He is one of Sweden’s most innovative entrepreneurs

Simon Isaksson, researcher at Department of Physics at Chalmers, has received ÅForsk’s annual scholarship for entrepreneurs. ​
He is one of ten Swedish entrepreneurs selected, and the innovation is named Aquammodate. The concept is based on a water purification filter with high selectivity and 100 times lower energy consumption. The scholarship of SEK 200,000 aims to support the entrepreneur to realise the business concept. 

“This is really encouraging. Our water treatment membrane will be able to remove even small molecules like pharmaceutical waste and hormone-like substances from the water to be treated,” says Simon Isaksson who is also part of a Chalmers Ventures collaboration. 

Among the ten selected entrepreneurs, Johanna Nissén Karlsson and Wissam Aoudi also represent Chalmers and Chalmers Ventures.
