Romania wins 24 gold medals at Geneva

This Is Romania





The Romanian delegation won 24 gold, 18 silver and 7 bronze me­dals,
plus 20 special awards at the 39th edition of the Interna­tional
Exhi­bition of Inventions of Geneva, the National Authority for
Scientific Research (ANCS) an­nounces, quoted by HotNews. Ro­mania
attended the Geneva exhibition on April 6-10, with 49 inventions, of
which 40 were financed and displayed under the aegis of ANCS, while the
other 9 were financed by inventors themsel­ves, or by various R&D
units. One of the special awards, with applicability in medicine, was
granted to Teodora Tihan, Ingrid Ionescu, Aurelia Meghea and Ioana
Deme­trescu for their “Method of obtaining polymeric films for
medicine.”
Medal for engine which saves fuel in heat
The car engineer Corneliu Birtok-Baneasa won the bronze medal in the
2011 Geneva International Exhibition of Inventions, for inventing a
device which boosts the power of a car engine, while reducing fuel
consumption, on hot days, Realitatea.net reports. The Romanian’s
invention is called “integrated deflector for thermal radiation issued
by internal combustion engines”. The device forces the air current which
goes through a car radiator to adopt a descending trajectory, thus
preventing its access to the engine compartment. Thus, the car’s intake
manifold and air filter are protected from overheating, particularly on
hot summer days. “The de­flector comes in handy in summer, as it
maintains a high air density, preventing overheating and power losses.
The use of the deflector boosts the engine’s power and reduces fuel
consumption,” Birtok-Baneasa stated.
