+ At the Geneva Exhibition of Inventions, the Romanian inventor won the gold medal and a special prize from a Hong Kong-based professional science and technology association
Romanian inventor Corneliu Birtok Baneasa won the gold medal and a special prize from a Hong Kong-based professional science and technology association (Science & Technology Parks Corporation) for an invention he presented at the International Exhibition of Inventions in Geneva (April 13-17).
The inventor, who hails from Deva, presented at this year’s edition of the Exhibition a device dubbed “heat deflector,” used in auto vehicles during the summer in order to lower the engine’s power losses caused by high temperatures.
“The jury took into account the fact that the invention lowers fuel consumption and pollution emissions, the fact that it is a patented invention and, last but not least, that it is part of a Ph.D. thesis,” Corneliu Birtok Baneasa stated on Monday for Agerpres.
He explained that the heat deflector lowers the air’s temperature within the engine’s air admission shaft, leading to the engine’s optimal performance during days with high temperatures. The fuel consumption is thus cut by 7 percent, and pollution emissions are also lowered.
Apart from the awards he won, inventor Corneliu Bitok Baneasa noted that Romania’s team is well received at all exhibitions of inventions all over the world. In his opinion, it would be useful for the inventors who win various prizes to be subsequently supported by authorities in order to put their ideas into practice.
In fact, he plans to support, in the future, the youngsters with technical skills and ideas in presenting innovations and inventions at various exhibitions, in order for them to be able to put their creative spirit into practice.
Engineer Corneliu Birtok Baneasa is a Ph.D. candidate at the Polytechnic University of Timisoara, specialising in the engineering of materials. He has so far won 28 gold medals at various international exhibitions of inventions in the country and abroad.
