Description

A Turkish company, which was established in 2016, developed a method for the hazardous chemicals which are come out during the PET process. The method is useful for inhibiting hazardous chemicals such as acetaldehyde, carboxyl end groups and diethylene glycol chemicals. The object of the method is to prevent the formation of harmful chemicals such as acetaldehyde (AA), COOH end group content (COOH), diethylene glycol (DEG), which increase with the chemical degradation of the PET material from the raw material to the final product. The present invention relates to a method of inhibiting acetaldehyde, carboxyl end groups and diethylene glycol chemistry when 0.2% of the Mg2B2O5 compound is added to the PET during the injection step. The object of the invention is to prevent the formation of harmful chemicals such as acetaldehyde (AA), COOH end group content (COOH), diethylene glycol (DEG), which increase with the chemical degradation of the PET material from the raw material to the final product. The purpose of the present invention is to provide healthier pet bottles to use. All rights related to this recently developed invention have been put under protection of a patent. The company wants to work with any partner who is willing to work with this method or improve this method. The company is looking for license and technical cooperation agreements.

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.
