An Energy-free and Low-cost Daytime Passive Radiative Cooling Paint for Energy Saving in Buildings and Decarbonization

I2Cool Limited

This project aims to promote a novel energy-free and environment-friendly passive radiative cooling paint (patented in Hong Kong) for energy-saving and decarbonization. The self-developed and high-performance paint features the edge in solar reflection and thermal emission, resulting its significant sub-ambient cooling effect, without consuming electricity and ozone-depleting refrigerants. We have demonstrated its high effectiveness and wide applicability in various scenarios. Most notably, in a site-building use case (supported by the HKSAR), by applying the cooling paint, the roof surface and the indoor air temperature could be reduced by 20-30 ⁰C and 5-6⁰C, respectively, leading to the 8-10% cooling energy saving potential. Empowered by the remarkable R&D outcomes and the vibrant market environment, the related market potential can be exploited in this project and a promising business prospect is anticipated. We will collaborate with different parties and organizations in building, energy and paint industries to effectively demonstrate and promote our paint product. Continuous product and business upgrade will also be conducted to maintain our technical competence and business sustainability. Our ultimate goal is to achieve remarkable environmental and social impacts, mitigating the energy shortage and climate change, while facilitating overall sustainable development and economic growth in Hong Kong.

Functional Hyaluronic Acid and Innovative Microneedle with wide applications in medicine and cosmetics

Greater Bay Biotechnology Limited

Greater Bay Biotechnology focuses on developing innovative technologies in intradermal and transdermal drug delivery, including the frontier technology for cell delivery. With our patented cryomicroneedles (CMNs) platforms, we have developed a new administration route for therapeutic cells.

Cell therapy is booming in regenerative medicine and immuno-oncology and brings hope to patients of life-threatening diseases, however its usage is limited by the storage, transportation and delivery method. Our CMNs could benefit patients of cell therapies as it allows the storage, transportation, and in situ delivery of living cells. In addition to the CMNs platform, we have expertise in other microneedle platforms, providing reliable dissolvable microneedles (dMNs) for drug delivery. The dMN is based on hyaluronic acid, which is beneficial for providing controlled drug release, preservation of bioactivity for biomacromolecules, and precise penetration depths. We have developed dMNs with applications in scar treatment, anti-obesity treatment, anti-aging treatment and can extend to cancer treatment, and cosmetic applications should demand arises. .

We partner with medical institutions, universities, pharmaceutical companies, cosmetic companies, and healthcare professionals to invent, develop and validate our platform technologies in cell therapy, medical and cosmetic applications.
