Nano Natural Stone

Project TitleNano Natural Stone
Year Start2012
Year End2014
Consortium membersGAIRESA
DescriptionThe objective of Nano Natural Stone is to carry out an industrial research project that allows obtaining a validation of generic technology capable of incorporating nanotechnological applications novelties on Galician natural stones for various applications, among which includes the improvement of the thermal conductivity of stones and photocatalytic treatments. The stones of greatest importance and tradition in the Galician industry: granite and slate. On these, are intended to apply coatings able to adhere to the stone. These coatings will be loaded with nanoparticles that provide new properties to stone supports. To allow adhesion of coatings loaded with nanoparticles to the stones, are carried out on these superficial treatments of honing and superficial and volumetric treatments using laser technologies. It is therefore intended to investigate new methods to incorporate cutting-edge technology, as it is nanotechnology and laser treatments, to a traditional material such as natural stone that improve its intrinsic properties. For this, an investigation of nanomaterials will be carried out, coatings and treatments of natural stone. The research in nanomaterials will deepen the methodology of preparation of nanomaterials and in the optimization of their morphology. It is looking to get more manufacturing efficient and controlled nanomaterials, specifically nanofibers and Quantum Clusters Atomic (ACQs). In addition, a validation methodology will be developed to verify the validity of the nanomaterials obtained from the developed techniques.

Project TitleDegrade
Year Start2018
Year End2020
CETIM Technological Center
DescriptionDEGRADE project aims to design and develop a system that allows the adaptation of the current channel disinfection systems by UV radiation of the wastewater treatment plants, to achieve not only a disinfection treatment but also the elimination of the emerging contaminants present (mainly Carbamazepine, Diclofenac, 17-β-estradiol and Bisphenol A, and Propylparaben). For this purpose, a technology based on photoelectrocatalysis will be developed, through the combination of UV-LEDs, which replace the current LED lamps, with photocatalysts based on noble metal nanoclusters supported on a conductive material, and the generation of sulfate radicals, highly oxidants, in order to achieve target mineralization and elimination rates of both emerging organic pollutants and pathogens.

Project Title Lembda
Year Start 2014
Year End 2015
Consortium members NANOGAP
Description Light emitting nanomolecules for biomedical diagnostics applications (LENBDA) project  is aimed to study the industrial use of a biomolecules detection system based on highly specific luminiscent nanoemitters. The system offers a complete solution for the detection of biomolecules in a specific, interference-free way. To accomplish this goal, a fully functional prototype of the diagnostic kit will be developed to be used in pathology labs , so no additional equipment will be needed. In the final stage, the project will be validated against tumor cell lines available in tissues banks.
