We are delighted to announce that Biomembrane SAVER, an invention of a research group led by Prof. Katja Loos, has won the People’s Choice Award for KIJK’s best Tech-idea. Prof. Katja Loos is the Scientific Coordinator of the Honours Master 'High Tech Systems and Materials (HTSM)' programme. With no less than 3,600 votes, SAVER 19 left other ideas far behind. In November, KIJK will be paying extensive attention to SAVER. Biomembrance SAVER is a membrane made from natural components that is able to separate oil from water. This technology can be used in the clean-up of oil spills and is fully recyclable. In addition to the research group of polymer scientists led by Prof Katja Loos, Biomembrane SAVER was codeveloped by researchers from NHL Stenden University of Applied Sciences.
Thank you all for your votes and congratulations to the whole research team!
