Title TU Delft: Delft Researchers Unmask Millions Of Unsafe Face Masks Degree of recognition International Media name/outlet India Education Diary Media type Web Country India Date 17/09/21 Description n March 2020, Delft researchers Tim Horeman, John van den Dobbelsteen and Bart van Straten, in collaboration with Greencycl, developed a method to sterilise face masks for reuse. Their method also proved to be a good way to check imported masks. It wasn’t long before the PFE test became the unintended standard for Dutch hospitals, which required providers to have this test performed.
As a result of our research results, fears of false safety grew among medical professionals. Because the certification did not match the quality, doctors said they would rather reuse used face masks than the new batch of imported masks.
