Procter & Gamble Donates Patents To NCSU

The Procter & Gamble Co. (P&G), Cincinnati, has donated 37 patents, patent applications and accompanying intellectual property to the North Carolina State University (NCSU) College of Textiles, Raleigh, N.C. The donated technology relates to cationic peroxide bleach activators developed by P&G that could potentially lower the temperature of the traditional cotton bleaching process, thus reducing costs and resulting in milder processing conditions and less fiber degradation.

NCSU is now sole owner of this technology and will benefit from any revenues generated through development and commercialization of the technology.

"P&G's mission is to help bring better products to the consumer," said David Kitko, Ph.D., associate director, Fabric & Home Care, P&G. "We are confident that [NCSU] is more than qualified to bring this important technology forward."
