2007-09-30

 

A project of the Centre for Plant Health Management (Cephma) at the University of the Free State (UFS) has won a 2007 Technology Award presented by the National Department of Trade and Industry at the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University in Port Elizabeth. The award is in recognition of the groundbreaking research work undertaken by the UFS on kenaf, a South African commercial fibre crop used, amongst others, in the automotive industry. The research was initiated at the UFS six years ago in collaboration with the British company Sustainable Projects Development Group (SPDG) and is presently continued with the South African company Sustainable Fibre Solutions (SFS). At the awards ceremony were team members, from the left: Prof Wijnand Swart, Prof Maryke Labuschagne and Prof Schalk Louw.
