A team of three honour students Molecular Life Sciences at Wageningen University made it to the final of sixth edition of the Holland Chemistry Student Competition which is organized by NWO together with Holland Chemistry. Ezra Bekkering, Dorien Westert and Laura Akkerman obtained a grant for their idea to prepare a filter that adsorbs nanoplastic from aqueous streams. The internship work will be performed in the labs of Biobased Chemistry & Technology (Dr Elinor Scott) and Organic Chemistry (Dr Smulders and Dr de Smet). KWR, Royal HaskoningDHV and Wetsus have indicated to support this project and are interested in the results. ORC wishes the NanopLESStic team a lot of success with their project and looks forward to CHAINS 2019.
