Iranian inventor merited in US INPEX 2017

Tehran, July 11, IRNA – An Iranian inventor won the Merit Award and the Gold Medal Award of Merit at INPEX 2017 showcase in Pittsburgh, the US among 800 participants from 40 countries.

The award has been presented to Khalil Nazari for invention of HL herbal glue, which can replace oil mulch and help with solving the problem of urban haze.

INPEX is America's Largest Invention Trade Show that is held every year. INPEX show offers a distinct venue where inventors can exhibit their inventions and try to meet up with companies interested in licensing, marketing or manufacturing new product ideas. The trade show also hosts contests for domestic and international inventors from more than 40 categories.

The INPEX 2017 was held on June 13-15, 2017 at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center in Pittsburgh, US.

Nazari told IRNA on Saturday that HL herbal glue is a plant-based material which is an environment-friendly replacement for oil mulch to solve the problem of particle pollution.

“Oil mulch is made of waste oil in fractionating column. It covers the sand dunes like a flexible film and temporarily stabilizes them. However, in addition to being valuable and expensive, oil mulch reeks and raises the regional heat, and consequently, makes the wind hot and odorous. It also destroys the region’s animal and plant life,” added Nazari.

The Tabriz-based chemistry specialist said that the new invention is plant-based, odorless, colorless, and non-flammable. It doesn’t pollute the subterranean waters and when being applied, it is cool so it doesn’t hurt the environment and insects, so it can serve as a substitute for the oil-based mulch.
