How would you describe the main goal of your project in one sentence?

E-cover recycles tires into rubber granulates that allows sports complexes to fill their turf with a local product and of similar quality to the imported one and cement factories to replace 10% of their coal consumption with a local product that reduces 40% of their CO2 emissions.

What’s changed since your participation in Falling Walls Lab?

Falling Walls Lab gave me so much credibility that I raised 325073 Euros for the implementation of my tire recycling factory! It will reduce CO2 emissions by 11,900 tons and 822 tons less soot in the atmosphere and create 75 direct jobs and 2,000 indirect jobs over the next 5 years.

How would you describe your research style in three words?
