Waste to Wealth: A New Composite

Awareness towards enviromental impact had stimulated the interest for converting polystyrene from waste materials into value added-products so called from 'waste to wealth'. Recycling is one of the common and easy process for waste management. However, polystyrene foams have recycling limitations because it contains flame retardant material. In this invention, we overcome this problem by using a new technique of recycling whereby converting the waste polystyrene to a new resin. After extensive studies, the new resin applied as matrix material reinforces with oil palm empty fruit bunch (EFB) fiber to produce new composite materials. Excellent adhesion between the polystyrene resin and the EFB fiber had exhibit promising results on tensile, flexural and impact properties. In addition, the new composite materials are low weight, low water uptake and customizable as can be applied in furniture.

ViscoLigno: A 4-in-1 solution for drillers

The formulation of drilling mud is one of the most important aspects in drilling engineering. This is because the drilling muds are capable of lubricating and cooling the drill bit and drill string as well as carrying cuttings out of the borehole. All of these funtions require appropriate viscosity of drilling muds to facilitate pumping, circulate the cuttings and transfer them to the surface. Apart from that, adequate gelling property (gel strength) of the drilling muds is also required to prevent drill cuttings from settling down at the bit. Noteworthy, some of the chemicals or additives commonly used as a drilling mud gelling and viscosifying agents are carboxymethyl cellulose (CMC), xanthane and guar gum. However, these commercial drilling additives are subjected to thermal and biological degradation at temperature above approximately 120C. ViscoLigno has been formulated from oil palm lignocellulosic waste to overcome the obove shortcoming especially for deeper hydrocarbon wells. The rheological performances of the product as a drilling mud multi-functional agent showed that, ViscoLigno gave good gelling and viscocity building abilities at low dosage of 0.5 % w/w. ViscoLigno also can stand high temperature (200C which is equivalents to about 10 km depth) as a drilling mud gelling and viscosifying agent without the addition of other chemical. Moreover, this product capable of maintaining the pH of drilling mud at desired pH range of 8-10 at various temperatures without the use of pH controls agents; and not to mention that ViscoLigno is also able to act as a corrosion retardant agent for drill string and subsurface drilling equipments. These will definitely minimize the use of extra chemical while drilling, which will directly reduce the enviromental risk and at the same time reduce the cost of drilling operations.

UV sensor based on Titanium dioxide (TiO)natotubes

The ultraviolet spectrum has both beneficial and damaging effects to humans. High ultraviolet (UV) intensity areas can be found in laboratories, hospitals and industries where UV instruments are used. People who are exposed to high doses of UV light are at risk due to the mutagenic effect of UV. UV sensor which is able to detect and provide fast information about leakage of UV light is an essential working tool for these people. These are various types of UV light sensors in the market. UV sensors are commonly fabricated based on semiconductor compounds such as GaP, AIGaN and SiC. The raw materials for these compounds are expensive and techniques used to grow the compounds are complicated.

ULC Agro-fibre Modular Septic Tank

Malaysia's most common form of sewerage system is the invidual septic tank (IST). There are an estimated 1.2 million premise with individual septic tanks in the country. An IST comprises two chambers connected in series. In the first chamber, solids from the incoming sewage settle forming a "sludge", while greases and oils float to the surface forming a "scum" layer. Effluent from between the scum and sludge layers then passes into the second chamber where further sedimentation occurs. Presently, prefabricated ISTs are made from fibreglass, a mixture of glass fibre and unsaturated polYester. Currently the production cost is about RM800 with the price increasing with the increase in oil palm industry are produced in large quantities in Malaysia, approximately more than 10 millions tonnes per annum. Subtituting the glass fibres with natural fibres reduces the cost to RM400.

TYPHIDOT

Typhoid fever remains as a public health problem in many developing countries. There is a need for an alternative test for typhoid that is rapid, sensitive, specific and cost-effective. A novel approach to outer membrane studies by Prof Asma Ismail and her research team has paved the way for the discovery of 50kDa, a specific outer membrane protein for S. typhi. The specific protein was used to developed a rapid dot EIA test for typhoid called TYPHIDOTTM that detects for the presence of specific IgM and IgG to the 50 kD antigen. The test became a breakthrough in typhoid diagnosis since 1896 and could produce results within an hour compared to 2-5 days via the conventional culture method and 2 weeks via the serologiccal Widal test.

PALMCEL - A Natural Biopolymeric Paper Strenght Reinforcing Agent

Papermaking in Malaysia is essentially based on recycled fibers. One of the major issues faced by mills using recyled fibers is the diminishing strenght of papers with recycling. It is the object of this invention to introduce a new class of biodegradable chemicals derived from locally naturally occurring material (the oil palm residues), hence aptly named Palmcel, which can augment both the dry and wet strenght of papers. Artificial neural networks, in particular the Radial Basis Function Network (RBFN) has been used for process optimization. For a successful operation, the strenght additive has to be water soluble to allow maximum absorption onto the cellulose fibers and contain functional groups that are capable to bond the fibers thereby increasing the paper strenght, both of which are characteristics of Palmcel. Palcel, can be used in various ways. Firstly, by addition at the papermaking wet-end process, in which it is mixed the fiber furnish before paper is formed. It can also be use as a tub size, where the already formed paper is passed through a shallow bath containing the biopolymer aqueous solution. Alternatively, it can be applied as a spray/coat onto a sheet of paper/paper products to enhance the strenght properties.

Novel Ecofriendly Method for Sterilization and Decolorization Using Bioplastic-TiO Composite Film

Photocatalysis has been demonstrated; to be an inexpensive and effective method for treating a wide range of pollutants in both water and alr.App;tuved by the food testing iaboratoly of the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA), TiO, is considered a safe substance and harmless to human. It is corhmonly used in paint, printing ink, plastics, paper, synthetic fibers, rubber, condensers, electronic components along with food and cosmetics. The use of photocatalysis in water purification provides new tools for pre;sarving the environment. However the use of TiO* sugpensions in photocatalysis requires subsequent separation and recycling of the catalyst. In the case of lfltrafine Ti02 catalysis this is a time consuming and expepsive step in the development of recovery technology. Ifowever, we 1 have developed a novel way to overcome the problems. That is, we coated the TiO, photocatalyst (Degussa's P25 formulation) on olyhydroxyaikanoate (PHA) fllm. PHA Is a bio-based thermoplastic synthesized by various microorganisms. Interesting features of TiO, coated biopiastic:
(a) Antimicrobial (to maintain sterile cdndition)
(b) Blodegradable (to create green environment)
(c) Decolorization [to treat industrial waste (dye)] (d) Cost-effective means of recycling the ll0, photocatalyst.
(d) Eco-frlendly (biodegradable, sun - Ilght as Advator) and user-friendly.

Natureblot - Natural and Eco-friendly Facial Oil Blotting Film

Oils is naturally produced by the skin for lubricating purpose, protection from excessive dehydration and maintenance of health and luster. Excess oil gets trapped in the skin pores and this results in bacterial infection that can be one of the causes of skin acne. Skin surface oiliness also affects apperance and selfesteem. The problem is further exacerbated by modern lifestyles whereby people are often outdoors. Because the oil produced by skin has important biological functions blocking oil production using chemicals is not the best solution. On the other hand, methods that provide temporary but fast solution such as oil blotting paper/film may be safer and more effective. Oil blotting papers although efficient are rough on the skin and sensitive to humidity.
