The desulphurization technology produces tyre derived polymers

(TDP) reuse items in tires

[Country] Canada

[Project Introduction]

With technology developed by professors at the University of Waterloo and an environmentally sustainable rubber desulfurization solution, the project provides a socially responsible and economically advantageous option for global waste tire management to reuse the rubber for the manufacture of new tires.

The project adopts an open innovation/collaboration approach, working with industry leaders to develop, optimize and validate TDP to create demand. Due to the lack of a socially responsible and environmentally sustainable strategy for managing large volumes of ELT, coupled with the low cost of the project product compared to the rubber compounds used in tyre production, the company focused on the desulfurization of ELT rubber to produce reusable tyre-derived polymers in tyre production.

Due to the global distribution of ELT production and tyre manufacturing, the company has chosen a business model of licensing the technology and TDP production systems to serve the global market. Create global demand and drive licensing models through partnerships with leading tire brands.

Dental implant anti-inflammatory prosthesis

Object crystal material


[Country] Canada

[Project Introduction]

In the United States and Canada, there are about 4.5 million cases of implant infection each year, resulting in nearly $20 billion in medical costs. Dental implants have an infection rate of up to 40 percent, and there is no proper treatment for these diseases.

The team has successfully developed a new type of forward-looking nanomaterial that covers a number of potential applications, from reducing the overall cost of dental implants to ensuring the longevity of artificial limbs.

Through an interdisciplinary team of highly specialized dental/biomedical professionals and business experts, the company plans to launch a range of products that will completely change the way implant infections are treated. Currently, the company is ready to sell its first product, a cleaning gel for dental implant care and maintenance, which has surpassed all existing methods and has a global market potential of C $7 billion. The implant maintenance gel is twice as clean as existing competitors and will help the company conquer the market faster, thus accelerating our early development.

The target market for dental implant maintenance and treatment gels is dentists specializing in dental implants. The company will pursue a multi-channel distribution strategy, for example by forming partnerships with one or more of the industry's top distributors (such as Henry Schein, Patterson Dental or Benco Dental) and licensing its products along with the kit to implant companies such as Straumann or Nobel.

Environment-friendly Marine paint


[Country] Germany

[Project Introduction]

Shipping now accounts for more than 90 per cent of global trade. However, ships that add weight and roughness to their hull by attaching mussels and barnacles require up to 40 per cent fuel, resulting in a significant increase in costs and greenhouse gas emissions. Marine pollution costs $150 billion a year in transportation alone, and the market for antifouling paints is about $4 billion a year.

The existing fungicide free coatings are based on organosilicon, which have poor mechanical stability and poor adhesion to the hull and cannot provide long-term stability. Therefore, it is of great significance to develop a mechanically stable and environmentally friendly coating.

The product of this project is an environment-friendly Marine coating with long-term stability. After the development in recent years and the long-term field test, the product has achieved great success, easy to clean, long-term stable performance. With the help of partners in Germany, the company has set up a complete research, development and application system in Kiel.

Solid rubber recovery technology


[country] Great Britain

[Project Introduction]

The company has developed a high-tech recycling technology for used rubber products worldwide, using an ultra-high pressure (UHP) water jet of about 4.200 bar (600.000 lb/square inch). Water flows out of a rotary kiln (3.000 RPM) containing diamond orifice plates and the rubber is crushed by a water jet of about 100 to 400 microns. The droplets are projected at Mach 2, and the energy impact produces many chemical/mechanical effects that destroy the molecules of the vulcanized product. Long chains of polymer and sulfur are broken at their weakest connections. So they can be vulcanized again. The system directly provides a fine powder for devulcanization (up to 400 m=40 mesh), which can be revulcanized without any grinding or grinding. International traders (Singapore) have confirmed their interest in the recycled powder.

Profitability (ROI/EBITDA) is high due to the high market value of recycled products. The global recycling market for EOL large tires (1.4-2m in diameter) and EOL Super tires (DIA4M), tracks, conveyors and fenders is approximately 4 million mt/year. The company has conducted a full-scale trial of this technology to demonstrate the feasibility and economic benefits of crushing recovery for each EOL product.

The company is looking for investors and/or (machinery manufacturing) partners
