  • Financier: National Authority for Scientific Research ,
  • Project type: Module I CEEX
  • Financial resources (state budget): 1.000.000 lei
  • Duration: 24 months
  • Project's abstract
    • We propose the achievement of a project by help of which to perform research and technological development works for applications and precompetitive purposes, the achievement of a long lasting partnership between participants in the domain of surfactants based auxiliaries, by which to ensure the increase of the competitivity of these products and to reduce the negative impact on the environment.
    • The project is aimed at elaborating new technologies in order to obtain surfactants based auxiliaries for the metal working industry (emulsions and microemulsions), textile industry (mercerization and hydrophilization agents textile finishing agents), emulgators for the radioactively contaminated mineral oils as well as a liquid membranes system for radioactive metal separation. For these purposes the offerors intend to achieve a series of activities, which mainly consist in fundamental methodology based on scientific selection of auxiliaries composition in good agreement with the surface activity parameters (HLB, clouding point, wetting capacity, surface and interfacial tension, foaming power, emulsifying capacity) and the auxiliaries use value, in order to ensure environment protection, according to the EU norms and national legislation.. By the participation of the main manufacturer- S.C. CHEMIX at this project we intend to put into practice the results obtained as a consequence of project development. The researches will have as main goal the study and elaboration of auxiliaries without negative impact upon the environment. Some significant examples are the replacement of ethoxylated nonylphenol by other surfactants (methyl esters) and the selection of some derivatives of vegetal oils (methyl esters) under the conditions of constant surface activity parameters and use value. The elaboration for the textile industry of some auxiliaries with certain enzyme content represents an element of novelty leading to significant technico-economical advantages.
    • Surfactants based auxiliaries which are to be elaborated are employed under the form of colloidal systems; we consider that this project joins with chapter 4 namely Nanosciences and Nanotechnologies, materials and new manufacturing processes, point 4.3 new products from thematic fields S&T. The connected fields are: 6.1 Climatic changes, pollution and risk for the environment protection concerns, and 4.4 Advanced materials and technologies for intersectorial applications of the auxiliaries we have studied.
    • Complexity of the thematic is determinate by the integration within the project of the activities of manufacturing biorenewable of raw materials based auxiliaries (surfactants and enzymes) by the multitude of the field of use investigated (metal working industries, nuclear activities and textile industry). The selection of the auxiliaries components is made based on scientifically substantiated criteria. The project is aimed at finalizing the activities products and technologies transfer to the CHEMIX and CCMMM partners in order to introduce them into manufacturing.
