The following businesses and startups have been awarded at BUE for their distinction at BUE Innovate II Competition:
The project is based on friction stir welding technology either by providing a welding service for different kinds of industries or by providing design and manufacturing of FSW machine for companies, universities, technical schools, and research institutes. We will also offer training and technical support for FSW technology.
Search engine for medicines connects between pharmacies and patients online, where the patients search for medicines and find the nearby pharmacy at the same moment of searching.

Why do we use dangerous fertilizers that have a bad effect on the environment when natural alternative its sources is household waste is safe fertilizers with the minor cost?
– Importance of the research:
- Adjusting the acidic PH of the sandy soil by using egg crack and increase calcium nutrients in the soil.
- Recycling household like tea, coffee and egg cracks to reduce using chemical fertilizers hence producing a natural relatively cheap fertilizer.
- Produce crops that don’t have a bad effect on humans in the long term as artificial fertilizers do where: –
– Chemical fertilizer: that produces crops contain hazard substance such as Anhydrous Ammonium which is very harmful to human tissues.
– Manure fertilizers: that comes from animal sources, these animals feed on grass and food which contain pesticides and of course, traces of those pesticides will be in the stool of that animal
- Awareness to the huge danger of the fertilizer on the environment concerning water pollution (rivers-underground water).
– Research objectives:
1-Produce friendly environment fertilizer with minor cost of household.
2-Adjust the acidity of the sandy soil using egg cracks for more desert and land reclamation.
3- Adjusting the fertility of salty, alkaline and sandy soils using the natural fertilizer of tea and coffee wastes.
4- On the financial side, reduce the huge costs spent on manufacturing and importing the artificial fertilizers.
– Research methodology
They started their experiment at British university’s Pharmacognosy labs and distributed surveys in 4 plantations.
They concluded that the egg crack can improve the sandy soil fertility by adjusting its acidic PH and increase the fertility of both sandy and alkaline salty soils by tea and coffee household wastes.
