WO/2015/038021 PROCESS FOR THE REMOVAL AND RECOVERY OF HEAVY METALS FROM LIQUID EFFLUENTS||WO||19.03.2015|
||PCT/PT2014/000060||INSTITUTO SUPERIOR TECNICO||CARVALHO, Jorge Manuel Rodrigues de|
The present invention concerns a process and corresponding equipment, to remove and recover heavy metals from liquid effluents. The process includes two main stages. In the first stage, called biosorption, the heavy metals contaminating the effluent to be treated are adsorbed on the biomass: dried and ground grape stalks. This stage is carried out in a set of continuous stirred reactors, individually connected to settlers. In the second stage the biomass is regenerated using a suitable eluent. This stage is carried out in a filter press with innovative membrane plates and control valves of the eluent flow. From this integrated process results the removal of heavy metals from the effluent and their recovery as a concentrated aqueous solution. This solution can be effectively and profitably fed to a metals recovery hydrometallurgical process. This process applies to the mining industrial sector and to the treatment of effluents coming from the metal surface treatment industry.

||PCT/PT2014/000054||INSTITUTO SUPERIOR TECNICO||GONCALVES, MARIA Clara Henriques Baptista|
The present invention concerns a multifunctional superparamagnetic nanosystem and its production method for nano-biomedical imaging, human and animal, intended to be used as contrast agent (CA) for Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI). Furthermore, it can be associated with therapies such as hyperthermia, and to the transport and targeted release of selected drugs, by conjugation with biomolecules. The multifunctional superparamagnetic nanosystem can be used as negative contrast agent, reducing the T2 value of tissues in MRI, found on the extremely high magnetic moment, under the action of a magnetic field. It can also be used as positive contrast agent. Its efficiency as MRI contrast agent allows for the usage of clinical dosages that are much lower than the ones currently administered to patients who undergo this diagnosis technique. The multifunctional superparamagnetic nanosystem provides a technological platform for several applications in nano- biomedical imaging. It is biocompatible and biodegradable, and its production is free of organic compounds and surfactants.
WO/2015/023194 COMBINED MECHANISM FOR ARTICULATION AND LATCH LOCKING/UNLOCKING FOR BUILT-IN LOCKS ON STANDARD DOORS||WO||19.02.2015|
||PCT/PT2014/000048||BARBOSA, Mafalda Botequilha||BARBOSA, Carlos Manuel Rosa|
The utility model presented is a combined mechanism for articulation and latch locking/unlocking for built-in locks on standard doors. The mechanism allows the user, upon applying vertical force, to retract the latch of the lock horizontally. The aforementioned mechanism consists of a perforated part and trigger (1) that initiates a rotational movement produced by a ratchet rod (2) perpendicular to the surface of the lock and present on each of its sides. Upon being moved vertically, it forces the part (1) to turn in a circular motion, thereby retracting the latch shaft (3) horizontally. The aforementioned ratchet rod (2) ends in a quadrangular parallelepiped, allowing the use of existing standard door knobs, thereby guaranteeing the aesthetics of the door. The utility model presented is applicable in the manufacture of built-in locks for standard doors.
