Known new technologies
These are technologies that are not commonly used in practise, or whereof only a few implemented applications are known. This type of technology is in fact often known at knowlegde institutions or high tech innovative entrepeneurs. This technology is on the tipping point of a break through, or is in the middle of the Valley of Death. These kind of technologies are far from mainstream. Often there is a limited number of mechanists known or it is possible to start experimenting with pilot facilities. Also you often see that these technologies are patented. An example of a known new technology is Pascalisation (HPP).
