Background

As the global demand for quality pharmaceutical products continues to grow, conventional production platforms are facing severe limitations in terms of scalability, long production times and high costs.

In recent years, the production of heterologous proteins using plant expression...

Moulds are hollowed-out blocks that are used as tools for the mass production of parts such as plastic bottles and automotive parts. These moulds are expensive to manufacture and are therefore designed to have a long service life.  Manufacturing industries thus seek cost-effective processes to...

The technology is a membrane for treating acid mine drainage that is reproducible and can handle large discharges of acid mine drainage. It is suitable for implementation in a filtration cartridge setup that allows for the reclamation of metals which can then be recycled and used for other...

This technology is a high-temperature self-repairing carbide ceramic matrix composite. It is produced using titanium and a porous CfC composite preform matrix. Titanium and the composite preform matrix are placed in a crucible and spark plasma sintering is used to melt titanium so that it...

One of the barriers to increasing microprocessing clock speed is the extreme difficulty to move heat out of the CPU chip. Wits researchers have developed a cold spraying heat exchanger manufacturing technique where thin layers of copper and aluminium are deposited on a copper substrate. De-alloying...

The grant funding is focused on applied research that will accelerate Technology Readiness Levels (TRL) and lead to the creation of products, processes or services that can be commercialised to advance South Africa’s eMobility industry. Proposals will have to meet the hurdle and adjudication criteria and demonstrate the intent to further develop and commercialise the proposed technology. Priority will be given to projects that:
