Artificial Intelligence technology for sustainable ridesharing in the city

Scientists at the Institute for the Investigation in Artificial Intelligence of the CSIC (IIIA-CSIC) have developed a technology for ride-sharing. The goal is allowing people to share their cars with the users who have to do the same trip, hence doing a more sustainable use of the vehicle and reducing the traffic in the cities.

Tunable temperature and measuring angle holder for film and powder samples

Researchers from the CSIC and the Catalan Institute of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (ICN2-BIST) have developed and patented a sample holder for measuring films or powder samples in a fluorimeter or a UV-Vis-NIR spectrometer in transmission or reflection modes. The holder allows controlled temperature conditions, and an adaptable measuring angle. The device is customizable to adapt to the diverse commercial instruments.

Scientists develop a device that differentiates, in a single step and without markers, tumour cells from healthy cells

A CSIC team has designed a method and a device that differentiates, in a single analysis, different cells or particles present in a fluid. The prototype has been tested, and the results have been published and featured on the cover of ACS Sensors. The system has been patented and now the scientific team is looking for companies interested in a license agreement for its commercial exploitation.

Transformation of used batteries in biocatalysts: circular and sustainable economy

A team from the Centro de Investigaciones Biológicas of the CSIC (CIB-CSIC) has developed an application for the sustainable reuse of components of dead batteries. The scientists have synthesized esters by biocatalysis, using the material obtained from the black mass of batteries and an enzyme, through a selective and clean reaction.
