New materials for sustainable respiratory masks

Health - Apr 19

The Technische Universität Ilmenau is developing new materials for sustainable and resource-saving respiratory masks. In contrast to the masks commonly used during the coronavirus pandemic, the new materials should make it possible for masks to be used several times. This would save considerable amounts of "medical waste" and make the supply of masks much cheaper for consumers. The InnoMask research project, which has just been launched, is being funded by the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Protection with 1.1 million euros over three years.
