The University of Ghent and Caloritum have developed an industrial chemical heat pump able to recover waste heat between 75-150°C and revalorize this up to a useful heat level of over 200°C. The patented technology, developed by Christian Stevens and colleagues, can be implemented in production processes ranging from petro- and chemical industry to food production and power generation.
InfinityPV has developed InfinityS: a polymer solar cell based infinitely long 'busbarless' foil produced in large scale that makes light harvesting cost-and energy-efficient possible at any scale. InfinityS is user-friendly, flexible and highly adaptable and can thus be used as a standalone installation in urban areas.
The National Institute of Chemistry, Slovenia, has developed catalysts that enable efficient conversion of renewably- and alternatively-sourced methane and carbon dioxide into syngas. The patented innovation, delevoped by Ilja Gasan Osojnik Črnivec and Petar Djinović, provides a sustainable feedstock platform for existing added value chains in the pharmaceutical industry and synfuel sector, as well as for the production of commodity chemicals.
