  • Recycling of Compound Semiconductor Photovoltaics by Means of Ambipolar Eletrolysis

    Type: 
    Product
    Objective:

    Problem: -Toxicity and environmental impact of Cd and Te which is widely used in thin film solar cells -Multiple steps required by current recycling methods Technology: The invention provides a new method to recycle compound semiconductor materials used in the photovoltaic industry using ambipolar electrolysis (AE). The proposed process selectively dissolves the semiconductor material off of the solar cell into a molten salt bath leaving behind the glass and metal wire contacts.
