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.
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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
