A scientist from a university located in northwestern Poland specialises in immobilisation technologies and environment-friendly packaging materials. He has developed a technology for using starch and spray-drying process to produce a sorbing agent. One can use it to immobilise various bioactive substances that are in a liquid, solid or gaseous state. An immobilised substance added to the final product is then gradually released in a designated environment, in a given concentration. The innovation enables the production of a wide variety of powdery, granulated, pill or suspended-matter products.
Starch sorbent produced according to the offered technology is biodegradable, biocompatible, microbiologically clean and dispersible. It has a neutral colour, smell and taste. It can be used: as a powdery diluent of flavoured food additives, as an adsorbent of liquids and odours, or to filter water or contaminants out of raw alcohol. Therefore, the technology is of particular interest to food, alcohol and agriculture industries. Thanks to the simplicity and low costs of the production process, quick implementation of the technology on the industrial scale is possible.
The scientist would like to see his invention used commercially, therefore he is looking for partners that would like to buy or license the technology. In both cases, a partner will be responsible for implementing the technology into his production process. The scientist will lend his expertise in adapting the technology and helping to introduce it.
