|PCT/CO2013/000011||UNIVERSIDAD DEL VALLE||JARAMILLO PIZARRO, Guillermo Andres|
The present application for a patent of invention relates to a hydraulic machine for low waterfalls below 2 metres in height, which by harnessing the flow of fluid (water) and the hydraulic twist thereof acting on said machine, provides mechanical energy for the production of electricity using the hydro potential of rivers and small streams where physical conditions such as height have not been exploited to the fullest and have been a limiting factor as regards satisfying the electricity needs of the population living in areas around such rivers and streams. It also provides a hydraulic machine for low waterfalls below 2 metres in height which is low-cost, efficient and easy to construct compared to the leading manufacturers of hydraulic machines who do not provide or offer this type of hydraulic machine for low waterfalls below 2 metres in height. Said hydraulic machine for low waterfalls is characterized in that it comprises a stator (40), a rotor (20), a shaft (12), two discs (27, 27'), an axle hub (15) and a pair of ball bearings (13, 13').

||PCT/CO2014/000004||MONTAÑO FERNANDEZ, Carlos Mario||MONTAÑO FERNANDEZ, Carlos Mario|
The invention relates to square, rectangular and curved modules made from metal sections, preferably structural industrial aluminium having a square and grooved cross-section, and interconnected by pairs of hinges located on the front and rear faces of the modules so that they can be folded in relation to one another in a zigzag manner, and lock screws can subsequently be installed and turned in rivet bushes provided in the modules, conferring the necessary stiffness in order for the structure to be maintained in the vertical position. The invention is used to produce structures for advertising and displaying products, such as exhibition furniture and stands. For an item of exhibition furniture, such as a counter at a fair, a structure is assembled using lock screws in rivet bushes and the screws and bushes secure the rigid base disposed in the upper portion of the structure in order to form an item of furniture. The structures are covered with rigid base sheets, such as polystyrene, acrylic, polycarbonate or fabric, digitally printed with elements of the company's corporate identity and photos representing same; thereby optimising the construction and installation time for stands in exhibition halls, since the structures are portable, require no additional tools, and can be reused and reconfigured.

||PCT/CO2014/000002||VALENCIA ZAPATA, Pablo Andrés||VALENCIA ZAPATA, Pablo Andrés|
The invention relates to intelligent shelves for points of sale, comprising a teleprocessing system at self-service points of sale at commercial establishments, which can be used for the real-time monitoring and control of information relating to the products displayed. Designed according to the principle of "information in hand", in which the three users obtain immediate information from the point of sale in real time, i.e.: the end customer who, simply by taking the product displayed on the intelligent shelf, obtains immediate information displayed on information display devices (LCD screen, monitor, digital display, etc.) relating to the price, instructions for use, impulse and commercial information, as well as obtaining information in interactive applications, with answers to frequently asked questions, digital positioning and impulse games, and augmented reality; the store or warehouse, where the intelligent shelf is an important ally that can improve efficiency in supply logistics, allowing control, from a processing and storage device connected to the network (cell, computer, tablet, mobile terminal, etc.), of retail inventories, product re-stock alarms that are relatively new to retail, automated orders to suppliers based on consumption statistics and season, as well as offering a tool that allows the remote management of prices according to the season, time or promotions; and the merchandising and sales area, where the intelligent shelf can be used, in real time and from a remote site, to obtain statistics relating to the point of sale, for remote management of digital POP advertising, BTL activities (interactive games, augmented reality, digital impulse activities based on customised applications, etc.), to take photos or videos of the gondola or store and to consult same remotely using a cell phone or computer.

||PCT/CO2014/000001||JADAA, Rami Imad||JADAA, Rami Imad|
The breakdown of plant biomass having a high lignin content using the Pleurotus ostreatus fungus allows the conversion of 36-42% of said biomass into edible mushrooms of high nutritional value, the remaining 58-64% being a plant biomass massively invaded by the structures of the fungus and in which the lignin has broken down by 90-99%. This natural process has been optimised by means of potentiation of the inoculum, stimulation of the degradative enzymes and control of factors such as oxygenation, moisture and light, thereby facilitating the colonisation by the fungus and limiting the conditions necessary for contamination. This optimisation dispenses with the use of growth promoters, antibiotics or complex methods, allowing the production of mushrooms suitable for human consumption that include a high protein index (25-34% of the dry weight, 18-23% animal protein and 7-11% vegetable) and an enriched compost suitable for use in farming. This process, which is 100% organic, provides an environmentally friendly and effective solution to the problem of hard-to-break-down agroindustrial waste, such as, for example, waste from the African oil palm (Elaeis guineensis) sector.

||PCT/CO2013/000012||LOPEZ RAMIREZ, Guillermo Enrique||LOPEZ RAMIREZ, Guillermo Enrique|
The present invention has been developed in the electro-mechanical engineering field. More specifically, the invention relates to an electro-mechanical device formed by characteristic components which, when installed in a specific manner in the base (seat cushion) and back of a chair or sofa, convert audio signals into tactile vibrations when a person is seated on the chair. In this way, users or audience members in cinemas or other entertainment spaces, such as, inter alia, concert halls, home theatres and amusement arcades, have the unusual sensation of being fully immersed in the film by hearing and feeling it through the body, something which has not been possible before now with any other commercially available device. The device is simple, inexpensive and easy to install and can improve the experience of users in cinemas and home theatres and at concerts or any other type of event.

|PCT/CO2013/000005||CORPORACION PARA LA INVESTIGACION Y DESARROLLO DE ASFALTOS EN EL SECTOR TRANSPORTE E INDUSTRIAL-CORASFALTOS||QUINTERO RANGEL, Luz Stella|
The invention relates to a method for modifying an asphalt binder using, as an additive, a nanocomposite of: functionalised multi-walled carbon nanotubes dispersed in a styrene-butadiene-styrene polymer matrix (SBS/MMWCNT). The asphalt modified with the SBS/MMWCNT nanocomposite has substantially improved mechanical resistance to deformations and to loads at high temperatures, such that the life of the flexible paving is improved. The asphalt mixtures produced with this novel modified asphalt binder have considerably less rutting, are classified as high-modulus asphalt mixtures when produced from asphalt of medium (60/70) or greater hardness, and are not sensitive to moisture effects.

This novel template with novel functions enables the user to draw and create geometric figures and all kinds of angles, rapidly and with precision. It is characterized in that it comprises a rotary circle with template holes, separated from one another by equal spaces superposed on radial lines, with serrated circle templates with sizes of between 1/7th and 1/10th of the dimensions of the general frame, and it has a transverse slot running from one corner to the other, and the slot also passes through the rotary circle over only half of the diameter thereof, where there is a measurement checker.
