We collaborate with a range of businesses who are innovating for a greener and sustainable future.
To celebrate World IP Day (26 April 2020) and the theme of ‘Innovate for a Green Future’ we are highlighting some of the technologies and companies we work with to develop and protect their intellectual property rights and portfolios.
The sweet smell of innovation. Back in 2009 the concept for NappiCycle was born and the business has been in operation since 2014. In the past 12 months over 20 million disposable nappies have been 100% recycled and diverted from landfill, with some of the recycled product used to create fibre boards and acoustic panels.
Money for old…plastic. Swindon based Recycling Technologies are developing modular, medium-scale recycling equipment that allows processing of hard-to-recycle plastics at local recycling centres. Their unique, mass producible system increases recycling capacity and converts low value waste into a feedstock that not only closes the loop on the circular economy, but also offers operators with a saleable product that provides a revenue stream all of its own. We’ve been working with their engineers to keep their IP protection commercially relevant and on track as developments are made in this fast moving area of technology.
Flying in the wind. When it comes to wind energy many of us will visualise a landscape of tall wind turbines, however Kiteswarms are planning to disrupt this market. By introducing interlinked, ascending kites they intend to introduce this as an alternative to the turbines and improve the consistency of harnessing wind power as a reliable energy source.
Built to last. Manufacturer Gecko Rubber have created a foam rubber product that will outlast the conventional cycle tyre. Not only are their tyres puncture proof and more comfortable to ride than previous tubeless tyres, they are also easy to recycle as they doesn’t contain all the composites and metal materials you’ll find in a traditional product.
