Awarded prizes for the Institute of Nuclear Chemistry and Technology on the International Exhibitions in 2010

The Sol-Gel Laboratory in the Institute of Nuclear Chemistry and Technology has received four awards for original research achievements at the international exhibitions of invention this year. The inventive projects:

Synthesis of irregular and spherical particles of uranium oxide (Patent application for Poland – P-389385, as well as European Union countries, Russia, Ukraine and Belarus) – Andrzej Deptuła, Marcin Brykała, Andrzej Grzegorz Chmielewski, Danuta Wawszczak, Tadeusz Olczak, Wiesława Łada obtained:

Silver Medal
At the IV International Warsaw Invention Show – IWIS 2010 in Warsaw (20-22.10.2010)

Method of Bioceramics Material Production
(Patent Pl 207182) – Wiesława Łada, A. Deptuła, Tadeusz Olczak, Andrzej Ignaciuk, Michał Kozłowski obtained:

Gold Medal
At the exhibition: VI International Invention and New Technology Exposition “New Time” in Sevastopol (Ukraine, 23-25.09.2010)

Bronze Medal
At the 14th edition of the exhibition: The International Trade Show for Inventions and New Technologies, Bucharest (Romania – 6-9.10.2010)

Individual Award for M. Sc. Wiesława Łada
At the Korea International Women’s Invention Exposition 2010 in Seoul (South Korea 6-9.05.2010)

Awarded prizes concern synthesis of the latest generation of nanocomposites of ceramic materials with the original variant (8 patents granted to the Institute) of sol-gel process called CSGP (Complex Sol-Gel Process). Applied in other European countries inventive project (P-389385 dated 27 October 2009) “The preparation of uranium dioxide of spherical and irregular crystallites” simplifies synthesis process of fuels for IV generation reactors. This is a very promising prospect in connection with planned development of nuclear energy in Poland. Another inventive project “The way of neutralization of radioactive waste in silica glasses” also applied in European countries (P390467 dated 16.02.2010) concerns an extremely important problem of neutralization by vitrification with using CSGP method, high-level radioactive waste generated during nuclear reactors operation.
Other prizes concern the use of bioceramic materials (hydroxyapatite) obtained by CSGP method in medicine. The using CSGP method for:

  • 188W/188Re isotope generators manufacturing for use in medicine (diagnosis and therapy) – application of inventive project P391261 dated 20.05.2010
  • preparation of activated yttrium oxide microspheres for local irradiation of tumors by administration to the affected tissues
  • synthesis of titanium dioxide to the catalysts and bacterial layers (Gold Medal at the Eureka! 2007 in Brussels “The preparation of titanium dioxide and titanates of lithium and barium from titanium tetrachloride”, Pl 198039)
  • synthesis of materials for high-energy lasers (YAG) and infrared lasers (metal tungstates subsidized) – application of innovative project P379537 dated 12.05.2006
