𝗖𝗮𝗿𝘃𝗲𝘆 𝗘𝗵𝗿𝗲𝗻 𝗠𝗮𝗶𝗴𝘂𝗲 is a student from Mapua University, invented the Aureus, a technology that utilizes crop wastes to create solar biopolymer materials that can harvest UV light. Its ability to capture UV light allows Aureus materials to function even during cloudy or lowlight conditions or even on areas facing away from the sun, making it applicable to windows, facades, or claddings in vertical developments such as buildings. The solar material can also be formed in various shapes allowing it to be integrated to textiles or vehicles in the future. The Aureus won the James Dyson Sustainability Award in 2020.
