Deisi Altmajer´s work on "Formulaciones detergentes biodegradables: ensayos de lavado" (Biodegradable detergent formulations: wash tests) proposes an experimental device which determines the effectiveness of biodegradable detergents for solid surfaces and in the no deterioration of dishes.
For that reason, the cleaning company of Granada BMI has been involved all these years los in the tests carried out in the Department of Chemical Engineering of the UGR [http://www.ugr.es], under the supervision of teachers Encarnación Jurado Alameda, Vicente Bravo Rodríguez and Josefa Núñez Olea.
The results of the thesis point out that the device, called BSF (Wash-Substratum-Flow), develops a system to compare the effectiveness of different detergents for greasy dirt, which is being patented at the moment. On that base, we can obtain cleaning products with biodegradable tensoactives from natural greasy sources, oils and carbohydrates.
Ecology and effectiveness
Therefore, “they are biodegradable detergents, with low environment impact, and operate in moderate process conditions: low temperatures, low concentrations, with low PHs”, the author points out. Besides this ecological component, they will maintain their effectiveness, speed and wash conditions. They will be coloured for a safer use, avoiding cases og involuntary intake on the part of the consumer.
“They will be ecological and, at the same time, they will clean better. To develop it, parametres like client subjectivity will be taken into account”, Rafael Bailón Moreno, of BMI, points out. This company and the UGR intend to make progress in this research line for the development of industrial dish soaps, with surveys to users, normally innkeepers, by delivery of a sample of the product.

Researchers from the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) at the University of Waterloo led the development of a new extensible wiring technique capable of controlling superconducting quantum bits, representing a significant step towards to the realization of a scalable quantum computer.
"The quantum socket is a wiring method that uses three-dimensional wires based on spring-loaded pins to address individual qubits," said Jeremy Béjanin, a PhD...
In a paper in Scientific Reports, a research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute describes a novel light-activated phenomenon that could become the basis for applications as diverse as microscopic robotic grippers and more efficient solar cells.
A research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) has developed a revolutionary, light-activated semiconductor nanocomposite material that can be used...
By forcefully embedding two silicon atoms in a diamond matrix, Sandia researchers have demonstrated for the first time on a single chip all the components needed to create a quantum bridge to link quantum computers together.
"People have already built small quantum computers," says Sandia researcher Ryan Camacho. "Maybe the first useful one won't be a single giant quantum computer...
COMPAMED has become the leading international marketplace for suppliers of medical manufacturing. The trade fair, which takes place every November and is co-located to MEDICA in Dusseldorf, has been steadily growing over the past years and shows that medical technology remains a rapidly growing market.
In 2016, the joint pavilion by the IVAM Microtechnology Network, the Product Market “High-tech for Medical Devices”, will be located in Hall 8a again and will...
