Development of binder system for manufacturing metallic and ceramic parts by Powder Injection Molding technology

What we offer:
Large experience in Powder Injection Moulding (PIM), a development of polymer injection processes, which permits the production of large series of parts with highly complex shapes. This technology incorporates the advantages of plastic injection moulding, but can be applied to ceramic and metallic materials. The process has been developed both for ceramic and metallic powders, can be considered as an hybrid between plastic injection moulding and conventional powder metallurgy forming.
Small and complex shape parts that cannot possible be obtained by conventional manufacturing technologies are achieved. The research group has developed in collaboration with different companies several binder systems to obtain ceramic and metallic parts from nano to micropowders.

What are we looking for:
To establish collaborations with manufacturing companies of plastics, metals or ceramics from different industrial sectors (automotive, aeronautic, electronic…) that would like to incorporate this manufacturing technology.

Development and Optimization of Production Process of metallic or ceramic profiles by Powder Extrusion Moulding (PEM)

What we offer:
A large experience in Powder Extrusion Moulding (PEM). This technology allows to produce ceramic or metallic profiles both hollow and solid with very high accuracy. The research group has adapted this technology for the production of metallic or ceramic microsheets and microtubes for its application in Solid Oxide Fuel Cells (SOFC).

What are we looking for:
To establish collaborations with manufacturing companies of plastics, metals or ceramics from different industrial sectors (automotive, aeronautic, electronic, energetic, etc.) that could be interested in incorporating this technology or could need a product development by this technology.

Compact device for mass transfer between liquid films and vapour or gas.

What we offer:
A method and device for mass transfer between liquid and vapour or gas. The technology is applicable to absorbers and desorbers in absorption chiller technology, evaporators, condensers and chemical reactors.
The device requires fewer components and less material than other current alternatives. Small amount of fluid volume inside the device.
Reduced costs of storage and shipping, because of the save on weight and space of the device.
Less energy resources are consumed, thus reducing the produced pollution and the variable costs.
Improved efficiency of heat and mass transfer in a wide range of operating conditions.
Simple hardware architecture and easy to operate device
Reduced number of equipment involved

What are we looking for:
Technological partners are seeking in order to further develop the technology, assess its commercial viability and/or proceed with commercial exploitation. This technology can be used for absorbers and desorbers (e.g. absorption refrigeration systems), evaporators, condensers and chemical reactors.

Polymer reinforcement with nanoparticles

What we offer:
The development and characterization of polymeric materials, focussed in their reinforcement through the dispersion of nanoparticles. Following this method, very small additions of nanoreinforcements usually improve mechanical, electrical and optical properties, as well as the service performance of these materials.

What are we looking for:
The research group is looking for companies interested in applying nanotechnologies to polymers of industrial interest.

New Multifunctional Nanocomposites for Advanced applications

What we offer:
The development and characterization at the macro, micro and nanoscale of new nanocomposite materials;
The use of fluorescent probes and labels to monitor changes at the nanoscale and molecular level that take place both in polymers or polymer blends in polymer matrix composites;
The use of atomic force microscopy (AFM, EFM and MFM) to study morphology (visualization of interphases) and mechanical properties (nanoindentation) micro and nanoscale.

What are we looking for:
Technical cooperation of companies interested in preparing composite materials with special properties (electrical, piezoelectric, thermal (CTE), ...) by introducing nanoparticles.

Biomembranes for wastewater treatment.

What we offer:
Optimisation of the design and set-up of membrane bioreactors (MBR), advised for higher quality of the treated water or to increase the treatment capacity.
MBR systems present the following advantages over Active Sludge systems:
•A higher capacity (volume) for the same facility size.
•A lower amount of sludge produced per cubic meter of treated water.
•Better quality of the treated water, allowing its direct discharge to cultivated surfaces or to recharge aquifers.

What are we looking for:
Companies interested in applying or developing this technology or micro and ultra filtration membrane producers who want to extend their market to water treatment by MBR.
