Our Green Ambassadors:

Architectural Engineering

Julie Rønholt                              Rasmus Nøddegaard Hansen

julie.roenholt@hotmail.com       rasmus0306@hotmail.com

Mia Heide

mia.heide93@gmail.com

Julie, Mia and Rasmus won 2nd place at Green Challenge 2018 with their project ”Utilizing Recycled Plastic in Local Low-Tech Production of Construction Materials”. The method shows potential in producing construction materials with recycled plastic, which then we can use for smaller constructions, playgrounds, etc. in developing countries, where construction materials are not economically possible and plastic waste is a problem.

Biotechnology

Kristoffer Falkenberg

kristoffer@bachfalkenberg.dk

Kristoffer won 3rd place at Green Challenge 2015 with his project "Syngas Fermentation - Growing Bacteria on CO2". His project explores how to produce syngas of organic material and use it as fuel and pharmaceuticals.

Design and innovation

Andreas Aabo

andreasaabo@gmail.com

Andreas won 1st place at Green Challenge 2016 with his project "Self-healing Asphalt". His project is to develop an asphalt mix, which can repair itself with the aid of induction heating. This can triple the life expectancy of the road.

Kathrine Hagen

S143995@student.dtu.dk

Kathrine won 1st place at Green Challenge 2017 with her project "From Plastic Waste to Tile". Her project is to convert soft wrapping to the brick, which we then can use to build restrooms with in the villages of India and reduce the amount of plastic waste.

Environmental Engineering

Cecile Kittel

ceki@env.dtu.dk

Cecile won 3rd place at Green Challenge 2017 with her project "Informing a Hydrological Model of the Ogooué with Multi-Mission Remote Sensing". Her project explores how to identify the hydrological system of the river with the help of a hydrological modeling programme with satellite data remote sensing.

Peter Alexander Stentoft

S113327@student.dtu.dk

Peter won 1st place at Green Challenge 2017 with his project "Green Treatment of Black Water". His project presents a predictive control strategy, which reduces power consumption from wastewater treatment and makes it a greener process.

August Axel Zachariae               Monika Skadborg

S144116@win.dtu.dk                 monika.skadborg@gmail.com

Astrid Kjeldgaard

s136423@win.dtu.dk

August, Astrid and Monika won 2nd place at Green Challenge 2018 with their project “Energy Efficiency Improvements in 5G Mobile Networks”. The project uses bacteria to absorb nutritional components in waste products such as urine and produce a high quality protein suitable for animal feed. We then recycle nutritional components, which would else have been wasted.

Food Technology

Pia Fiil Christensen               Sara Aaslet

S093934@student.dtu.dk     S104908@student.dtu.dk

Pia and Sara won 3rd place at Green Challenge 2017 with their project "Sediefilm". Their project presents degradable and edible films, which we can use for wrapping food and reduce the production of plastic waste from the food industry.

Carmen Masiá

cmasiacala@gmail.com

Carmen won 1st place at Green Challenge 2018 with her project “CheeseItYourself: Revaluation of a food by-product with a minimum footprint”. CheeseIt! aims to revaluate food waste by turning legumes’ by-product into vegan cheese. Its production ensures low energy consumption and low carbon footprint, reducing CO2 emissions regarding transportation and storage due to its format. 

 

Gérault-Landry Eggermont

 

Gerault-landry@hotmail.com

 

Gérault-Landry won 3rd place at Green Challenge 2018 with his project ”ProFlakes – A BSG Cereal”. By using spent grains, a waste stream of the beer industry, we can make a tasty breakfast cereal, which is full of taste and high in fibers.

 

Mathematical Modeling and Computation

Jens Moll-Elsborg

S134775@student.dtu.dk

Jens won 2nd place at Green Challenge 2017 with his project "Three Elements for an Even Playing Field". The concept of his project is to enforce the 2020 regulations on fuel SOx content in transport on and in water.

Molecular Biomedicine (University of Copenhagen)

Matias Ankjær

matiasankjaer@gmail.com

Matias won 2nd place at Green Challenge 2018 with his project “T\Tabs Diagnostics”. The project’s product is soluble tablets for the toilet, which can detect early stage intestinal cancer via biomarkers in the faeces. The goal is to create a user-friendly alternative to the existing screening programme, which only 60% chooses to do, and in this way increase the survival rate for cancer patients.

Process and Innovation

Asbjørn Høj Christensen

asbjornhch@gmail.com

Asbjørn won 2nd place at Green Challenge 2017 with his project "AgroPrint". His project presents The SeedPrinter1, a driverless and eco-friendly seed drill. With its extreme precision, it can replace the farmer and save him from physical work and valuable time.

 

Nicolas Dandanell

nicolasmbdandanell@gmail.com

Nicolas won 3rd place at Green Challenge 2017 with his project "Food to Fungus". The project introduces a way of growing fungi on food residues, which will reduce the amount of food waste.

 

Jacob Thisted                         Mine Lisberg

s175043@student.dtu.dk       s160128@student.dtu

Jacob and Mine won 1st place at Green Challenge 2018 with their project “HyphaBox”. By growing mycelium in a figure, Jacob and Mine presented a sustainable product, which can replace the not so sustainable polystyrene boxes.

Physics and nanotechnology

Anneline Hegelund Christensen

S141127@student.dtu.dk

Anneline won 1st place at Green Challenge 2016 with her project "Optimal Flow through a Humidity Induced Convection Pump". Her project is to model the occupant's structure in a steam convection pump, which will then have the potential to become a new form of renewable energy.

Technical biomedicine

Aleksander Haack                     Cecilie Knudsen 

S153292@student.dtu.dk          nzj892@alumni.ku.dk

Rasmus Friis                              Søren Dam

s154269@student.dtu.dk           s153398@student.dtu.dk

Aleksander, Cecilie, Rasmus and Søren won 1st place at Green Challenge 2017 with their project "Venom Detection Kit". Their project is to develop a diagnostic tool for the identification of poison in blood samples and then provide the correct antidote.

Markus Fritz Hansen

s154379@student.dtu.dk

Markus won 3rd place at Green Challenge 2018 with his project “Clean and Affordable Energy – by Hydrogen and Fuel Cells”. The project deals with fuel cells (which is a green energy technology) and the metal we use when building stacks of them. The metals are specially made due to the harsh environment they have to operate in and are therefore very expensive. Markus’ project uses cheaper metals and tests different types of coating to make them tough enough to operate with, and then fuel cells will be cheaper to produce and competitive to alternative energy technologies.

Telecommunication

Theis R. Wollesen

green.challenge.theis@gmail.com

Theis won 1st place at Green Challenge 2018 with his project ”Energy Efficiency Improvements in 5G Mobile Networks”. The project is to reduce the energy consumption in base stations by adjusting the capacity and coverage based on the level of demand of the mobile network.
