Resumen:
Una empresa húngara busca socios con el fin de desarrollar nuevas tecnologías o módulos de súper-refrigeración de alimentos a temperaturas desde -1 hasta -5º C. Estas tecnologías se emplearán en frigoríficos domésticos para alargar el tiempo de conservación de los alimentos. Los enfoques posibles pueden basarse en tecnologías de refrigeración controladas por precisión, nuevos módulos de súper-refrigeración, uso de nuevos materiales y adaptación de sistemas de súper-refrigeración procedentes del sector de tecnologías médicas. La empresa busca socios que dispongan de una tecnología totalmente desarrollada para establecer acuerdos de licencia o socios que ofrezcan un prototipo para colaborar en el desarrollo.

Tittle:
Super-cooling technology for domestic refrigerator/freezer
Summary:
A multinational partner company of a Hungarian Technology Transfer company seeks partners to develop novel cooling technologies or modules to enable super-cooling of food to temperatures of -1 to -5C. The technologies will be used in domestic refrigeration systems to lengthen the preservation time of foods. The company therefore seeks partners with fully developed technology for licensing the technology or partners who have working prototype for collaboration in joint development.
Description:
In conventional freezing of foods, the rupturing of cells caused by expansion of ice crystals can result in water loss when the product is thawed. Storage of products within a freezer can also result in freezer burn. Super-cooling is the cooling of a liquid below its freezing point without it becoming solid. Super-cooling may provide benefits in domestic refrigeration systems to provide longer term food preservation without loss of quality when the food is thawed.

A multinational partner company of a Hungarian Technology Transfer company invites proposals from companies (large or small and medium enterprises), inventors or researchers with concept or prototype solutions that allow super-cooling within a refrigerator.

Possible approaches could be based on precision controlled cooling technologies, novel modules for super-cooling, usage of new materials and the adaptation of super-cooling systems from medical technology sector.

Approaches that cannot be accommodated within the standard dimension of refrigerators, or that adversely impact food preservation quality such as taste, colour or spoilage are not of interest.

The company seeks fully developed technologies in this field with the aim of licensing the chosen technology or technologies with working prototype that can lead to joint development cooperation that will end up in manufacturing the product.
Technical Specification or Expertise Sought:
The end product should:

- Deliver super-cooling of food such as meat and fish to temperatures of between -1 to -5C

- Deliver even cooling of products with typical weight of 50-500g and thicknesses of 1-5cm

- Reduce the water loss of the product after thawing by at least 20% compared to standard fast freezing technologies.

- Be made from materials considered food grade and able to be in contact with foodstuffs

Partner sought

Type and Role of Partner Sought:
It is preferred to work with partners that have existing technologies or approaches that can be applied to this specific application. Technological solutions are welcome either from companies (large or small and medium enterprises), either from inventors or researchers.

Collaboration can involve technology licensing, product sourcing, proof of concept leading to joint development agreements and assistance with scale-up to manufacturing. Preference will be given to technologies or approaches that currently have working prototypes that can undergo feasibility, validation or proof of concept over a 3-6 month period.
