Elimination of microplastics and per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) problems upon the disposal of single-use packagingOur technology focuses on PFAS and microplastics-free end-of-life for paper-based packaging materials. Biodegradable polymers were applied onto paper as a coating to create water and oil repellency, and performance such as physicomechanical, and thermal sealing tests for packaging applications are evaluated.
EV-Powered Mobile 3D Concrete Printing of In Situ MaterialnecoTECH’s Rapid Concrete Deployment Machine (RCDM) enables rapid sustainment and structure printing. By developing a self-contained, self-powered vehicle, specifically designed to utilize both traditional concrete and our environmentally friendly and in situ alternatives, necoTECH can create a real-time, on-location, mobile concrete additive manufacturing system.
