  • Resistant Barrier Coating

    Type: 
    Product
    Objective:
    Technology:

    Researchers at Queensland University of Technology have developed a recyclable and renewable barrier coating for paper and cardboard. Historically industrial coatings have included wax or thin plastic films such as polyethylene or polypropylene. However there is an inherent problem with these conventional coatings in that recycling is often very difficult. The novel QUT approach utilises a unique lignin-based formulation to facilitate the formation of a thin film that acts as a barrier to moisture.

  • SOFC Reaction Process Suitable for Use with Sulfur-Containing Fuels

    Type: 
    Product
    Objective:

    The technology is a hybrid process that utilizes both sulfur-tolerant and high power density planar solid fuel cell (PSOFC) stacks to produce power at a higher efficiency. The sulfurtolerant PSOFC stack uses anode materials that selectively convert Hydrogen Sulphide (H2S) present in fuel streams to non-poisoning sulfur compounds. The remaining gas balances which are nearly free of H2S are used as fuel inlet to the conventional PSOFC stack.

  • Systems and Methods for Wave Energy Conversion

    Type: 
    Product
    Objective:
    Technology:

    Background: This technology provides a low cost low maintenance solution for generating electricity from ocean waves. Its unique magnetic coupling system isolates all mechanical components from the harsh marine environment making it ideal for powering sensor arrays communication nodes or other applications within the coastal zone. The technology will help to break down multiple barriers (power and communication) and accelerate development of coastal sensor networks across multiple sectors (environment security commerce etc.) growing the market in the process.

  • Boda Boda Power

    Type: 
    Product

    This is the use of traction to drive dynamo to charge batteriesenergy conversion from rotary motion to electrical energy. The traction due to rotation of the wheel is tapped by use of a dynamo which converts this rotational motion to electrical energy(dc) This is then used to charge lead acid accumulators.

  • AUTOMATIC SWITCH SOLAR INSTALLATION

    Type: 
    Product
    Technology:

    An installation that taps solar energy.It however has an automatic change overtherefore using direct Sunlight during the day and at night the technology utilizes the battery.

  • Mechanical Concrete for Road Construction

    Type: 
    Product

    Tiro Sechaba Construction is the trademark owner and exclusive licensee for Mechanical Concrete technology developed in the USA. The technology is a simpler stronger and more economical method for stabilising and strengthening aggregates and soils used in road construction. It is used for the construction of the road or highway base or shoulder by removing the side wall from waste auto tyres and filling the container with stone particles. This method can triple the load supporting capacity of a typical base.

  • Electric power production from heat generated by microbial processes

    Type: 
    Product

    One of the major problems our society faces today is the steady worldwide growing energy demand. Alternative technologies not fossil and not nuclear are promising energy sources although they are not wholly competitive. There are biological systems allowing direct conversion of biomass into electricity by electrogenic bacteria that produce electrons when oxidize organic matter they are known as Microbial Fuel Cell MFC. The electric yield of MFCs has significantly improved in recent years mainly by increasing the ratio electrode area and reactor volume.

  • Solar Optimization Panels

    Type: 
    Product

    The solar panels insolation is optimized through induction of either voltage or current.

  • mo-Wash Mobile Handwasher

    Type: 
    Product

    The mo-Wash is a standalone handwashing unit developed for use in off-grid and mobile applications such as weddings and funerals. The fully automatic portable floor standing mobile handwasher delivers a 10 second hand wash at the movement of a hand and does not require a foot pump which can be difficult to use.

  • Soil conditioner and method of producing the same

    Type: 
    Product

    To effectively utilize a high-molecular weight material containing acrylonitrile-styrene or acrylonitrile-styrene-conjugated diene or one of their used materials as a higher additional value substance.
