Tittle:
Respirometry instrument for measuring waste biodegradability and monitoring food fermentation
Summary:
A Slovenian SME has developed a solid and/or liquid state respirometry instrument for measuring biodegradability of different types of waste and monitoring of food fermentation. Main instrument advantages are: high temperature biodegradability and mass flow controllers for high precision measurements. The SME is looking for partners that would use and co-develop the respirometry instrument through commercial agreement with technical assistance, research cooperation or joint venture agreement.
Description:
A Slovenian SME developed a solid and/or liquid state respirometry instrument used for measuring biodegradability of different types of waste (plastics, organic waste, soil, compost) and monitoring of food fermentation. The respirometry instrument can be used for aerobic and anaerobic research purposes of small and medium scale. Main advantage of the presented instrument in compared to other available on the market are: high temperature biodegradability (0 - 60°C), 12 or more measuring channels, mass flow controllers for precise setting and measurement of gas flow in each reactor.

The developed respirometry instrument system is used for conducting diagnostic tests, measuring and monitoring the following:

· Bio-reactions in aerobic and anaerobic processes
· Plastic degradation at high temperature
· Monitors the activity in biological wastewater treatment plants
· Analyses decomposition efficiency of different types of material in a wastewater treatment plant
· Decomposition of waste, biodegradation
· Microorganism activity (pharmacy, production of medicines)
· Biochemical oxygen demand (BOD) and toxicity
· Respirometry (activity) of small animals
· Biological activity of organisms (concentration of carbon dioxide in the expired air)
· Compost maturity
· For use in food production (fermentation activity in wine production and milk industry

Technical features of the respirometry instrument:

· 6, 12 or 24 measuring reactor channels,
· temperature from 5 to 70ºC+/-0,5ºC,
· infrared (IR) CO2 sensor,
· electrochemical or paramagnetic O2 sensor,
· automatic humidification,
· aerobic or anaerobic bio-process measurement,
· automatic leak detection.

The Slovenian SME is looking for partners that would use the respirometry instrument and use the Sloveninan SMEs help in adapting the instrument to specific filed needs through commercial agreement with technical assistance. The SME is also looking for partners that would cooperate at broadening the applicability of the respirometer instrument in the field of polymer biodegradability, bioplastic, waste waters, ecology, and other solid -Y- liquid materials through research cooperation agreement and joint venture agreement.
