Resumen:
Una pyme británica busca productores de biodiésel para licenciar la IP o establecer un acuerdo de joint venture que permita producir dos productos económicos a partir de su proceso existente. Uno de estos productos es aceite desmoldeante para el sector de fabricación de hormigón (disponible en el mercado) y el otro producto es un aceite lubricante de cadena para los sectores ganadero y forestal (en fase de desarrollo). Estos productos abren nuevas posibilidades de mercado, ofrecen mejores márgenes que el biodiésel y utilizan un subproducto obtenido de procesos existentes.

Details

Tittle:
Biodiesel producers are offered technology to produce two alternative products
Summary:
A UK SME is seeking biodiesel producers to either license IP or undertake a joint venture which will enable them to produce 2 economically attractive products from their existing process. One is a mould release oil for the concrete manufacturing sector (commercialised), the other is chain lubricating oil for farm and forestry sectors (under development). These products open new markets and offer better margins than biodiesel, and utilise a byproduct of the existing process.
Description:
This offer is from a UK SME. The owner already runs another profitable business in the energy sector. The offer concerns two end products, chain lubricating oil (such as used in chainsaws and other machinery), and concrete mould release oil. The proposition is to use a byproduct of another manufacturing process (biodiesel) to make these.
Biodiesel is often manufactured from UCO (used cooking oil). The byproduct of this process is glycerol and this can be used to manufacture both alternative products under a patented process.
Concrete mould release oil is used in the manufacture of concrete components. The concrete mould release oil made by this process has a natural ingredient from the fatty acids in cooking oil that forms a reaction with the calcium in the cement which forms a reactive barrier. The process for the manufacture of the mould release oil is fully commercialised and available for license (with technical support and backup). The company is seeking a partner to license IP for production of the mould release oil. The market is larger at 100m litres annually in Europe
Chain lubricating oil is used to lubricate chains in chain saws and other agricultural machinery. It is normally made from raw vegetable oil. The market in Europe for chain oil is 40m litres annually in Europe. There are no specialist manufacturers. It accounts for a small percentage of total revenue for existing manufacturers. The process for manufacture of this alternative chain oil has some further development work to be done, and therefore joint development with a partner with appropriate expertise is required to collaborate in a joint venture.
Advantages and Innovations:
Both types of oil, manufactured from recycled UCO, present the opportunity of a product which is environmentally friendly, cheaper than the competition, and current manufacturers regard it as a low priority. Both oils utilise a byproduct which otherwise goes to waste.
Stage of Development:
Field tested/evaluated
IPs:
Patent(s) applied for but not yet granted
CommeR Statunts Regarding IPR Status:
European Patent application on both products.
