Solar car TU Eindhoven wins World Solar Challenge for the fourth time in a row

20 – 10 – 2019
Adelaide, October 20, 2019 – Solar Team Eindhoven from the Eindhoven University of Technology has won the first prize in the Cruiser Class of the Bridgestone World Solar Challenge (BWSC) for the fourth time in a row. We completed the more than 3,000-kilometer drive from Darwin to Adelaide with the highest efficiency score of all teams. Also on the assessment of the solar car by a professional jury, yesterday, we scored 93.1 points.

This makes us the consecutive winner of all editions of the Cruiser Class since it was founded in 2013. The class was introduced in 2013 to bridge the gap between the well-known World Solar Challenge and the use of cars in daily life. The new class was meant to close that gap and the innovations from the World Solar Challenge really find their way into the automotive sector. In the Cruiser Class not necessarily the fastest car wins, but the one that excels in efficiency, comfort, design and innovations.

Highest score for efficiency and innovation

We achieved a total score of 103.9 points, of which 111.7 points for efficiency and 93.1 for comfort and innovations. After we crossed the finish line on Friday at 11.30 a.m. (local time), we presented the practical utility, comfort and technical innovations on Saturday to a jury among which were Tesla and Lightyear. The practicality is particularly important because it weighs equally heavy as the efficiency score. With unique features such as autonomously chasing the sun and the sharing of solar energy with other electric cars, Solar Team Eindhoven with their four-person solar car, Stella Era, achieved great success.

Challenges

The team was extra euphoric because we had serious setbacks. For example, Stella Era arrived with a damaged solar panel in Darwin and we had problems with the electrical system two weeks before the start, the cause of which was initially unknown. Carijn Mulder, team manager, says: “Due to the setbacks in the preparation, we missed a lot of test days, so we were unsure of what awaited us during the Challenge.”

Moreover, the strong headwind on the longest stage of 1200 kilometers was quite a challenge. The team had to bridge that distance on a single battery charge. Solar Team Eindhoven was one of the two teams that completed this stage on time and they managed to avoid a time penalty.

Fourth victory

In her victory speech during the Award Ceremony, Carijn proudly spoke about the challenges the team has overcome. “It was certainly not obvious that we could become world champions for the fourth time. All challenges have kept the team sharp during the preparations and the race until the last moment. We are all very proud of our high scores and the victory ”.

The students drove at an average speed of almost 80 km/h and charged an additional 71.24 kWh over the entire distance via a charging station. For comparison: an ordinary electric car, without solar panels, has to charge about ten times as much energy.

BTEXCO Baselayer wear test in War Child Kilimanjaro Project

Early after the CNY, BTEXCO received comments on its anti–odor baselayer after a wear test used in the War Child Kilimanjaro 2018 program.

“Dear John and Julian,

Please find pictures of the young lady we sponsored to climb the Kilimanjaro for Warchild.
She used the coconut underwear for the whole journey of 6 days and she made a report that was very good. 10/10, comfortable, warm and no bad smells.
With the Team of 10 young people that climbed the mountain, they gained € 60.000 for the Warchild organization.

Thanks for your help to make the samples!

Met vriendelijke groet, Best Regards

Reg ”

1. Coconut Shell Charcoal Production
Coconut is a tropical plant whose shell is of no great use except for use as daily necessaries or art crafts. The production of coconut shell charcoal by utilization of the waste is a proactive eco concept.

Activated carbon will be created by heating the coconut shell fiber up to a temperature of 1200-1600 °C with the application of water vapor as activator. With an apparent size of more than 0.18mm (around 80 mesh), such particle-shaped activated carbon is also used in the purification of water and air.

2. Use of Coconut Shell Charcoal

Though the production of coconut shell activated carbon is costly, in addition to use in the purification of waste water from industrial activities and daily life, it is also used in the purification of tap water and other drinking water and also in the creation of purified water.
It is also recently being used in textile products,

3.Deodorization
Coconut shell charcoal absorbs odor through its surface. The surface area of 1 gram of coconut shell charcoal amounts to around 900-2000 m2 equivalent to the area of 4 basket ball courts. Such numerous micro pores will form a mechanism to absorb odor, stink and other toxic substance.

The finer the coconut charcoal particles are, the more pores the coconut shell charcoal will contain. The absorption of odor by coconut shell charcoal will not be reduced after grinding. This is why fine particles of coconut shell charcoal (normally submicron particles) provides extremely strong odor absorption.

4.Release of Anion
Both graphite structure (SP2) and diamond structure (SP3) exist in coconut shell charcoal. When friction with air is activated, electrons will be released into air (oxygen molecule). The positive charge thus released will create anion when the positive charge is being grounded via the conductive graphite structure. Anion provides microbe inhibition by nature.

5. Odor decomposition
Odor molecules will not be decomposed until and unless anions are created. This is why odor cannot be decomposed with activated carbon only.

Anions, as highly active oxygen molecule, will interact easily with odor molecules to result in oxygenation (combustion) whereby odor molecules are decomposed.
Coconut shell charcoal polyester normally contain 650 anions per cm3.

7.Dodorization compared with bamboo charcoal
Activated coconut shell charcoal provides better deodorization since its surface area is much greater than bamboo charcoal.
As activated coconut shell charcoal is made of coconut shell waste, it is widely accepted in North America and Europe as an ECO product.

8.Release of Far Infrared Ray
Release of FIR results in the oscillatory motion of particular molecules stimulated by heat. Any structure has a resonant oscillation frequency, i.e. frequencies at which the response amplitude is a relative maximum.

The diamond structure in coconut shell charcoal will create oscillatory motions when stimulated by heat. As its resonant oscillation frequency is precisely within the range of FIR( with a wave length of more than 4 micrometer), coconut shell charcoal will create the same effect of FIR when heated. The FIR emissivity of coconut shell charcoal polyester is normally more than 0.9.

9.Advantages of coconut shell charcoal fabrics
With coconut shell charcoal particles inside the fiber, fabrics made of coconut shell charcoal polyester will maintain its activity even after its use in finished garment. The coconut shell charcoal in the fiber will form a micro porous and moisture conductive surface to provide moisture management, dry and deodorization functions.
