Abstract
The Seeker is searching for a partner who can help in the development of a corrosion resistant lining for stainless steel process equipment. We would like to adapt standard reaction vessels (316 SS, Hastelloy) so that they can be utilized under acidic conditions at high temperature and pressure.

We are open to any solutions, but we envision some type of "coating" or "treatment" of exposed surfaces including reactor body and head, inlets/outlets, heat exchangers, fittings and valves. The potential partner should have potential solutions and the skills and equipment to produce the "coating" or "treatment" for the Seeker to test. A collaboration partnership will be established with an appropriate candidate.
Overview
The Seeker is searching for a partner who can help in the development of a corrosion resistant lining for stainless steel process equipment. We would like to adapt standard reaction vessels (316 SS, Hastelloy) so that they can be utilized under acidic conditions at high temperature and pressure.

This is an electronic Request for Proposal (eRFP). The Solver will write a preliminary proposal (about 2 – 4 pages including contact information) to be evaluated by the seeker as a possible collaboration partner. Upon completion of the evaluation, the Seeker will contact selected Solvers directly to work out terms for a collaboration contract. The monetary value of the contract will vary depending on the amount of work to be delivered and the time frame agreed upon.

(NOTE: only proposals from Solvers who have the ability to work as the collaboration partner will be considered.)
What is InnoCentive?
InnoCentive is the global innovation marketplace where creative minds solve some of the world's most important problems for cash awards up to $1 million. Commercial, governmental and humanitarian organizations engage with InnoCentive to solve problems that can impact humankind in areas ranging from the environment to medical advancements.

What is an eRFP Challenge?

eRFPs allow Seekers to submit Requests for Proposals for a partner or supplier to provide materials or expertise to help solve a business challenge to the InnoCentive Solver community. This global community includes organizations and individuals, such as contract research organizations, scientists, university researchers, and technology companies.

After a Solver submits an eRFP response, the Seeker evaluates the responses to determine which Solver(s) to contact for further business discussions. With eRFPs, the Solver must not provide any confidential information in the eRFP response. If your eRFP response is selected, you negotiate the terms of the contract (including scope of work, tasks and duration) directly with the Seeker.

This Challenge type does not require Intellectual Property (IP) transfer. However, sometimes Challenges of this type do request that certain IP arrangements be made should a partnership be formed.
