MESA+ Young Business Award 2012

At the annual MESA+ meeting, the Young Business Award 2012 was awarded to Bram Verhaagen and David Fernandez Rivas, PhD-students at the Physics of Fluids and the Mesoscale Chemical Systems group, respectively. During a 3 minute pitch, they presented their business idea ‘BµBCLEAN’ for cleaning surfaces that are difficult to clean, using a novel technique that can generate microbubbles in a controlled way. A three-person jury considered this idea the most promising one in terms of applicability, scalability and ease of entering the market.
