Hugo Junkers awards for vegan imitation leather and emission-free engine

December 06, 2019


Abstract : Vegan "leather", emission-free engines, a new approach to the treatment of dementia and a car scanner are the most innovative developments to have been created in the German state of Saxony-Anhalt this year.

Vegan "leather", emission-free engines, a new approach to the treatment of dementia and a car scanner are the most innovative developments to have been created in the German state of Saxony-Anhalt this year. This was the conclusion reached by the jury of the Hugo-Junkers Prize, awarded by the state’s science minister, Armin Willingmann, a member of the Social Democrats (SPD) on Wednesday in Dessau-Rosslau.

The vegan "leather" is produced from bacteria cultures without the use of any animal products or chemical additives. It can be processed industrially just like leather, but is completely compostable. The Leipzig company ScobyTec, which wants to produce the artificial leather in Saxony-Anhalt, received the prize in the product development category.

The prize in the applied research category went to a company based in Dessau-Rosslau, WTZ, for the development of a hydrogen-powered closed-loop engine that works completely emission-free and, according to the jury, could soon be "the missing link in the energy revolution."

The German Centre for Neurodegenerative Diseases was awarded the Junkers Prize for fundamental research. The researchers from Magdeburg identified a substance that can contribute to the healing of memory impairment. The prize for the most innovative project in the field of mobility went to Twinner, a company based in Halle. The company has designed a scanner that captures high-resolution images of cars from the inside and outside and is thus able to create images down to the minutest detail.

The Hugo-Junkers Prize is endowed with a total of 80,000 euros. In addition to the winners in each category, there were also awards for the second and third place winners. 79 projects had applied. The awards have been presented by the state of Saxony-Anhalt for innovative research ideas for 28 years.
