Cathode Ray Challenge #2:  New Uses for Recycled Glass

TAGS:Business/Entrepreneurship Engineering/Design Physical Sciences
STATUS: Awarded
ACTIVE SOLVERS: 577
POSTED: 4/01/13

The Consumer Electronics Association®(CEA), in conjunction with the Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries (ISRI), seeks to identify financially viable, environmentally conscious proposals for utilizing recycled Cathode-Ray-Tube (CRT) glass from used televisions and computer monitors.  Key considerations for this Challenge are the fact that the CRT glass contains a significant concentration of lead, and that CEA is particularly interested in receiving submissions proposing uses for this lead-containing glass, as this may lead to the most financially viable solutions. 

The Seeker may be interested in pursuing further collaboration with Solvers whose solutions they find promising. 

This Challenge requires only a written proposal.

Challenge Overview

The Consumer Electronics Association®(CEA), in conjunction with the Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries (ISRI), seeks to identify financially viable, environmentally conscious proposals for utilizing recycled Cathode-Ray-Tube (CRT) glass from used televisions and computer monitors.  Key considerations for this Challenge are the fact that the CRT glass contains a significant concentration of lead, and that CEA is particularly interested in receiving submissions proposing uses for this lead-containing glass, as this may lead to the most financially viable solutions. 

The Seeker may be interested in pursuing further collaboration with Solvers whose solutions they find promising. 

To receive an award, the Solvers will not have to transfer their exclusive IP rights to the Seeker.  Instead, they will grant to the Seeker non-exclusive license to practice their solutions. 

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 a Theoretical-Licensing Challenge?

An InnoCentive Theoretical Challenge implements an idea but is not yet a proof of concept. A solution to a Theoretical Challenge will solidify the Solver's concept with detailed descriptions, specifications and requirements necessary to bringing a good idea closer to becoming an actual product or service.

This Challenge is a Theoretical-Licensing Challenge, meaning that the Seeker is requesting non-exclusive rights to use the winning solution. By contrast, Theoretical-IP Transfer means that Solvers must relinquish all rights to the Intellectual Property (IP) for which they are awarded. For both forms of a theoretical Challenge, solvers that do not win retain the rights to their solution after the evaluation period is complete. The Seeker retains no rights to any IP not awarded.
