Turning food waste into nano-fibres
18 September 2014
A partnership between motor manufacturer, maxon motor uk, and Saeed Mohan, a post-graduate student at the University of Reading has developed an exciting new green material from food waste.
Mohan first contacted maxon motor uk when he was looking for a high speed DC motor with a DC motor controller, capable of variable speed.
"I liked the idea that maxon had a motor and controller package that made it fairly simple to get started," he said. "I used the brushless EC-max 30 motor, together with the ESCON controller as I was looking for up to 10,000rpm (the ESCON is capable of 150,000rpm).”
