Croatian company “Crystal Idea” from Split has been awarded the Gold Medal among 202 competitors from 35 countries in the “Inventions VS Corona” competition for its device to filter the air in iTherapy rooms.
“Notably, alongside the well being of the individual, we have to be aware of climate products and increasing air pollution which impacts our daily physical and mental state,” Kovacic Sindik said.
The idea emerged by researching the market for available filters given that products until then could not meet two important functions simultaneously: purifying internal air from the greatest pollutants while at the same time being adapted for use in residential or commercial premises, hotels, hospitals and the like.
Director of HGK’s industrial sector, Tajana Kesic Sapic pointed out that even before the crisis it had been clear that Croatia’s economy should be based on volume but on innovation, particularly in such uncertain times.
“This sort of achievement helps strengthen Croatia’s image as a country of innovators,” believes Kesic Sapic.
