Precision Delivery Technology Enhancing Biological Pesticide Efficacy
With mounting concerns regarding the environmental and health impacts of conventional chemical pesticides, there is a noticeable shift towards biological alternatives. This trend is fueled by a global demand for sustainable agricultural practices and safer, more environmentally-friendly produce. However, a significant challenge persists: the comparatively lower efficacy of biological pesticides. This technology addresses the challenge of low efficacy in biological pesticides, often caused by environmental factors such as heat, UV exposure, and runoffs, especially prevalent in tropical regions. It utilises plant-derived, biodegradable materials to encapsulate the biological pesticides, protecting them from environmental factors, thereby extending their residual treatment effect and reducing usage volumes and re-application frequencies.

Secure Browser for Data Protection: Transforming Remote Work and Collaboration
With the advent of the intelligent era, data has become the core asset of enterprises. Simultaneously, remote work and multi-branch collaboration have emerged as new work modes. Many enterprises urgently need a cybersecurity solution that can ensure data security and improve work efficiency to deliver quality services and enhance competitiveness. Traditional enterprise security measures impose various restrictions on employees’ use of software and hardware and limit access to third-party partners, such as prohibiting access to personal computers and requiring the installation of multiple access endpoints. These restrictions generate several problems to the enterprises, such as complex usage, inadequate security defense capabilities, and high operating costs. To address these issues, the technology owner has launched an innovative enterprise security browser designed to solve security challenges in remote work and multi-location collaboration while optimizing the employee working experience. This enterprise security browser features a lightweight design, is easy to install, and seamlessly integrates into employee workflows without requiring modifications to existing software and hardware. Additionally, it employs a series of dynamic security strategies to enable find grain control over data leakage and user privacy protection, achieving effective and intelligent enterprise data security management. The technology owner is actively seeking partnership with companies with multiple employee identities in the financial and internet sectors, to co-develop and deploy this innovative enterprise security browser. Such collaboration will enable both parties to push the frontiers of data security and offering robust support for the digital transformation of enterprises.
Revolutionizing PGM Recycling: Efficient Recycling of Platinum Group Metals
Platinum group metals (PGMs) are critical raw materials essential in diverse industries, including automotive catalytic converters, jewelry, glassware, petrochemical refining, electronics, and healthcare sectors like pharmaceuticals and dental implants. Primarily sourced through the mining of PGM ores, they constitute about 70% of the global PGM supply, with South Africa and Russia accounting for 85% of this production. This concentration in supply can lead to price gouging and market monopoly. Recycling PGMs from waste not only mitigates the supply shortfall but also reduces environmental impacts compared to mining. However, conventional recycling methods are energy-intensive, requiring temperatures around 1500°C, and involve costly downstream processing to treat waste. Furthermore, the high processing temperatures result in high-value raw materials being burnt and releasing harmful toxins. The technology owner has developed a novel biorecovery method that incorporates and modifies a series of biochemical and biological processes into a streamlined 3-stage process as opposed to the multi-tiered stages of current conventional methods used in industry. It offers the following advantages over the competition: Energy Efficiency: consumes 6x less energy than traditional methods Cost Effective: 3x cheaper in operation cost High Yield: capable of recovering multiple PGM simultaneously with high yield even from low-grade waste Sustainability: support company decarbonization goals by offering a truly green and sustainable recycling manner for spent catalyst
A Novel and Natural Anti-Pathogenic Formulation
The core technology is of a formulation that is an effective natural water based iodine multi-pathogenic solution that is designed to destroy various pathogens quickly. Although, the active ingredients are present at low levels, this formulation has been successfully demonstrated to provide protection and is registered for use as a chemical disinfectant.  The IP involves the creation of a formulation that is novel in having a different and versatile broad spectrum ability to destroys different pathogens and their accompanying cellular survival structures simultaneously and quickly. It functions using diverse mechanisms of action via oxidative and complexation reactions. Additionally, multiple prongs of attack leave little time to mount or develop resistance mechanisms, potentially hindering chances of resistant strains emerging.  It is anticipated that it would be widely used in a variety of settings for personal care and health care applications. Users to date have reported its successful application on a wide range of use cases e.g. for oral use, skin care, wound healing and as disinfectants. The technology owners are seeking partners to carry out test-bedding the various consumer claims in clinical trials, as well as carry as R&D collaboration to further explore new applications. They are also seeking partners who would be able to quickly manufacture and distribute our formulation.
Smart Fistula Needle For Safe Fistula Cannulation And Other Vascular Procedures
Many vascular procedures such as central venous catheter insertion, dialysis catheter insertion, arterial angiograms, etc requires a skilled personnel to complete the task. A fistula used for example, in haemodialysis, is a direct connection of an artery to a vein. Once the fistula is created it is a natural part of the body. When the fistula properly matures, it provides an access with good blood flow that can last for decades. The gold-standard for access is an AV fistula. The success of an AV fistula procedure and vascular cannulation procedures depend on the skill of the medical professional. Potential difficulties during the procedure include: Multiple venepunctures attempts before successful cannulation Accidental puncture of the front vessel wall due to deep insertion Accidental puncture of the opposite side of the vessel wall while inserting the needle further upstream Inadvertent punction of the opposing vessels. Endovascular surgeons, therefore, need an improved device for penetrating the vessel wall during cannulation procedure. This technology is of a smart needle which can reliably gauge the intravascular position of distal end of the needle and detect vessel wall penetration. The device protects against needlestick accidents and accidental back walling of fistula wall.​ It avoids accidental puncturing of the opposing vessel wall and prevents accidental back-walling during the cannulation procedure by automatically deploying a smart sensing stylet after successful needle puncture of vessel wall. The technology owner is seeking for medical device manufacturers, clinical collaborators, and independent dialysis centres to conduct first-in-human studies.
Keratin Templates Derived from Hair and Feathers for Biomedical Applications
We have developed a variety of keratin templates for the healthcare sector namely sponges as tissue fillers, gels for wound healing, sutures and films as cell carriers. These keratin templates can be derived from keratinous wastes such as human hair and chicken feathers, which currently do not have significant commercial value and contribute to environmental pollution through disposal via incineration or landfills. Our technology involves the extraction of keratins from the organic waste streams mentioned, and fabricating various forms using solubilized keratins as the raw material. These materials have been shown to be cell compatible and evoke minimal host tissue response in animal studies. The templates we have developed represent a new class of alternative biomaterials which are functional and sustainable.
