Dutch Research Council Veni grant for Robin de Kruijff

The Dutch Research Council (NWO) has awarded a Veni grant to researcher Robin de Kruijff of the Reactor Institute Delft (RID) for her research on a new type of radionuclide generator which, among other things, can obviate the global bottleneck in cancer research. The new generator will, moreover, be the first recyclable one of its kind. “I hope that my new type of generator will ultimately make diagnostic treatments much more accessible and less dependent on a handful of reactors”, says De Kruijff.

TU Delft and TNO prepare industry for scale-up phase of clean factory

TU Delft and TNO prepare industry for scale-up phase of clean factory

Oil and gas shortages are not only pushing up the prices of gas and petrol, but also plastics, medicines and cosmetics. To make our society less dependent on fossil fuels and combat climate change, the chemical industry needs to change radically. In recent years, TU Delft and TNO have laid the foundation for cleaner production processes in the chemical industry. The new e-Chem partnership is now taking this a step further by actually constructing a clean factory of the future.

Rocket launch 1st April: sending graphene into space for the first time

Rocket launch 1st April: sending graphene into space for the first time

Friday 1st April is a big day for the study of 2D materials (and no joke): a SpaceX rocket launch will take place that includes a research satellite which contains the first graphene conductors ever to enter space, made in Delft. In two months’ time, we will know how graphene behaves in space. What made it possible: the discovery by TU Delft researchers how to protect the graphene from environmental influences.
