Three Winners for the 2018 Air Liquide Scientific Challenge

NineSigma organized the second Air Liquide Scientific Challenge from June 2018 until January 2019 and Air Liquide has just announced the three winners.

In the context of this second edition, Air Liquide had invited teams of researchers, start-ups and private or public institutes to submit scientific research projects aimed at improving air quality and fighting climate change using the Essential Small Molecules such as oxygen, nitrogen, hydrogen, carbon dioxide, etc.

132 proposals from 34 different countries were received for three topics:

  • How to produce cost competitive hydrogen while reducing greenhouse gas emissions?
  • How to use hydrogen to avoid greenhouse gas and air pollutant emissions in fossil fuel based industrial processes?
  • Can the dietary needs of 7.6 billion people be met in an affordable, healthy and sustainable manner?

The winners come from Spain (José Manuel Serra Alfaro from the Instituto de Tecnología Química), Switzerland (Christophe Coperet from the ETH Zurich) and China (Wenbiao Shen from the Nanjing Agricultural University).
