• Improved solar panel recycling

    Over the next decade the number of unserviceable photovoltaic solar panels will increase exponentially. More efficient methods designed to separate the many materials that make up a panel must be developed so that they do not end up discarded in[...]

  • Radial discharge plasma for the treatment of contaminated liquids

    Removal of harmful recalcitrant organic substances (anthropogenic or otherwise) from water and aqueous matrices like leachate is indispensable for ensuring public health and safety, and for environmental protection. The choice of technology for contaminants removal is case specific and often[...]

  • Raw material recovery from solar panels

    Over the next decade, the number of unserviceable photovoltaic solar panels will increase dramatically, reasonably tens of millions only in Italy. How can we dispose of the dismissed solar panels and recover their most precious raw materials? This patent has[...]

  • Smart skin solar screen

    This solar shading system can improve the energy efficiency of buildings by controlling the amount of solar radiation that hits vertical surfaces, with automated panel positioning, based on internal and external temperature as well as local illumination values. Modular, scalable[...]

  • Storage and conversion of electricity

    In the future, power plants will generate electricity from mixed renewable sources. It will therefore necessary to stock energy efficiently when the production of solar or wind power exceeds the demand. This patent describes an efficient, cost effective and easy[...]

  • Connector for timber walls

    This patented anchoring system is ideally used in timber construction. Its special shape and material are ideal to connect wood walls or to anchor them to concrete foundations, even in high seismic risk areas. This invention is an X-shaped steel[...]
