100% biodegradable flower pot, made from agro waste

100% biodegradable pots are made of 60% biodegradable materials in their soil and 40% agro waste from grinding flour (wheat, rice hash, etc.).

  1. The challenge was overcoming the normally very high price of biodegradable materials. One of our team members helped develop an affordable solution, using agro waste as a filler. At the same time the newly developed material is ideal for use in the agro segment.
  2. We developed a process technology to produce new biomaterials with conventional plastic injection machines.
  3. We used a test mould, developed by BOKRI d.o.o, TECOS CELJE, and FTPO SG, and produced a new type of 100% biodegradable flower pots. The eco pots are very easy to use. You simply seed a plant in the pot and, when that plant is ready to be transplanted to the soil, you bury it together inside the pot, right in the ground. After 3 months the pot will have fully broken down into fertilizer.

Fast and reliable evaluation of the quality (i.e. the allowed amount of the non-metallic inclusions) of wrought aluminium alloys (whether the sample is good or bad) based on an algorithm for the smart filtration (ASF) of the optical emission spectrum (OES)

Innovators developed a promising approach for the fast inspection of chemical composition and inclusions in wrought aluminium alloys, namely the optical emission spectroscopy (OES). However, in order to separate the peaks corresponding to particular inclusions from those of microstructural features in the matrix, advanced filtering of the OES spectrum is necessary. The methodology is based on data-driven predictions of whether the analysis sample is good or bad. It was established through systematic quality control using optical and SEM microscopy in combination with OES. The currently achieved quality of the predictions is higher than 95%.

Automated machine for 3D shape screen printing on fountain pens

For a customer's product, a fountain pen, we developed an automated process solution for screen printing 3D dots on the pen’s triangular shaft. The solution aided in avoiding difficult re-insertion into the tool for dot injection in the second component and eliminated the possibility of scratches on the lacquered surface during insertion. With the correct choice of lacquer and UV-drying process, we ensured the dots’ excellent adhesion to the surface. The process is automated from the beginning to the end, where at the same time two rows of dots are applied to two shafts on one side, and on the other finished shafts are removed and raw shafts are mounted on the holders. We also standardized packaging for internal transport, which allows us to get a quicker overview and speed up further assembly through simpler handling. We connected the machine to the System SKRBNIK, which shows OEE in real time and reports downtime. The solution enables fast colour changes, fewer errors, and an overall expedited process.

Innovative nanofabrication process for catalyst production of better and cheaper hydrogen fuel cells

In the race to cut greenhouse emissions, hydrogen fuel cells offer a green alternative to electrical energy production by converting hydrogen and oxygen, with the help of a catalyst, to electricity and water. One of the major issues facing the wider adoption of this technology is the price of catalysts, which make up almost half of the total manufacturing costs of hydrogen fuel cells. Scientists at NIC have developed new nano-technological process and with it a platinum-copper alloy catalyst that is cheaper to manufacture and several times more active than the best alternatives on the market.

Production of composite panels and 3D products from recycled material in electro-heating tools

The product’s binder is polyurethane-based, which requires only moisture and the right temperature to react. The existing activation of the polyurethane adhesive reaction is the dosing of steam into the mixture itself, thereby stabilizing the product. After the activation process is completed, approximately 40% humidity is stored in the product and the humidity should be reduced by drying as required.

Our case, however, uses an electrically heated tool to cause a binder reaction. We minimize the required amount of water to reach the end plate with the maximum moisture content required. This both obviates additional drying and decreases the reaction time. The advantages are reduced energy and water consumption. Our new, innovative thermal process causes a reaction or the evaporation of water into steam. The tool can be heated to a higher temperature than that obtained by steam dosing, so the water evaporates more quickly and forms a reaction. The reaction is simultaneously formed on all particles of the mixture.

Waste water treatment plant SBR-Q

The SBR-Q municipal wastewater treatment plant is a market innovation, as an upgrade to the existing biological wastewater treatment plants with so-called SBR operation or cyclical wastewater treatment. It is intended for the treatment of waste water from facilities with a constant flow of water, such as tourist facilities.

The owners of such a treatment plant can completely rely on its operation and limit their inspections to only once per year. The treatment plant’s operation can be continually monitored remotely from a mobile app. The system communicates any need for human intervention. This saves costs associated with contacting customer service departments and unnecessary pumping of treatment plants. As a result, the cost of maintaining municipal wastewater treatment plants is reduced and their service life is increased.

Stilles brass imitation

Stilles's development team has invented a material that replaces the metallic alloy of patinated aged brass – STILLES Painted BRASS EFFECT. The visual effect of the brass is highly aesthetically complete; it can be applied to surfaces of any size and of various products or materials. We kept a natural look and an old velvet effect, eliminated magnetic radiation, and improved acoustic and thermal insulation. A holistic approach to solving the particular client’s wishes led to the development of sophisticated, aesthetic equipment for interiors that have a velvety, old-fashioned, and prestigious touch. We thus once again followed our basic mission – to give timelessness to timber and other materials.

Ultra-Light Hyper Car with front-axle drive using an external rotor electric motor without a power converter

The subject of the invention is a technical system connecting an electric motor, a safety clutch with a disc brake, an internal joint, a shaft, and a homokinetic joint with a shaft for attaching a wheel hub. The innovation enables the direct transfer of power from the electric motor to the drive shaft/vehicle shaft. The system can also be used to power a machine, boat, or any other technical device. The presented powertrain enables 100% power utilization from the electric motor to the wheel of the vehicle, as it has no built-in elements that would reduce efficiency, as the case with current technical solutions that use gearboxes and differentials. The energy generated by the vehicle’s normal braking can be transmitted via a wheel and a shaft to an electric motor, which, in the event of braking, acts as a generator and converts it into electricity, storing it in batteries.

Highly effective venturi element for the pharmaceutical and process industry

The NuVE venture element is a highly effective tubular element enabling a simplified, cost-effective solution for sampling bypass execution in purified fluid installations. Its role is differential pressure generation and consecutive fluid circulation in bypass with velocities enabling turbulent flows. NuVE solves the problems of currently available venturi (so-called Dynaflux) elements, which achieve very limited characteristics. Highly efficient NuVE type venturi elements exceed competitive products in generated pressure difference and bypass flow velocity by factor of 5 and more.
