A How-To on Protecting Innovative Ideas

+ more


Protecting new ideas, processes, and products is as important as developing them in the first place. On this episode of MarketScale’s Building Management podcast, Seckin Ozol, vice president of engineering research and development for Transhield, sat down with host Sean Heath to discuss their approach to protecting ideas and developing responsible products.

Any company that develops new iterations of its products in-house, needs to protect them.

“At this point, we either patent the material itself, where the technology is bringing some new idea to the application, or we patent the process to manufacture this fabric,” Ozol said. “By protecting this, we are adding value to our company.”

The fact that Transhield relies so heavily on “chemically impactful” materials has strengthened their resolve to be environmentally responsible, as well, according to Ozol.

“As a company in plastics and packaging, we are always a part of the equation that get criticized, in regard to the environmental footprint. As a company, about ten years ago, we patented a material and process that is 100% recyclable,” he said.

Ozol also shared the excitement that accompanies being an innovative industry leader.

“One of the best things about these productions, in R&D, is that you know that no one in the world created what you are making right now. That it’s being manufactured for the very first time and that’s a very good feeling.”
