Solving the problems of sustainability in every aspect of life, using green resources for basic activities from handwash, to space propulsion, to green circular energy systems.

Hands on Involvement

SolvGE believes in unity. Unity of the team, unity with customers, and unity with SolvGE’s mission.

Equality

Everyone working together are considered equal in terms of idea values, along with work and social environments within and outside the company.

Our Mission

Global accessibility to green energy for every inhabitant in the world is essential to ensure the progress of humanity, here on Earth and even beyond to space. SolvGE will enable people to use basic resources such as water and sunlight to provide themselves with sustainable means of energy production, storage, and generation for versatile applications. Using one green resource for many applications, just Hydrogen Peroxide, as a method of not only accessing green energy but also as a means of disinfectants, bleaching, and oxidizing agent, and much more.

Coming from India, Pranav completed his bachelor’s degree from the Aerospace Engineering Faculty at TU Delft. He is currently pursuing his Master's in Space Engineering and also involved in research of “Hydrogen Peroxide – as green energy system” and has also obtained a patent filing and journal publication from his work on H2O2 concentration.

He has spent 6 months of internship at the E-Space Center at Lausanne, Switzerland, along with an internship at the Indian Space Research Organisation, Bengaluru, India.

Nico Hiemstra

Nico Hiemstra

Chemical Engineering Intern

Nico has always had a strong interest in chemistry. He obtained his bachelor's degree in molecular science and technology. This program is a joint degree between TU Delft and the Leiden university, combining the technical knowledge in Delft with the Chemistry knowledge in Leiden. Followed by a master's in Chemical Engineering at the TU Delft.

During his studies, he followed the Chemical product engineering track. Focusing on the utilization of advanced chemical products in the chemical industry. It sparked his interest in the energy transition and the utilization of renewable techniques in the chemical industry. He performed his master thesis in the product and process engineering group at the TU Delft. He worked on the optimization of particle photocatalysts for hydrogen gas production.

Tommy Borsboom

Tommy Borsboom

Propulsion Engineer

Since his childhood, Tommy has been interested in rockets and spaceflights. It started from reading books about the Apollo program and the Space Shuttle to the launch of the Dutch astronaut, André Kuipers in 2004. He obtained his bachelor’s degree in aeronautical engineering from the University of Applied Sciences Inholland Delft. During his internship at the Innovation Studio of Inholland Delft, Tommy designed a solid rocket motor. The graduation internship of aeronautical engineering took place at Stellar Space Industries, where he did a preliminary design of sub-systems: Attitude Determination Control System, Power Control System, Telecommunication and Payload for a CubeSat equipped with an electric propulsion system.

Currently, he is a master's student in the field of space flight engineering at TU Delft. His thesis focuses on the design of the injector for a propulsion system. Being part of the SolvGE team, developing an advanced hypergolic propulsion system is a dream coming true.

Larissa Arif

Larissa Arif

Product Designer

Larissa came from Indonesia, obtaining her bachelor's degree in Industrial Design Engineering at The Hague University of Applied Sciences. With a passion to design for impact, Larissa has Research and Developing experiences in start-up companies valuing sustainability. From plastic waste solution to providing accessible green energy for the festival industry.

Larissa was granted by The Hague University of Applied Sciences to participate in The European Innovation Academy 2019 in Portugal. The entrepreneurship program led her into being one of the Co-founders and Chief Design Officer of Urbanbee, focusing on the awareness of the bee population and safe urban beekeeping. With over 1300 participants and 90+ start-ups, her start-up made it into the Top 10.

Andreas de Roos

Andreas de Roos

Chemical Propulsion Researcher

Andreas has been fascinated his whole life by both the very small and the very large. To study both simultaneously, he chose to pursue two academic careers: one in Aerospace Engineering at TU Delft and another one in Chemistry at Utrecht University. He is currently on track for cum laude graduation for both a Master’s degree in Space Engineering at TU Delft and one in Nanomaterials Science at Utrecht University. Andreas will be conducting his Master’s thesis at SolvGE. In this time, he will focus mainly on developing a regenerative and sustainable, yet economical catalyst for inducing hypergolicity in hydrogen peroxide for space propulsion.

Nanda Vinod

Nanda Vinod

Propulsion Intern

Nanda is an aerospace enthusiast and soon-to-be final year undergraduate in aerospace engineering at IIT Kharagpur (India), hailing from the state of Kerala in India. Books and movies introduce her to space flight and technology and have aspired her to work in the field ever since.

In her previous work, she worked on hyperloop aerodynamics and shape optimization of the hyperloop pod. Control systems and Propulsion form two of her favorite domains in aerospace.

Apart from that, She is a coordinator at the robotics club at IIT Kharagpur and has been involved in multiple projects/workshops related to the same.

Pieter Pinson

Pieter Pinson

Propulsion Research Engineer

From a young age it was already clear Pieter really liked engineering, making chain reactions and developing devices at home. As a bachelor student mechanical engineering at the TU Delft, Pieter has tried to develop himself in the most broad way possible. He can’t stand still and am always busy, doing (or watching) sports or other activities, such as soccer. Being part of several committees in the student community next to his studies for example, helped in gaining organizational skills. When doing the spaceflight minor however, Pieter really enjoyed the topic of space engineering and so he fully delved into it by doing the master subsequently. After a successful first year doing this master, Pieter performed an internship at DLR in Stuttgart. At DLR, Pieter learned more about interesting projects within the space industry and conducted experimental research. Pieter's  task was to characterize a miniature arcjet that is used for tests on ablative material mounted on re-entry vehicles.

"SolvGE was exactly what I was looking for and I am happy with the opportunity and to continue with my engineering  aspiration. I am more focussed now on finishing my studies and am very excited to work on such an interesting topic."

The Future of Green Energy

SolvGE is introducing a revolutionary technology that will allow accessible green circular energy storage and generation system.

Let’s make a change together for a better future.
