An auction for the rights to use intellectual property: Right to use the technology for the production of lignocellulosic bulk thermal insulation material
Latvian State Institute of Wood Chemistry announces an auction of the intellectual property "Right to use the technology for the production of lignocellulosic bulk thermal insulation material”
Within the framework of the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) research results commercialisation project No 184.108.40.206/16/I/001/ KC-PI-2020/13 "Commercialisation of the technology for the production of lignocellulosic bulk thermal insulation material", scientists of the Latvian State Institute of Wood Chemistry (LSIWC) have developed the technology for the production of lignocellulosic bulk thermal insulation material, and are currently offering to purchase a licence for the use of this technology
Object of commercialisation: Technology for the production of lignocellulosic bulk thermal insulation material.
Developed by: LSIWC Biorefining Laboratory
Information for interested parties:
The interested party is invited to participate in the auction by making an offer for the purchase of the technology.
The successful bidder will be the bidder with the highest bid for the auctioned item.
The auction object:
Latvian State Institute of Wood Chemistry has developed two different products of loose-fill thermal insulation materials from lignocellulusic biomass suitable for use in many building constructions and is ready to sell the technology licence. We have revealed and developed the steam explosion method for conversion of raw lignocellulosics to a fiber subtrate with good thermal insulation properties. Steam explosion is the hydrothermal process where a pressurized saturated steam acts on the biomass in a closed reactor a certain time (up to 10 min) at an elevated temperature (160-250 °C). After the time exceeds the reactor is opened and the biomass is exploded to the receiver due to the rapid pressure reduction. In such a manner processed lignocellulosic material contain different fiber shapes that is suitable to be used as loose-fill thermal insulation material. Steam explosion can be implemented in the batch and continuous reactors, however with the different process parameters. In continuous system, the mechanical compression is a source of stress in addition to hydrothermal and explosion effects. Main advantages of this technology is affordable price, widely available and affordable raw materials, simple manufacturing process, and good conductivity measures.
