Sensors for Air Quality Monitoring and Air Quality Solutions
Summary:
A Belgian multinational active in consumer goods is looking for sensors to accurately monitor home or office air quality across a range of pollutants, preferably in combination with machine learning algorithms to make meaningful recommendations on corrective actions to optimize air quality. Further, the company is looking for new product solutions for air quality management. Licence or technical cooperation agreements are sought with industrial partners.
Description:
Rapid urbanization, increases in automobile ownership, increased energy generation and other factors are all resulting in increasingly poor outside air quality for a growing fraction of the world´s population. As homes and offices get tighter and utilize fewer air exchanges to save energy, internal air quality is also negatively impacted. Many countries are experiencing significant increases in the percentage of population experiencing severe allergies or asthma that are aggravated by poor air quality. Likewise, as populations age, an increasing number of elderly suffer from various respiratory illnesses that are also aggravated by poor air quality.

A growing number of companies are launching air quality monitoring devices aimed to the home consumer, with the stated intent of helping them manage their air quality. Many of these home sensors suffer from poor accuracy, inability to distinguish between particle types (e.g., dust, pollen, pet dander, etc.), and the lack of a mechanism to take corrective action. Typical "air care" products available for corrective action focus on bulk removal particles via HEPA (high-efficiency particulate arresting) or other filters, as well as the removal and/or cover up of malodors. Solutions are inefficient and sometimes ineffective.

With the aim to overcome these disadvantages, this Belgian multinational active in consumer goods is looking for a combined set of solutions:

· Consumer focused sensors for accurate monitoring of home or office air quality across a range of pollutants of interest, in combination with machine learning algorithms to make meaningful recommendations on corrective action to optimize air quality.
· New product solutions for air quality management.

The company is looking for collaboration with industrial partners able to provide the above-mentioned solutions enabling an effective air quality monitoring and measurement, coupled to learning algorithms for processing data from sensors.

The purpose would be setting up a long lasting cooperation via technical collaboration or licence agreement, allowing the large account to comply with its internal strategy and for the potential partner to interact in a systematic way with the large account so as to have immediate access to forthcoming similar requests
Technical Specification or Expertise Sought:
The company is looking for:

· Partners with new sensors or sensor packages for broad and meaningful air quality measurement (e.g., formaldehyde and other specific volatile organic compounds (VOCs), odors, allergens, biologicals, Particulate Matter 2.5 micrometers or less (PM2.5) in private residences, group living homes, office buildings, and other public gathering spaces.

· Sensors that can accurately monitor key components of indoor air per World Health Organization guidelines at relevant levels in real time.

· Machine learning algorithms for processing data from sensors to provide meaningful information and recommendations to non-expert end-users on how to optimize air quality in real time.

· Product solutions for optimizing air quality, including removal of unwanted materials from air and introduction of beneficial agents to air, in real time. These solutions will ideally contain at least one consumable component.

The company NOT interested in:

· directly making and selling sensors.
· Air quality solutions that are applicable exclusively in Rx (reception) and heavily regulated fields.

Please note that only non-confidential information describing the method, current use and IP can be accepted for review.
