Geothermal energy: Dynamic measurement of the fluid temperature in ground coupled heat exchangers based on an autonomous wireless sensor

What we offer:
Researchers from Universitat de València and Universidad Politécnica de Valencia, have designed a new method and device to determine the dynamic measurement of the fluid temperature in a ground coupled heat exchanger, facilitating the use of geological layers with better thermal conductivity, reducing costs of the installations and execution time of the TRT method in comparison to the conventional TRT methods.

The new invention is based on the use of autonomous wireless sensors, which facilitate to determine the variations of thermal conductivity along the length of the heat exchanger. The new method and device allow to improve the sizing of the ground coupled heat exchangers, avoiding extra costs in the installation.

What we are looking for:
Industrial partner interested in licence and/or research agreement.

Wastewater treatment: Nitrogen removal control system based on low-cost sensors

What we offer:
Researchers from the Universitat de València and the Universitat Politècnica de València have developed a control system based on fuzzy logic for continuous WWTPs with biological nitrogen removal using low-cost sensors such as pH and ORP sensors. The control system is composed of two independent controllers for nitrification and denitrification processes.

This control system allows optimization of the activated sludge process since maintains effluent nitrogen concentration under limit values with minimum energy consumption. Moreover, this technology involves lower initial investment and lower maintenance and operational costs for the control system, by replacing commonly used ammonium and nitrate sensors with low cost sensors. Besides, low cost sensors have the additional advantage of their easy usage and lower time response.

Wastewater treatment: Device for activated sludge models calibration (BioCalibra)

What we offer:
Researchers from the Universitat de València and the Universitat Politècnica de València, have developed an automated calibration device that allows the calculation of the kinetic and stoichiometric parameters for the most accepted models for activated sludge processes. BioCalibra performs all necessary assays for calibration, as well as numerous experiments designed for the performance evaluation of the biological process as could be: determination of biodegradability of waste water, verification of the existence of toxic compounds, determination of possible interferences, or determination of potential impacts on treatment process. The use of this new device allows improving the calibration process, so reducing time and manpower necessary for this task. BioCalibra performs both the experimental tasks and the subsequent determination of calibration parameters for the mathematical models.

Pollution control: Versatile and cheap passive sampler for multiple VOCs determination

What we offer:
Researchers from University of Valencia have developed a fast, easy and versatile monitoring protocol for organic contaminants in air, based on the development of a new passive sampler named VERAM. This passive sampling device consists of a lay-flat low-density polyehytelene membrane filled with solid phases. Retained pollutants are directly determined by gas chromatography (GC) using head space injection (HS) after heating the sampling device. The great advantages include the absence of sample handling, the reduction of analysis time and the avoidance of the use of solvents. A mixture of different solid phases allows sample all the possible pollutants in the air or it is possible to select appropriated solid phases for a specific sampling of compounds as a function of their physical-chemical properties.

Pollution control: Sample collection devices of atmospheric pollutants with high performance

What we offer:
Researchers at the University of Valencia have developed a novel procedure for the synthesis of a new solid phase for the retention of VOCs, which allows effective and efficient collection of VOCs and recovery of the analytes for further analysis. This procedure is simple, it works in a short period of time and is more economic compared to known processes. The new microporous hybrid compound (based on silica and CDs), can be used as solid phase or to fill up sample collection devices of VOCs. Retention of contaminants has less dependence of environmental conditions (temperature and/or humidity) than commercial sample collection devices. Recoveries obtained make them suitable for the exposure evaluation to these contaminants in industrial fields. This invention provides an improved alternative to commercial sample collection devices present in the prior art as solid phases using silica gel or activated carbon.
