Sander De Vrieze is a visionary textile engineer, who obtained his PhD in 2010.
Sander works almost 9 years at Centexbel, as a consultant for intellectual property and fibres. In these years, he helped small and large companies alike with all their innovative textile challenges.
Sander helped the Belgian company Biobest with an innovation to build fibrous homes for predatory mites.
Sander sees this as a key example how textile engineers can assist non-textile companies with finding textile solutions for their problems.
