TECHNOLOGY PROFILE   OFFER   ADD TO FAVOURITES

 

ABSTRACT

A Turkish company developed a method of inhibiting hazardous chemicals such as acetaldehyde, carboxyl end groups and diethylene glycol chemicals which are come out during the PET process. It prevents the formation of harmful chemicals that are released.
They are looking for license and technical cooperation agreements.

 

FULL DESCRIPTION

A Turkish company, which was established in 2016, developed a method for the hazardous chemicals which are come out during the PET process. The method is useful for inhibiting hazardous chemicals such as acetaldehyde, carboxyl end groups and diethylene glycol chemicals.
The object of the method is to prevent the formation of harmful chemicals such as acetaldehyde (AA), COOH end group content (COOH), diethylene glycol (DEG), which increase with the chemical degradation of the PET material from the raw material to the final product.

The present invention relates to a method of inhibiting acetaldehyde, carboxyl end groups and diethylene glycol chemistry when 0.2% of the Mg2B2O5 compound is added to the PET during the injection step. The object of the invention is to prevent the formation of harmful chemicals such as acetaldehyde (AA), COOH end group content (COOH), diethylene glycol (DEG), which increase with the chemical degradation of the PET material from the raw material to the final product.

The purpose of the present invention is to provide healthier pet bottles to use.

All rights related to this recently developed invention have been put under protection of a patent.

The company wants to work with any partner who is willing to work with this method or improve this method.
The company is looking for license and technical cooperation agreements.


Partner expertise sought:

- Specific area of activity of the partner: The type of the partner could be any company, researcher or university who wants to apply. The role of the partner would be partners who are willing to license the method under a license agreement. The company is also interested in technical cooperation agreements.


Advantages & innovations:

- Healthier pet bottles
- Prevents toxic chemicals
- Lower cost
- Easy application


Development Stage:

Prototype available for demonstration
