Kristina Nilsson is the newest member of the Triboron team. She joined the company in the middle of February 2016 as its first Chief Technical Officer (CTO).
Kristina Nilsson has a master of science in chemical engineering from Uppsala University with a focus on material chemistry and participated in research projects within the field of molecular modeling of proteins on diamond surfaces and high temperature solid state synthesis at Ångström laboratory. Her thesis project was done in collaboration with IBM Research Center in San Jose, US, developing a molecular vehicle for drug transport using polymers. She defended her licentiate thesis at KTH in 2014 regarding the dissolution mechanism of nuclear fuel in contact with ground water assessing the safety of a final repository.
When it comes to experience from the industry, Ms. Nilsson has previously done validation testing in the R&D at Becker Industrial AB and documentation handling at Octapharma. Kristina Nilsson looks forward to changing focus from nuclear fuel to biofuels and fossil fuels.”I hope that I can help to increase the momentum in our efforts to implement a technology that has an enormous potential to make an instant difference in the quest for a sustainable society,” she says.
The Swedish innovation Triboron is a patented, unique technology for reducing mechanical friction. Mixed with the fuel in a modern vehicle Triboron creates a sustainable fuel saving of between 3 and 5 percent. Our major scientific breakthrough is the ability to dissolve a low concentration of Boron into a clear, stable liquid. Triboron captures the full effect of Boron’s documented friction- reducing properties while also protecting mechanical parts from wear and tear. Triboron International AB is founded and governed by a group of leading Swedish industrialists and supported by world-class expertise in the fields of chemistry, combustion technology and energy production.
