NUS Industry Liaison Office (ILO) is the technology translation and commercialization arm of NUS. Over the last five years, ILO has played a pivotal role in getting more than 580 patents granted and more than 60 technology-based companies being spunoff from NUS. In addition to managing and commercializing NUS’ intellectual assets, ILO leverages its deep industry knowledge and network to build strong bonds in numerous technical domains.
Technologies are searchable by category, key word, or phrase and include a detailed description of the technology, inventor and patent information, and contact information to learn more about each technology.

2018-122 – Industry Problem Air resistance or drag can be divided into pressure drag and skin friction drag. While pressure drag can easily bereduced through streamlining, no such simple method exists for minimizing skin friction drag. Fast streamlinedvehicles such as airplanes, high speed trains and Formula 1 cars experience significant skin friction drag, limitingmaximum speeds and requiring huge... Read More
2018-113 – Industry Problem Traditional shopping carts comprise two wheels, one on each side. There are also multi-wheel (eg. 3-wheel) designs available. Unfortunately, these traditional designs pose certain disadvantages. In traditional two wheel trolleys, the user has to put in more effort to overcome obstacles and experiences jerks when trying to pull the trolley on uneven terrain. In multi-wheel... Read More
2018-287 – Market Opportunity The microfluidics market is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 22.6% from an estimated USD 10.06 billion in 2018 to USD 27.91 Billion by 2023. The price of microfluidic products are expected to drop with the growing use of polymers and this, in turn, will increase the adoption of microfluidic technologies during the forecast period. In addition to... Read More
11188n – Market Opportunity The global navigation system market was valued at USD663.4 million in 2016 and is projected to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 6.9% by 2023. Colonoscopy is one of the most frequently performed but also one of the most technical demanding outpatient examinations. Due to the anatomy of the colon, the... Read More
2018-213 – Market Opportunity The global market for ultrafiltration (UF) membranes has grown to nearly $3.3 billion in 2016 from $3.1 billion in 2015. The market is expected to grow at a five-year compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.9% from 2016 to 2021, increasing to nearly $4.6 billion in 2021. The major applications of the technology: food and beverage processing, biopharmaceuticals... Read More
2018-137 – Market Opportunity Global demand for hydrogen storage materials and technologies likely reached $3.4 billion in 2015 and could pass the $5.4 billion mark in 2021. Strong growth is expected in this market, with annual growth rates projected to be 8.1% between 2016 and 2021, according to a report by BCC Research. Technology This technology relates to a flexible free-standing nano-film... Read More
2017-113 – Market Opportunity Chlorinated hydrocarbons are a class of toxic chemicals found frequently in the industrial wastewater, soils and groundwater. Non-invasive bioremediation approaches are rapidly becoming the method of choice over conventional physical and/or chemical remediation processes. In sites contaminated by chlorinated organic pollutants, such as chlorinated ethenes, reductive... Read More
2017-052 – Market Opportunity Consumers in the cosmetic, perfume and food industries often prefer the fine chemicals (e.g. flavours and fragrances) used in the product to be obtained from natural sources. However, the extraction of these specialty chemicals from botanical sources is unable to meet consumer demands, leading to a high price for these chemicals. For example, 2-Phenylethanol (2-PE)...
