WO/2016/159394 NEW ECO-FRIENDLY AND CLEAN METHOD OF PROCESSING HIDES AND FISH SKINS INTO LEATHER USING ALKALINE PROTEASE ENZYME||WO||06.10.2016|
||PCT/KE2016/000047||UNIVERSITY OF NAIROBI||WYCLIFFE CHISUTIA WANYONYI|
The present invention relates to an eco-friendly bio-processing method for the processing of hides and fish skin from Nile Perch (Lates niloticus)) into leather, comprising mainly enzymatic treatment of the hide or skin with crude alkaline proteases enzyme in the pretanning steps. This method produces fish leather with moire patterns unique to fish skin created through the descaling process, which in turn provide beauty totally different from that of general leather. According to this invention, the method for dehairing of hides or skins and descaling fish skin has been greatly simplified, pollution impact on the environment reduced in a maximum way and at the same time does not cause damage to grain. Moreover, the valuable hair and scales removed during dehairing or descaling process are readily recovered from the enzyme liquor while still in good condition suitable for further use. The final leather product exhibit better qualities such as softness, toughness and pliability. This invention completely eliminates use of sodium sulfide and lime in dehairing as well as greatly reducing the pungent smell which is the characteristic smell of tanneries across the world.

WO/2016/024643 A TIDAL WAVE POWERED DEVICE AND A METHOD THEREOF FOR PRODUCING POTENTIAL ENERGY||WO||18.02.2016|
||PCT/KE2014/000042||KANYUA, Maina||KANYUA, Maina|
The invention relates to a tidal wave powered device and a method thereof for producing potential energy from the movement of tidal waves in a water mass, the device comprising a cylinder (18) anchored to the bed (22) of the water mass with a piston (16) located in the cylinder to define a pumping chamber (25) therein. A storage tank (23) is located at an elevated height for storage of water delivered from the cylinder pumping chamber (25). A docking unit (30) anchored to the bed of the water mass is connected to a floater (10) such that when the floater (10) attains an optimal height, the docking unit (30) is locked in to hold the floater (10) in an elevated position. The docking unit (30) is opened to release the floater (10) from the elevated position so that the weight of the floater pushes the piston (16) downwards to deliver water from the pumping chamber (25) of the cylinder (18) into the storage tank (23).

WO/2015/056816 METHOD AND SYSTEM FOR CONVERSION OF SMART PHONE APPLICATIONS TO BASIC PHONE APPLICATIONS||WO||23.04.2015|
||PCT/KE2014/000039||INTERNATIONAL BUSINESS MACHINES CORPORATION||MIBUARI, Eric|
A system and method is disclosed for converting smart cell phone applications to applications that operate on basic cell phones. The invention has a classifying process that classifies one or more functions of a cell phone application into those functions capable being performing by a basic cell phone and those functions, missing functions, that can not be performed by a basic cell phone. Substitute functions for the missing functions are developed. An emulator monitors the execution of the cell phone application and provides the substitute cell phone functions at points in the execution where a missing function is to be executed. Therefore, the smart phone application is converted into a basic phone application that can be executed by the basic cell phones with reduced functionality. The invention can run on a smart phone or a server. The invention can also be provided as a server based service for basic cell phone users.
