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.

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. 


CSIC researchers have synthesized1,2-diacetin at up to 98% yield, by immobilized or free lipase-catalyzed hydrolysis of triacetin at moderate pH (e.g. 5,5) and temperature (e.g. 22 ºC), with/without organic solvents. This diacetin is a regio and enantio-selective precursor of high added value compounds: lipid compounds “a la carte”, glycolic acid or phospho-glyceraldehyde. Chemicals manufacturers interested in applying the process under a patent license are sought for an offer for patent licensing
