Project Title: Greeniz SO2 free green recycling of lead poison from dead battery
ORIC-UoK helped us in understanding the importance of commercialization of our scientific research. A very energetic and supportive team of ORIC-UoK guides us about entrepreneurship through several lectures by experts. I learnt that our country can become Knowledge Economy by our own patents and its licensing. Now I am very motivated to work for Pakistan.

Working with ORIC has been an amazing new experience for us. We thank ORIC for providing us with a grand platform to put forward our idea together with guiding us at every step about how to present ourselves at our best. We were encouraged and mentored enthusiastically by the whole team to have confidence in our idea. ORiC helped us come into contact with relevent industrialists and investerors who were rightfully interested to learn and support our project. They also worked towards publicizing our idea on social media. Thank you ORIC.
We have developed portable burn bandage using some extracts of fish skin to treat small scale household burns. Because usually we treat small scale burns with topicals or toothpaste which don't ease pain and leave burn scars. This will help people who get small scale burns in daily routine, reducing pain and burn scars. Its about developing some thing you can buy from nearby drugstore to treat small degree burns. Our product “Sanitatem” is Pakistan’s first portable burn bandage.
Sanitatem Bandage helps prevent and treat wound infections in patients with serious burns. It cuts down healing time by up to several days and reduces the use of pain medication. It helps to treat household burns. It helps to remove scar marks. It is Organic Absorbs directly to skin.

We highly acknowledge all the worthiest efforts made by ORIC in escalation of our product. At the beginning, our product was just a silent idea. Nobody knew about it. But now, people not only know our product, they are curious about it. ORIC has served us a platform in presenting our product in front of the renowned Industrialists and Venture Capitalists. Furthermore, ORIC has been so helpful in the promotion of our product all over the Pakistan through social media and media coverage. We're thankful to ORIC for providing us such great opportunities. No doubt, the training and experience we had throughout our journey with ORIC will be beneficial to us in future as well.
