An Israeli chemical company is seeking an effective screening methodology for biodegradability of polymers in soil to precede a 2-years biodegradation test in close-to-real soil conditions. Identified technologies that meet the basic criteria (see description section) will receive funding to mature the technology if required, or will be considered for utilizing the services offered. Possible partnerships would be through a research, services or commercial agreement with technical assistance.
An Israeli chemical company is seeking an effective screening methodology for biodegradability of polymers in soil to precede a 2-years biodegradation test in close-to-real soil conditions.
Polymers biodegradation in the soil is affected by multiple factors with intricate co-dependencies: the soil type, the biome of a specific soil sample, geographical location, temperature, moisture, and other factors. Ultimately, biodegradation can only be ascertained in a full long-term test in as real conditions as possible. They are aiming at high biodegradation rates of 90%, or more, in soil over a period of 2 years at 25°C.
For practical reasons, they are looking for an accelerated screening test to quickly select the most promising polymers before commencing a full-length biodegradation test. The accelerated test should take into account the micro-organisms activity, the soil medium, the bacteria culture used for the tests, additives that may be used to accelerate the test, and any other factor that may affect the result and make it meaningful, with the ultimate goal of reliably correlating the accelerated test result to the full 2-years test.
Identified technologies that meet our basic criteria (see description section) will receive funding to mature the technology if required, or will be considered for utilizing the services offered.
- Type of partner sought: The Israeli company is seeking collaboration with analytical laboratories, pilot facilities and high level R&D teams that offer testing services for biodegradation tests (see description section) or are able to perform the required test with little modification.
- Specific area of activity of the partner: Preferred collaboration type(s) could be achieved through a research cooperation agreement, services agreement, or a commercial agreement with technical assistance; and they are are:
• Funded development of the selected screening methodologies
• Collaboration with the Israeli company's Specialty Fertilizers unit
• Utilizing of service
The Israeli company offers full funding for selected technologies towards maturing them.
Analytical laboratories, pilot facilities and high level R&D teams will be available to partner.
