Vuala X1 Trial at The Bradfield Centre

Published on 10 Jul 2023

Abiel Ma, CEO of Vuala, was one of the three winners of the 2022 Trinity Bradfield Prize. His winning idea was the Vuala X1 - an onsite food waste separation system reducing the amount going into landfill, thereby cutting CO2 emissions, whilst saving money and creating raw material for biogas and animal feed.

We are delighted to be able to support their growth by running a pilot of the Vuala X1 at The Bradfield Centre, and the food waste from our cafe is now being separated and converted into slurry.

Abiel is taking the opportunity of the trial at The Bradfield Centre to showcase the technology by arranging a number of demo's for interested parties including Judge Business School, Cambridge Wireless and many more.

As a reminder, applications for the 2023 Trinity Bradfield Prize are now open, so please apply if you have a Tech or Life Sciences at The University of Cambridge.

In Abiel's own words:

"This prestigious award has been a catalyst for advancing the development of our groundbreaking food waste recycling solution, Vuala X1. The recognition and generous financial support provided by the prize have been instrumental in propelling Vuala's innovation forward.

The resources, mentorship, and exposure offered by the Bradfield Centre have been invaluable in our journey towards achieving real-world impact. I would like to express my sincere gratitude to the Trinity Bradfield Prize community for their unwavering belief in Vuala's vision and their invaluable support throughout this transformative experience. I wholeheartedly encourage others to apply for this remarkable opportunity, as it has the potential to unlock doors and propel innovative ideas towards success."
