A total of 27 new technologies developed by the Industrial Technology Development Institute of the Department of Science and Technology are now ready to be harnessed by investors like many Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs). The technologies include new ways of making more tasty chocolate, dietary fiber from calamansi waste, drum-fried fruit and meat flakes, nanoclay production and others. There are 12 technologies on food processing, six on health and wellness, 6 green engineering and 3 nanotechnologies.
These technologies will be launched in a gathering of prospective investors and adopters, media and other stakeholders on March 29, 2019 at the Crimson Hotel in Muntinlupa City. The event aims to promote new opportunities that are open to entrepreneurs resulting from the research done by Filipino scientists at DOST-ITDI.
DOST TABLEA – The “Tablea” developed by ITDI (a chocolate liquor in a bar) is a solid chocolate that can be used to make a hot chocolate beverage. It is made from local cacao beans using fermentation and roasting processes that have been improved and standardized to give the best quality chocolate drink. The formulation produces a chocolate drink that is less grainy (particle size of T225), giving it a smoother consistency without the burnt aftertaste.
DIETARY FIBER FROM CALAMANSI WASTE – Dietary fiber from calamansi waste is an insoluble type of fiber that has major health benefits. The dietary fiber powder can be used as functional ingredient for food and supplement production. It can also be used as a substitute for uncooked quick-cooking oats and can be taken as dietary fiber capsules.
COMPACT WASTEWATER TREATMENT SYSTEM FOR QSRs – The compact wastewater treatment for Quick Service Restaurants (QSRs) is a low-cost, sustainable, and compressed wastewater treatment system that can be used to treat high-organic wastewater coming from stand-alone QWRs.
NANOCLAY PRODUCTION TECHNOLOGY – Nanoclay is a multifunctional additive or filter in polymer nanocomposites. It is processed from local bentonite ore through organic activation. The technology is multifunctional additive for plastics/polymers, rubber, paints, and adhesives that can improve material properties. These are expected to impact some 115,748 establishments of the manufacturing sector, 119,718 accommodation and food service; and 56,718 other services establishments.
