Environmentally-friendly glycerol-based low-freezing point liquids with potential use as antifreezes for motor vehicles, or heat transfer liquids for solar heating systems, etc...
An academic research institution from Bulgaria, with a strong background in organic chemistry and interdisciplinary research, has developed non-toxic liquids with low freezing points, containing glycerol and several additives - novel corrosion inhibitors, bactericides, antioxidants, etc., depending on their intended use. The Institute is interested in all types of cooperation to further develop custom tailored and specialty products based on these formulations, and to extend their potential use,
The Institute welcomes cooperation with companies (SME or larger) with experience in production of antifreeze and heat transfer liquids and with expertise in development of similar products. The researchers can offer specific antifreeze formulations for different application conditions. Bulgarian academic research institute also seeks interaction with R&D Institutions.
An academic research organization, with main interests in the field of organic chemistry, has developed non-toxic liquids with low freezing points, containing glycerol and various additives, novel corrosion inhibitors, bactericides, antioxidants, etc., depending on their intended use. Glycerol-containing antifreezes have recently attracted much attention, because glycerol has become readily available as a by-product in biodiesel production. Unlike ethylene glycol, glycerol is not toxic and less aggressive to metal surfaces. Depending on the diverse performance requirements for antifreezes with different intended use, liquids with custom tailored formulations have been proposed. The additives are new environmentally-friendly corrosion inhibitors, wetting agents, bactericides, antioxidants, accelerators, dyes. The Institute has long standing experience in assisting various businesses with innovative know-how for problem solving and novel technologies in various industries, including the implementation. The institute provides the equipment required and the premises for performing research and testing. Partners are invited for a research cooperation in order to develop environmentally friendly non-toxic antifreezes for different intended uses, for custom-tailored products, and for the manufacturing thereof.
Advantages and innovations
Main advantages of glycerin antifreezes are that: - they are non-toxic. - the waste product from biodiesel production – glycerol, is utilized. By carefully selecting antifreeze additives, custom tailored products can be produced and аn optimal ratio between the desired properties and the cost of the products can be achieved.

How it works
- Tell us about yourself
- We’ll discuss with you
- We put the right partners in touch
EEN help you find the right partner, rather than you going it alone.
Our role is to review and collate the most suitable submissions, and then send them to the client who posted the opportunity. We consult with you, and the client, to make the process professional and easy.
These are live opportunities. Your registration of interest on the site is just like a professional approach to a business at a networking event. To stand the best chance of success, make your submission really sing. Sell why the client who posted the opportunity should work with you. Excite them. Ask questions. Try and avoid copy and pasting words from elsewhere.
Once the client has chosen their partner, we'll introduce them over email and keep in touch with both parties to see how it's going. Sometimes things progress quickly. Sometimes because of changing priorities for either party, things progress slowly, but you never know - your next big business break could start right here.
First we need to check you’re human.
