Indian Innovator Sampath kumar seeks donation on Kickstarter for a research project in Mississippi state university aimed at improving water condition in lakes.

Nualgi is a patented nano-scale nutrient formula in the size range of 5-100 nanometers. At this scale, elements react differently with each other, remain suspended longer, disperse easily across the water column, and are therefore “bio-available” to marine organisms.The liquid additive contains 12 essential nutrients in a nano silica base that acts as a nutrient and a carrier. These nutrients are specifically chosen to stimulate diatom growth in the water column.
Diatoms (micro algae) produce 30-50% of food in aquatic ecosystems.
They release O2 and consume CO2, dramatically increasing dissolved oxygen levels. This helps aerobic bacteria break down organic matter (pollution) and Diatoms also happen to be the favorite food for Zooplankton. In turn Zooplankton are the primary food for fish, crustaceans, and other organisms. 
By boosting Diatoms, Nualgi empowers the natural food chain at the source!
The product and process was invented by Sampath Kumar in India and supported under TePP.

Now Nulgi America is planning to carry out experiments in Mississippi state university to review Nualgi’s safety and effectiveness at reducing water pollution to improve water conditions in a commercial aquaculture setting.
Donate today.

Patent on ` “Digital Controlled Precise Dispensing Valve for Liquids under Gravity Flow”' with product tehnology from Satish Pathak available for license globally

Innovator Satish Pathak's patent “digital controlled precise dispensing valve for liquids under gravity flow” overcomes all limitations of today’s two-stage flow control technology giving following advantages:
1. Eliminates need of two-stage flow and need of two valves by using only one single valve.
2. The new concept of only one single maximum flow-rate and several dispensing packets of varied sizes stretches the range of liquid dispensing target quantities, making it highly versatile for small, medium and large quantities. Hence, it’s a substitute for 3 to 4 pairs of valves.
3. The smallest packet measures fraction of gram that becomes “Least-Count” of the valve, a all new property assigned to valve. This thrashes out concept of % accuracy, delivering any quantity in specified wide range at par with Least-Count! This further saves cumulative losses observed in % accuracy.
4. Less variety of valve sizes is required as one valve-type can handle varied viscosity materials.
5. The factors like maintaining header level are redundant as the new concept automatically compensates the changes in header level and ambient temperature too.
6. Made of SS316 and Teflon, makes it suitable for many industry sectors like Oil and Petroleum, Pharmaceutical, Flavour & Fragrance, Paint & Resins, Polymer, Food & Beverages, Biotechnology, Textile, Ink, Dairy, Leather, Pesticides and many more. The applications can also be found in irrigation, animal farming etc.

Stagnant Manufacturing: Governance and Policy Slack: E Book by IKF (IRIS Knowledge Foundation), Mumbai, India jointly with Forum for Global Knowledge Sharing.

There is optimism in the air with `Make-In-India' campaign and in these eSSays analysts focus on the issues. 
The first essay by Aradhna Aggarwal deals with the decline of manufacturing in all its aspects, including employment, inter-state differences and technological change. The next essay deals with the main cause of decline, namely, poor investment climate. Biswanath Goldar advocates the creation of a large number of industrial jobs through rapid growth of the manufacturing sector. Arup Mitra argues that growth alone is not sufficient to achieve major improvements in economic and social well being of the poorer sections. Vinish Kathuria emphasises the importance of the informal sector and argues that for both manufacturing and services the informal sector has been the major employer. Kalirajan and Nguyen discuss the huge potential in exporting environmentally friendly goods for which there is a huge global demand.Finally Bino Paul analyses wages and productivity relationships.

The compilation in the form of E Book (PDF) can be downloaded free (after registration) with Forum for Global Knowledge Sharing

Carrier Ethernet Switch Router: Big ticket Technology Transfer from IITB

The biggest technology transfer from IITB is 
for Carrier Ethernet Switch Router licensed to ECIL, Hyderabad.

