At the Ibn Msiq Faculty of Sciences of the Hassan II University of Casablanca, Amit showed two new inventions signed by research professors and a research student.
The first invention relates to a multifunctional thermomagnetic reactor that can be used in “certain dangerous reactions or to produce gases suitable for civil use.”
The second invention, designed to “reduce energy consumption and reduce electricity bills”, aims to “reduce global warming, reduce toxic gas emissions and eliminate plastic waste” by turning it into “liquid waste”. fuel.”
The research team included Rashid Cheruaki, Research Professor at the Regional Center for Education and Training in Chemistry, Saeed Beluad, Director of the Laboratory of Physical Chemistry of Materials, Faculty of Natural Sciences, Ben Amsik, and Jamal Najaa, Professor of Physical Chemistry, Faculty of Science and Settat Technologies, and research student Jamal Afkir.
Rashid Cheruaki told Hespress that the work was carried out in a lab at Ben Amsek College with the collaboration of Settat’s Faculty of Science and Technology.
“This idea came to me when I was doing my PhD and I was thinking about how to turn plastic into gasoline. After that, an opportunity presented itself when Professor Belavad asked me to propose a research topic for my doctoral dissertation.
Here began the development of the idea in a direction that could “solve the environmental problem associated with exhaust gases” and “reduce the amount of oil produced.”
This study “gave results” and is today before the Patent Committee after reaching a connection with the Moroccan Industrial and Intellectual Property Office, which it is investigating.
For his part, Omar Tanan, director of the Technological Innovation Support Center at the Ibn M’sik Faculty of Sciences, said: “At the university and in the faculty, our role is to encourage inventors and we take young people by the hand. , doctors and researchers to develop; However, we find that most of them disclose their inventions through scientific publications, which does not preserve their rights, since anyone can use the results of their research. Therefore, we encourage them to file their discoveries in the form of patents so that they can retain their rights if the conditions are met.”
The spokesperson continued in a statement to Hespress: “These two inventions qualify for a patent, especially in light of the recent energy crisis, and they can help generate energy at the lowest cost by recycling waste that is released into nature. , that is, energy that does not require large investments and solves many problems.
