Commercialisation of green products
Our scientist and engineers are busy turning great ideas into products. We are working on several polymers made from renewable resources with applications in the medical, building and manufacturing industries. Here are some ideas that COOE scientist have helped commercialise:
- Balance Carbon was established in 2007 offering carbon, energy and sustainability management services. Now a well established Adelaide based company that has diversified into other areas and changed name to Trellis to reflect these changes.
- GeoOceans established as a marine mapping and monitoring system in late 2010 using towed underwater video. Now servicing a wider customer base as a subsidiary of the Global Energy Group.
- ChangeClimate spun off from COOE research in 2017 with a remarkable breakthrough in converting waste from making biodiesel into an epoxy resin. And what a resin it is! Not only is it using waste generated from making bio-diesel it has no phenols the main component of traditional epoxy resin, now considered to be potentially carcinogenic. This technology has a tremendous potential for replacing traditional BPA or BPS based plastics in many food containers and other products that have direct contact with humans.
COOE has a green hydraulic oil formulation that can be made from most vegetable oils, we have tested canola, mustard seed, soy bean oils. This product has great potential in the mining and agricultural industry, as hydraulic spills will not contaminate the soil. If interested in partnering with us in developing this product please contact us.
We have several projects on the research list under the supervision of some great scientists check our team.
