The present invention relates to the development of an in vitro culture technology for multiplication of Euphorbia groenewaldii R.A. Dyer and Euphorbia clivicola R.A. Dyer, which are indigenous to South Africa and occur in only a few localities in Limpopo Province. The plants are classified as...

Technovera has developed Pelebox, a smart locker system that enables patients to collect their repeat chronic medication in under 22 seconds instead of waiting hours on queues at public clinics. We are leveraging the power of the Internet of Things (IoT) through internet-enabled smart locker devices...

As global populations grow, so does the demand for timber and its by-products, putting an ever-increasing strain on this natural resource. The best way to fight climate change is to plant trees. But silviculture (tree planting) practices remain highly inefficient in both commercial forestry and...

The invention relates to an automated process for fabricating nano and micro structures using high temperature superconducting quantum interference device (SQUIDS). This method overcomes the high cost and complexity in the manufacturing process of superconductors for a commercial scale or mass...

The invention relates to the design of a robust membrane for desalination using membrane distillation (MD). Although MD technology has advanced over the years, it’s industrial application for the treatment of brackish water and seawater are still lagging.  This invention exhibits advantages over the...

Conventional irrigation sprinklers which are fitted with rises pipes above the ground are prone to mechanical damage and disorientation. As a result, the lifespan of the irrigation system is shortened or the potential of irrigation systems to optimally irrigate the required surface areas are...
