Resumen:
Un instituto de investigación eslovaco ha desarrollado una nueva tecnología de eliminación de amonio liberado desde las paredes de edificios hasta el interior como resultado de la aplicación de una mezcla de hormigón con aditivo anticongelante que contiene amonio. Este método se utiliza durante la construcción de edificios nuevos y es una alternativa a los procesos actuales: demolición de estructuras y uso del sistema de calefacción del edificio para acelerar la descomposición de urea y eliminar el amonio formado mediante ventilación. El instituto busca constructoras o socios industriales con el fin de establecer acuerdos de investigación, licencia o joint venture.

Tittle:
A Slovak research institute is offering a technology for elimination of ammonium in buildings
Summary:
A Slovak research institute has developed a new technology for elimination of ammonium, which is released from building walls into interiors as a result of an application of a concrete mixture with a anti-freezing additive containing ammonium. They are ready to discuss research cooperation agreement, licensing or joint venture agreement.
Description:
The Slovak research institute was established in 1967. Their research is concentrated on intentional and spontaneous structural changes in polymers in relation to their properties. Research projects are mainly focused on modification by introduction of functional groups, grafting, cross-linking, thermal and light stabilization of polymers, on mechanism of emulsion polymerization, preparation of new polymer materials based on polymer mixtures and composites, materials for biotechnology and biomedicine and supports for liquids chromatography. New chromathographic separation and characterization techniques for complex polymer systems are being developed, as well.

The presence of ammonium in buildings could be solved by the technology presented here, which was developed by this Slovak research institute. The ammonium is formed as a result of inappropriate application of antifreeze urea-containing additive in the concrete mixture. Two procedures have been proposed as a solution in the past:
a) demolition of the constructions (parts, where urea-containing antifreeze additives have been added);
b) using the heating system of the building to speed up the urea decomposition and removal of the ammonium formed by ventilation. The alternative a) is expensive and in most cases demolition of whole building would be necessary, the alternative b) would need, besides the expenses of heating, a period of several months or even few years. The problem is effectively and much less expensively solved by the designed technology according to the patent application. The ammonium formed is chemically bound by an appropriate compound placed on an inert carrier. Both the active ingredient and its product of the reaction with ammonium are ecologically harmless.

This method should be used for new buildings during the construction period.

The institute is ready to discuss licensing, research cooperation agreement or joint venture agreement.
Licensing - the research institute is offering a license of this technology. The partners here could be the construction companies, companies from other related industries or any industrial partner, to whom this technology could be suitable.
Research cooperation agreement - the research institute offers their pool of R-Y-D capacities. The potential partner could be from industrial sector but also from academic sector.
Joint venture agreement - the institute is looking for a specific partnership from with could both engaged partners benefit. The form of cooperation is rather opened in this case - the institute offers a technical consultancy and technical training. These types of cooperation have been chosen because they are fitting todays needs of this research institute in a very best way.
Advantages and Innovations:
This kind of decomposition and elimination of the ammonium is very a clever method with a high potential for use in the future. The ammonium formed is chemically bound by an appropriate compound placed on an inert carrier. Both the active ingredient and its product of the reaction with ammonium are ecologically harmless and represent no health risk.
Stage of Development:
