Dr. Katrin Schuhen
Inventor, Founder, CEO at Wasser 3.0 gGmbH
After completing her doctorate in chemistry in 2007 (Ruprecht-Karls University, Heidelberg), Dr. Schuhen worked in medical technology and in the polymer-producing industry before setting up her own research group as part of her Junior Professorship for Organic and Ecological Chemistry at the University of Koblenz-Landau, Germany (2012- 2018). Since then she has been working on new material classes for the removal of microplastics and micropollutants from all kinds of water as well as on their detection, reuse and the possibilities of digitized process control. In May 2020, she founded Wasser 3.0 gGmbH as a non-profit GreenTech company working for waters without microplastics and micropollutans in R&D and education.
