|PCT/NZ2012/000082||BREE, Charles, Caulder||BREE, Charles, Caulder|
One or more modules are each moulded as single units. Separately or fastened together they form a foundation resistant to ground movement including earthquakes and frost heave. A lower plane rests on a substrate. Perimeter and internal walls support a raised upper plane for receiving a building such as a rotationally moulded round house. Modules are made of reinforced concrete or rotationally moulded plastics and enclose internal cavities used as tanks or filled with a rigid foam. Lifting attachments are provided for transport of modules or temporary foundation lifting during rearrangement of a disturbed substrate.

|PCT/NZ2013/000089||GREGORY, Shaun||GREGORY, Shaun|
A method of growing shellfish is disclosed. The method comprises obtaining a support tray (1) with recesses (7) where at least some of the recesses (7) incorporate means adapted to create a deliberately formed alphanumeric, written or pictorial mark on the shellfish as it grows. Shellfish spat are attached to at least some of the recesses (7) and the tray (1) is placed in water so that the spat grow into substantially mature shellfish within the recesses (7). The spat each grow generally in the shape of their respective recess (7) so that the mark is created on the shellfish as it grows.

|PCT/NZ2013/000091||ETZION, Ron||ETZION, Ron|
The invention comprises a process comprising infiltrating or infiltrating and coating a substrate with a boron-comprising precursor, and contacting the boron-comprising precursor with a nitrogen-comprising reactant to convert the boron-comprising precursor to BN or other a boron-nitrogen reaction product in the surface porosity or in the surface porosity and on the surface of the substrate. Composite materials comprising as one phase a substrate and BN or other a boron-nitrogen reaction product as a further phase, in surface porosity or in surface porosity and on a surface of the substrate, are claimed.

|PCT/NZ2013/000092||LANZATECH NEW ZEALAND LIMITED||CHEN, Wendy|
Bacteria are genetically engineered to produce 3-hyrdoxypropionate (3-HP). The bacteria are carboxydotrophic acetogens. The bacteria produce acetyl-coA using the Wood-Ljungdahl pathway for fixing CO/C0?2#191. A malonyl-coA reductase from a bacterium that contains such an enzyme is introduced. Additionally, an acetyl-coA carboxylase may also be introduced The production of 3-HP can be improved by overproduction of acetyl-CoA carboxylase or by overproduction of biotin. This can be effected by improved promoters or higher copy number or enzymes that are catalytically more efficient.

|PCT/NZ2013/000090||LINE LAUNCHER HOLDINGS LIMITED||HIGHAM, Anthony John|
A line launcher (110) capable of firing a projectile (117) and an attached line (125) up to about 70 metres. It has a barrel (113) large enough for a resilient projectile attached to a line. It has a pre-charge chamber capable of storing a pressurised gas from a pressurised gas cartridge. A trigger mechanism vents the gases in this pre-charge chamber into the barrel to expel the projectile and line. Gas from the pressurised gas cartridge (e.g. a CO2 bulb) is released slowly enough to pressurise the pre-charge chamber but without the cartridge freezing as might occur if the gas was discharged directly from the cartridge into the barrel to directly propel the projectile.

The present invention relates to a connector including a first shaft. The shaft includes a central portion, a first spring associated with one end of the central portion, and a second spring associated with another end of the central portion. One of the springs is right handed, and the other spring is left handed.

Terpenes are valuable commercial products used in a diverse number of industries. Terpenes may be produced from petrochemical sources and from terpene feed-stocks, such as turpentine. However, these production methods are expensive, unsustainable and often cause environmental problems including contributing to climate change. Microbial fermentation provides an alternative option for the production of terpenes. One or more terpenes and/or precursors can be produced by microbial fermentation of a substrate comprising CO. Recombinant microorganisms may be used in such methods. Carboxydotrophic, acetogenic, recombinant microorganisms can be used in such methods. The recombinant microorgnsims may contain exogenous mevalonate (MVA) pathway enzymes and/or DXS pathway enzymes, for example.

|PCT/NZ2013/000094||VERITIDE LIMITED||CHOI, Joon Koo|
A system and method for the detection of bacteria on a sample, utilises spectroscopic analysis of the sample and the fluorescent properties of bacteria or other substance(s) or matter associated with the bacteria to identify the presence of bacteria on the sample. A detector analyses light emitted from the sample in response to illumination. The detector 5 is arranged to analyse the emission spectra across two wavebands, a first waveband containing the wavelengths associated with the fluorescent properties of the bacterial species or other substance or matter to be detected, and a second waveband excluding these wavelengths but also having an overlapping region with the first waveband.
