Limburg face masks on Economic Affairs shortlist, with support from UM institute

The ‘Limburg Face Masks Team’ (Team Limburgse Mondkapjes), in cooperation with the UM institute AMIBM, has a chance to become one of the preferred suppliers for the Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs, to produce high-grade face masks for the Dutch healthcare sector in the coming years. The expertise of the Aachen Maastricht Institute for Biobased Materials (AMIBM), which is unique in the Netherlands, ties in perfectly with that of two Limburg entrepreneurs who have recently entered this market. The first samples are currently being inspected to see whether they meet the FFP2 standards that apply for healthcare personnel in pandemic conditions.
