Past Projects


  • 2014
    (2nd run)


    NUS, ChBE

    Principal Investigators: Assoc Prof Sibudjing Kawi
    Entrepreneurial Leads: Yasotha Kathiraser
    Team members: Usman Oemar, Ang Ming Li

    Project description: Anti-Cokecat involves a facile preparation method for highly dispersed supported metal catalyst with anti-coking properties for CO2 reforming of natural gas/biogas to syngas and hydrogen.

  • 2014
    (2nd run)



    Principal Investigators: Heisel Felix, Researcher
    Entrepreneurial Leads: Mateusz Wielopolski, Post-doctoral Senior Researcher
    Team members: Tobias Eberwein

    Project description: BambooTech involves the development of a high-strength composite material, which employs renewable organic fibres such as bamboo as a resource and can be used as a reinforcement system in concrete and other structural applications. Compared to steel, BambooTech product is lighter, cheaper, renewable, CO2-binding and corrosion-free. These features make it suitable for interior and exterior structural applications.

    (2nd run)

    Meta Heat

    NTU, Dept of Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering

    Organisation: NTU, Dept of Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering
    Principal Investigators: Thomas Hongyi Xu
    Team members: Dang Minh Nguyen

    Project description: Over 50% of electronic failures are caused by thermal problems. Meta Heat addresses these problems by designing efficient heat dissipation devices that can protect sensitive electronic components from being affected by heat flux. It is the world’s first three-dimensional thermal invisibility cloak.

    (2nd run)


    NTU, Environmental Engineering

    Principal Investigators: Assoc. Prof. Federico Lauro
    Entrepreneurial Leads: Rachelle Lauro
    Team members: Trent Goldsack, Wesley Goh

    Project description: Self-contained sampling devices that will take an array of measurements in aquatic (both salt and fresh water) environments. These products will send all the macro-data via wifi/3D/iridium satellite uplink for data collection and distribution to the web-based community of subscribers. Subscribers will be able to login to a socially networked website and ‘see’ the level of pollution as reported by all networked devices.

  • 2014
    (2nd run)


    NUS, Dept of Chemisty, FOS

    Principal Investigators: Professor Sam Li Fong Yau
    Entrepreneurial Leads: Divya Jain
    Team members: Du Haijun, Lin Xuanhao, Guo Rui

    Project description: T-Cat aims to save over a million dollars a year per factory that recycles wastewater and in the process discard water that is high in organic contamination, due to lack of treatment facility for tough organics. T-cat uses the patent pending TiO2 photocatalyst for treatment of organic wastewater, like reverse osmosis (RO) concentrate, for water reclamation.

    (2nd run)

    Virus Detector

    NTU-HUJ-BGU CREATE Programme

    Principal Investigators: Prof. Robert Marks
    Entrepreneurial Leads: Low Yuen Kei Adarina, Research staff
    Team members: Prima Dewi Sinawang, Indra Susanto, Maria Regina Hartono

    Project description: An integration of screen-printed electrodes and lateral flow strips for a quantitative electrochemical detection of targeted water viruses. The lateral flow strip carries electroactive affinity nanobeads under capillary force with captured target viral components to functionalised microelectrodes, where they are immobilised and their presence enables a quantifiable electrical signal.