A first hand account of this technology development is narrated by innovator Prof Ashwin Gumaste.
 .. we proposed the framework of Omnipresent Ethernet (OE for short), in 2009. The conceptual idea behind OE was to collapse multiple networking layers into a single layer, be backward compatible with existing technologies, make a strong impact on CAPEX and OPEX, and be able to support carrier-class services that generate revenue (essentially be deterministic). In OE, we took advantage of existing patterns in the Internet connection graph and manipulated such interconnection to meet our goal of end-to-end carrier-class services on a single layer. We observed that irrespective of the physical topology, a network within the Internet could be abstracted to a tree shaped structure. Using this interconnection hierarchy, along with the well-known concept of binary routing and source routing, we were able to convert any network to a binary tree or graph by adding “dummy” nodes. 
To prove that OE worked, we published a post-deadline paper at OFC 2009, showcasing an OE experiment in the lab. This paper was very well accepted by academia and industry. The technology was first displayed in parts to the international audience through journal and conference articles that were used to vet the theoretical framework. Subsequently, prototypes were built using off-the-shelf equipment  to demonstrate the working of the technology. These were primarily coded by engineers at IIT Bombay. On successful demonstration of the prototypes, an effort was made to build our own PCB that could lead to a  series of commercial products. Three teams were formed that focused on the hardware, software, and the PCB. The hardware team was responsible for the RTL and ASICs, the software team for the network management system, and the PCB team for the PCBs, the testing, and mechanicals of the board. 5 versions of the hardware code exist – the final version, which has now become the backbone of the commercial router manufactured by ECIL, is close to 100,000 lines of RTL code.

Europe’s best clean-tech innovation of 2014

Climate-KIC, the EU’s main climate innovation initiative, has announced that Dutch start-up aQysta has been named Europe’s most innovative clean-tech venture by a jury of esteemed entrepreneurs, financiers and business people in its Europe-wide Venture Competition. aQysta will receive €40,000 worth of investment, access to business tutoring and media support to further develop its hydro-powered floating irrigation system that can increase crop yield up to 5 times and replace diesel-powered systems.
A prototype of aQysta’s pump in action in Nepal
aQysta’s product is designed as a sustainable, low-maintenance, low-cost irrigation pump for rural communities. aQysta’s pumps do not require any external source of energy like fossil fuels or electricity to operate and can be assembled locally – also in developing countries.
Although the Barsha pump (Nepalese for "rain pump") is a new product, it's based on a very old design – it has its origins in ancient Egypt.
The pump itself is essentially a water wheel on a floating platform, that's moored in a nearby flowing river. The moving water rotates the wheel, that in turn utilizes a spiral mechanism to compress air. That air drives water through an attached hose and up to the fields.
Energy-saving Nordic Power Converters from Denmark took second place with €20,000. The audience award went to UK-based Reduse’s revolutionary ‘unprinting’ system that lets you reuse office paper several times before it gets recycled. Reduse picked up the third prize of €5,000.
The competition was held as part of Climate-KIC’s annual Festival of Innovation which took place in Valencia, Spain this year. The competition showcases and rewards the innovation and enterprise happening on the European climate change scene. The 18 finalists were drawn from the winners of national competitions hosted across Climate-KIC’s 12 European hubs.

Pepsico seeks technologies for `(agriculture) Waste to Worth'

To increase the sustainability and energy efficiency of food processing, PepsiCo is interested in opportunities for extracting value from all food manufacturing by-products. Currently, this material is typically dehydrated and sold as low cost animal feed. PepsiCo is interested in alternative uses for by-products such as potato peels and starch, oat hulls, corn bran, coconut husks, and fruit peel.

Two categories of suggestions are of interest:
  • Processing methods to transform or extract higher value products that could be used by PepsiCo within their own processing operations or sold as food or feed ingredients (e.g. ferulic acid from corn bran, powdered orange peel)
  • Companies interested in these materials for further processing

Suggestions of interest will include:
  1. A description of the processing technology and equipment required
  2. An estimation of the volume of material that can be processed per year
  3. Manufacturers with interest in extracting or purchasing higher value products from specific by-products
  4. An indication of the market size and value for the ingredient or feedstock
