Delft Outlook December 2013

In this issue of Delft Outlook, the science and alumni magazine of TU Delft, art historian Timo de Rijk, the victory of Nuna7, 3D reproduction of paintings and less heat loss through the organic rankine cycle.

Between art and kitsch
The technique which the TU Delft and Canon-Océ developed for making relief reproductions of paintings received extensive news coverage in late September. Art experts frowned on it. 

Art historian Timo de Rijk: ‘We plant the seed
Art historian Timo de Rijk was appointed Professor of Design, Culture and Society in Delft and Leiden last September. He calls this combination ‘a real breakthrough’. ‘Leiden University studies the workings of culture, while TU Delft aims at creating new things. These are fundamentally different approaches. I am the bridge between the two.’ 

Profit from heat
Quite a bit of heat is lost in industry and on the road. A technique that involves using residual heat has been attracting more and more interest. 

Nuna7: smart and fast
After two silver medals, the students of the Nuon Solar team once again won the gold medal at the World Solar Challenge held this autumn. This was thanks in part to a “bloody clever” interpretation of the rules.

The Firm: Biogas
Earning money while helping people in developing countries. The SimGas company, which was founded by the brothers Sanne and Mirik Castro, would like to prove that that is possible. SimGas manufactures, sells and installs biogas systems.

The View: Down with garbage
In twenty years, there will be almost no more garbage in Europe. Professor of Resources and Recycling Peter Rem thinks that in the future we will reuse almost everything.
