Resumen:
Una pyme española especializada en el desarrollo, fabricación y venta de cerámicas técnicas avanzadas para los sectores industrial y biomédico busca socios industriales interesados en aplicar dos nuevos materiales inorgánicos y ecológicos en la prevención de la legionella en sistemas de refrigeración evaporativa (torres de refrigeración, condensadores evaporativos, etc.), sistemas de agua caliente y fría, spas, etc. Los materiales son compatibles con los sistemas actuales de control y prevención basados en cloro, pero también pueden utilizarse por separado porque presentan una eficacia extraordinaria contra la legionella. La empresa busca socios con el fin de establecer acuerdos de licencia.

Details

Tittle:
Inorganic products for inhibiting or controlling the growth of legionellae.
Summary:
A Spanish SME dedicated to the development, manufacturing and selling of advanced technical ceramic materials and products for the industrial and biomedical fields, is seeking industrial partners interested in applying two novel inorganic and environmentally friendly materials in the prevention of legionella bacteria in water systems such as evaporative cooling systems (cooling towers, evaporative condensers, etc.), hot and cold water systems, spa pools, etc. License agreements are sought.
Description:
A Spanish company working in the development, manufacturing and selling of advanced technical ceramic materials and products for the industrial and biomedical fields, has developed inorganic products for inhibiting or controlling the growth of legionellae.
Legionella bacteria - the cause of Legionnaires´ disease - are classified as a public health risk of environmental origin. Legionnaires´ disease is normally contracted by inhaling small droplets of water (aerosols), suspended in air, containing the bacteria. One of the reasons these bacteria are so dangerous is that they reproduce rapidly given the right conditions (water temperature between 20-45 °C, storage and/or re-circulation of water, deposits that can support bacterial growth, etc.). These conditions are frequently found in many water systems and in order to control these risks, disinfection systems based on chlorine, monochloramine and copper and silver ions are commonly used. However these materials are harmful for workers and the environment.
The novel materials developed by the Spanish company are inorganic and environmentally friendly, and can be used in the prevention of Legionella bacteria in water systems such as evaporative cooling systems (cooling towers, evaporative condensers, etc.), hot and cold water systems, spa pools, etc.
These materials are compatible with the current chlorination-based prevention and control systems (gold standard) but in addition they can be used alone since they feature an extraordinary efficacy against Legionellae on their own.
The company is seeking industrial partners interested in the application of these novel materials in water systems under license agreements.
Advantages and Innovations:
The main assets of the described inorganic products are:
· Low cost
· High efficacy: 99,9999% of Legionella bacteria reduction
· Non-toxic for humans or the environment
· Long-lasting biocidal effect
· Not corrosive for the equipment
Stage of Development:
Available for demonstration
IPs:
Patents granted
CommeR Statunts Regarding IPR Status:
Patents granted in Spain
