Nejc Hodnik has a "Platinum" idea at the Falling Walls Lab Ljubljana

The Falling Walls Lab Ljubljana was hosted by the University of Ljubljana on 22 September 2016 and featured a wide array of ideas.

The presenters pitched their ideas from different fields of research and society in 3 minutes each. A distinguished jury made up of representatives from academia and industry selected the most intriguing presentation. 

The winner of the Falling Walls Lab Ljubljana will travel to Berlin and participate in the global Lab Finale on 8 November 2016. The winner will also receive a ticket for the Falling Walls Conference on 9 November 2016 within the scope of an A.T. Kearney scholarship.

Meet the winner

1. Place: Nejc Hodnik, Slovenia, National Institute of Chemistry - Breaking the wall of Hazardous Noble Metal Recycling

Due to the extreme resistance of Platinum to corrosion, hazardous and polluting strategies are needed. As Platinum is at the same time scarce and increasingly in demand the development of a new recycling way is paramount.
