  • Patent number: 8852503
    Abstract: A method of biological soil decontamination, including the introduction into the soil of a product that contains a material chosen from a group consisting of proteins, carbohydrates and lipids. The product introduced into the soil does not contain any unprocessed fresh plants or unprocessed fresh plant residues. The method also includes the application of a barrier layer over the soil, e.g., between the soil and the air.

  • Patent number: 8546520
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a method of reducing allergenicity of natural rubber latex products caused by allergens by reducing extractable protein levels found for said products, said method comprising the steps of: subjecting said products to a wash in a strong alkaline solution to deteriorate the allergens, and a system for reducing allergenicity of natural rubber latex products caused by allergens by reducing extractable protein levels found for said products, and a product, such as a glover or condom, manufactured from natural rubber latex.

  • Patent number: 6755915
    Abstract: A method for the preparation of starch particles in a two-phase system comprises at least the following steps: a) a preparation of a first phase comprising a dispersion of starch in water; b) preparation of a dispersion or emulsion of the first phase in a second liquid phase, with the proviso that the second phase is not water; c) cross-linking of the starch present in the first phase; d) separating the starch particles thus formed. According to a first aspect of the invention the second phase consists of a hydrophobic liquid and step b) consists in forming an oil-in-water emulsion, which is then inverted to a water-in-oil emulsion. According to a second aspect of the invention, the second phase consists of a water-miscible non-solvent for starch. Starch particles of very small particles size can be produced in a controlled manner by means of this method.

  • Patent number: 6677386
    Abstract: A process for producing biopolymer nanoparticles is described, in which the biopolymer is plasticised using shear forces, a crosslinking agent being added during the processing. After said processing. After said processing, the biopolymer can be dissolved or dispersed in an aqueous medium to a concentration between 4 and 40 wt. %. This results in starch nanoparticles which are characterized by an average particle size of less than 400 nm.
