Alkaneutri is one of the waste water treatment technologies available for transfer by IGIB, a constituent of CSIR labs. Alkaneutre, a novel product, is a consortium of bacteria for neutralization of alkaline waste-water. At present, the alkaline waste-water is neutralized with acid which is eco-unfriendly, expensive and hazardous. Also, the generation of sodium chloride, a product of acid treatment, further pose problems in biodegradation. The process developed by IGIB completely eliminates the use of chemicals and brings down the pH from 12.0 to 7.5 within a reasonable time. Tests carried out at Coca-Cola,Dasna plant had shown reduction of pH from 11.82 to 7.26.
This technology comes from researcher Dr(Mrs) Ritakumar, a prolific inventor with 59 patents to her credit by year 2007. Parties looking for technologies can contact, Dr Ritakumar , firstname.lastname@example.org

How it works: product manufacturers pay RedesignMe to establish "RDM Challenges," through which a new product concept is presented and the site's 1,000 or so active members are asked to react to it. Beginning with an initial proposed concept, users are free to modify the current design or upload their own ideas, using any combination of comments, sketches, pictures, mood-boards, movies, prototypes or total redesigns. In exchange, they are rewarded with RDMs—RedesignMe's online currency, which is convertible into products in the online RDM Shop such as mp3-players, game consoles and gift cards. RDM Challenges can be open to all users or only a select few. Ideas generated on the site are then used as input by the manufacturer's R&D team or professional designers, who decide on the final concept. Ultimately, the companies hope, the result will be products that are better aligned with what consumers really want.

We always advocated technology diffusion except two technologies- missiles and timer bombs. Reports say assembling these timer bombs has become a cottage industry, cost less than Rs 25/ to make and there is no shortage of buyers. With terror moving to streets, there is a pressing need for innovators to come with smart solutions that detect these bombs. TePP supported one innovator Biju Varkey to improve his low cost bomb disposal robot.
Innovators taking the challenge to develop low cost bomb detection and disposal gadgets can contact email@example.com for funding under TePP.
