Car pool with hydrogen cars launched at KTH
Now all KTH employees who want to drive a hydrogen-powered electric car can do just that. On KTH Campus, there are five Toyota Mirai that can be used via the KINTO app – both for work and privately. The new Mirai is the second generation of Toyota's fuel cell car. The tanks hold 5.6 kilograms of hydrogen, take five minutes to refuel and, according to the company, the car has a range of up to 600 kilometers.
The fact that the first new hydrogen cars ended up at KTH is due to an initiative from Göran Lindbergh, professor in applied electrochemistry.
CBH student receives Professor Wallquist’s Study Medal
Moira Ek, a doctoral student in Protein Engineering and a former Master’s student in biotechnology, has been awarded Professor Wallquist's study medal. This is the first time since the school merger that a CBH student has received the award.
”It feels great! But that is probably the answer you usually get to that question,” says Moira Ek.
At the moment, it can take a long time to get a new computer, monitor or other IT product due to the lack of materials that prevails internationally. The forecast is that this will continue during the remainder of 2021 and probably also during parts of 2022.
Under certain circumstances, the period of doctoral studies and employment as a doctoral student may be extended as a result of COVID-19.
Environment and sustainable development
The CBH School works actively for a sustainable development on several levels. Our research and education contribute to the UN Sustainable Development Goals, we have an environmental management system and is a workplace that strives for increased sustainability in our daily processes.
