Developing disinfectant from plant waste: new research project at Jacobs University
It’s supposed to be more effective than previous products, more widely applicable and it will be obtained from plant waste such as coffee, quince or rhododendrons: researchers at Jacobs University Bremen aim to develop a new disinfectant in cooperation with the Bremen companies "ProPure – Protect" and "Just in Air". The Bremer Aufbau-Bank GmbH, a public bank of the Federal State of Bremen, promotes the research project. "We can apply our many years of research to an important topic that has become increasingly prominent with the corona crisis," says Chemistry Professor Nikolai Kuhnert. He is leading the project at Jacobs University together with his colleague Matthias Ullrich, Professor of Microbiology.
