Green or low-cost? Why not both?


About the research

Nature documentaries fascinated Sven Dierickx from an early age. Unfortunately, they always ended with the same conclusion: "environmental pollution will make these beautiful scenes disappear in the future". So Sven Dierckx is determined to be part of the solution instead of the problem! He graduated as a bio-engineer and is now pursuing his goal in a PhD on environmentally friendly detergents.
