Revolutionary Israeli Co Signs $8 Million Packaging Deal with Pepsi

Wednesday, May 9th, 2012

Oplon Pure Science, a Rehovot-based developer of anti-bacterial polymer sheets for packaging, has signed an $8 million contract with the Pepsi Corporation to supply packaging solutions for their products, according to No Camels.

The revolutionary Oplon packaging aims to protect foods from the colonization of microbes without the use of chemical preservatives or anti-biotics.  The Oplon website states that an open container of milk with Oplon coating on the packaging can stay at room temperature for a month rather than a day, and could soon be used to sterilize medical tools, treat dermatological conditions, and assist in healing of wounds.

“Oplon’s antimicrobial coatings are an advanced composition of polyelectrolytes contained within a polymer matrix. On contact with liquids, a surface electric field is created, which disrupts cell membranes safely, effectively and inexpensively,” the company said on its website. “Based on this physical phenomenon, Oplon’s coatings act as an electric shield that kills yeast, mold, bacteria and certain viruses – disrupting and destroying them upon contact.”

The company noted that its materials “are non-toxic, environmentally friendly, and do not leach or release chemicals.”

Israeli Innovations: Helping the High-Tech and the Under-Privileged

Thursday, January 19th, 2012

A slew of new Israeli innovations are set to make life more convenient – and more viable – all over the world.

Israeli company Lumus has created a set of translucent television glasses which allow the wearer to see high-quality, full-color images such as e-mail, images, and text documents while walking or performing other tasks.

According to a report in Britain’s Daily Mail, the new PD-18-2 capitalizes on Lumus’s special cutting-edge visual technology called Light-guide Optical Element (LOE), which is already in use in professional and military products for soldiers, surgeons and pilots, projecting images into the eye from a micro-display.

Helping the multi-tasker keep up with his various to-dos is the goal of Any.DO, an Israeli social to-do app voted best Android application of 2011 by the Techcrunch blog, Lightbox, and Amazon MP3.

Any.DO has the basic features of a calendar, while also allowing users to add tasks through auto-complete and voice commands, manage them through gestures such as swiping and dragging-and-dropping, and sync with Google tasks, according to Israel innovations website NoCamels.

Israeli technology is also coming to the aid of those who do not yet enjoy the luxury of high-tech gadgets.  Agro-biotech company Rosetta Green, based in Rehovot, has genetically modified plants to grow under ocean water irrigation and to withstand long and severe droughts.  According to No Camels, the company hopes to produce plants which will stand up to harsh climates while maintaining bountiful yields by modifying short RNA molecules associated with a plant’s genetic ability to withstand drought or salty water.
