IFIA World Competition of Chemical Inventions 2017
The 6th edition of the World Competition of Chemical Inventions 2017, organized by the International Federation of Inventors’ Associations (IFIA), took place during the International Warsaw Invention Show from 9 to 11 October.
The jury of the competition consisted of:
- Prof. Grzegorz Grynkiewicz, Pharmaceutical Research Institute
2. Jerzy Polaczek, deputy editor of the Chemical Industry
3. Prof. Victor Andrei Sandu, Gheorghe Asachi Technical University of Iasi, Romania
Two out of 40 chemical inventions were awarded during chemical competition. The main prize of the of the 6th World Competition of Chemical Inventions went to Croatia to the University of Zagreb, Faculty of Chemical Engineering and Technology for “Laboratory polymer filament extruder for 3D printing of microreactors”. The aim of this research is to develop an instrument for extrusion of polymeric filament with uniformed diameter for purpose of 3D printing of microreactors. In process of making the extruder, widely available materials were used, while required plastic parts were made using 3D printer. The Arduino platform, in which the computer program was written, provides measuring and process control via the control panel of the device.
The second prize was granted to The First Institute Inventors & Researchers in I.R.IRAN for “The filter screwed over the bottle of water cap for physical purification and re-dissolution of essential minerale”.
In this invention, a nano filter which is screwed on the bottle of mineral water orifice blocks the water. This filter avoids the passing of any minerals and pollution and changes the polluted water into the drinking water. The filter will be dissolved into the water after the essential minerals are filtered. The similar filters have been made but the distinguishing feature of this product is this low volume filter can be accessible for the public everywhere and any time to provide healthy drinking water.
