Method for the characterization and identification of materials with photovoltaic properties.

A Spanish Research Institute in collaboration with a Spanish University has developed a method for determining by mean a photocatalytic reaction, the photovoltaic properties of solid materials capable of acting as light absorbers in photovoltaic devices, which has applications in the energy sector and more specifically in the renewable energy sector.
Partners Interested in a patent license and in the exploitation of the existing know-how are being sought.

Procedure to obtain Biodiesel soap free using CaO as a catalyst.

CSIC has patented a process for biodiesel production soap-free using CaO as a catalysts, reusable, efficient and economical.  The biodiesel obtained has a lower concentration of metals in the alcoholic phase to those obtained using the conventional method.
We are seeking partners interested in licensing the technology and/or commercial exploitation

New catalysts based on the incorporation of Ti (III) in microporous Aluminophosphates for the production of plastics and chemicals with high added value catalysts.

A Spanish Research Institute has developed aluminophosphate-based materials containing Ti in oxidation state (III), which can be either maintained by keeping them under non-oxidant atmosphere or oxidized to (IV) by exposing them to an uncontrolled atmosphere, anyway leading to unprecedented Ti sites in microporous materials: TiIII(OP)4 or TiIV(OP)4, respectively. They can be used as catalysts in redox and/or acid processes such as production of plastics or fine chemicals. Patent license and  the exploitation of the existing know-how are being sought.

Procedure to obtain Biodiesel from oils with high fatty acid concentration using poly-styrensulphonic acid as a catalyst.

CSIC has patented a process for the production of biodiesel using an acid catalyst. This catalyst has the advantages of (1) being soluble in polar solvents (water, methanol), which makes it very active in a homogeneous phase and (2) being reusable, because the catalysts could be recovered by ultra-filtration. It has been tested in the biodiesel synthesis from oils with high content in free fatty acids, triglycerides trans-sterification and for the production of furfural by dehydration of xylose.   

Method for production of maleic acid from renewable sources

The Institute of Catalysis and Petrochemistry has developed a novel method for maleic acid synthesis from furfural, which, at the same time, can be obtained from lignocellulose or plant dry matter (biomass). The method uses a solid titanium silicate as catalyst for the oxidation of furfural with hydrogen peroxide; this solid can be re-used several times. Companies interested in applying this method at industrial scale for the manufacture of maleic acid, under a patent license, are sought.
