Bart received his M.Sc. degree in Chemical Engineering, with a focus on Molecular Engineering from Delft University of Technology in 2011. He then went on to work for Dr Ten B.V., a small company working in the fields of food, water and energy to develop smart technologies for people less fortunate. Bart’s focus was mainly on the development the of cheap and environmentally sound Seasalt battery. In 2014 Dr Ten entered a cooperation with the CAES group of the UTwente and Bart got the opportunity to become a Ph.D. candidate at the University of Twente. He is currenly working in the Smart Grid Evolution project, with the intention to further develop the Seasalt battery and to test that battery in real life situations.
