University of Alicante new TBF will produce nanoparticles from the olive industry waste

The University of Alicante has participated in the creation of Calpech, a new technology-based company (TBF), which has developed a method that makes the industrial manufacture of encapsulated iron nanoparticles from olive industry waste economically viable.

The University of Alicante adds two new technology-based companies

The first company is Fych Solutions, whose proposal is to reduce the amount of plastic that is sent to landfill by the use of innovative technology to recover materials that currently cannot be recycled, improve the quality of recycled plastic, increase its market and contribute to the circular economy.

The second company, Solublion, aims to put new biopolymeric materials on the market that can be used in the manufacture of new plastic products, with similar functionalities that conventional plastics, but with the added advantage of being biodegradable, compostable and water-soluble, decomposing spontaneously in ecosystems.

An investigation at the IUIPQ patents a system for breathing free air from Covid

A mask that purifies the air you breathe and also cleanses the air you breathe out. And the most important thing in these times, that it would avoid having to reduce the capacity indoors. This is what has patented the professor of the Chemical Process Engineering UI of the University of Alicante (UA) Antonio Marcilla.
