A Spanish technological centre is preparing a project proposal for JTI-CS2-2019-CFP10-SYS-01-21: grey water container with reduced biofilm growth. The proposal will be based in the application of combined anti-stick/biocide coatings onto plastic materials which will prevent biofilm growth in plastic grey water containers. The sought partners should be large companies producing plastic containers.
A Spanish company, a non-profit private technological centre, has a large trajectory in international cooperation. The centre has coordinated 19 out of the 35 European projects in which they have been involved from FP6 to Horizon 2020 including LIFE and ECO-Innovation programs. The main RTD fields where the company develops its activities are nanotechnology, new materials and advanced-environment technologies.
One of the core expertises of the centre is the development and production of anti-stick coatings for different substrates. They have developed commercial technology for this purpose which has been applied onto different substrates such as metals, plastics, ceramics and which owns easy to clean properties and antistick properties for different applications such as marine fouling, food residues, wastes in waste water treatment. In addition, this centre has developed coatings including nano-additives own developed with antibacterial properties which have successfully demonstrated the inhibition of several microorganism. In this way, the centre will propose a solution combining both effects which will be applied to a storage container for grey water.
The partner sought should work in the design, selection of the material and production of the plastic container which should be a thermoplastic material. Optionally, this company could work also in the production of the thermoplastic composite with antimicrobial additives.
The technological centre is looking for large companies producers of plastic or water containers.
