The ICP delivers the scientific capacities and technological achievements of our institute to a wide number of socio-economic sectors at both national and international levels (companies, public organisations etc.) via our Unit of Know-how management (UGC). Our principal objective is to achieve that research carried out at the ICP-CSIC is transformed into a social, economical and cultural wellbeing.

Nano-particulate solid for water disinfection

CSIC has developed a solid photocatalyst with biocide activity which can be used for water disinfection in drinking water or sewage water. The main difference with other photocatalyst is the ability to be activated by a wide spectrum of radiation which goes from infrared to ultraviolet light; making possible the use of solar light for activating the biocide effect.  
An industrial partner interested in manufacturing this solid under a license agreement for its application in water treatment plants, or in water supply systems, is sought.

Reactive polymer membrane for water disinfection and chemical contaminant removal

The ICP and the ICTP (CSIC) have developed a polymer membrane for water treatment that acts as antimicrobial disinfectant, while allows removal of chemical contaminants typically present in industrial water. The hydrodynamic resistance of this membrane allows treating high water fluxes and its UV resistance increases its lifetime. Its biocidal effect has been successfully tested for Escherichia Coli (E. Coli), where after short exposure time the bacteria is totally removed without affecting membrane flux, thus revealing its antifouling effect.
An industrial partner interested in manufacturing this membrane under a license agreement for its application in industrial water treatment plants is sought

High active ternary catalyst M-Cu-Ce more stable for the Water gas shift (WGS) reaction.

A Spanish public research organisation has developed a solid ternary catalyst with crystalline structure “fluorite type” and with similar activity and higher stability compare to the conventional catalysts based on noble metals in water gas shift reaction “WGS”.
Industrial partners interested in the exploitation of these catalysts are sought.
