IYC Video Competition WinnerFirst place, and a FlipCamera, goes to Veronique de Halleux, Université Libre De Bruxelles, Belgium, for her video Organic Materials Could Save Your Life! in which some of the many uses of organic materials are described.

IYC Video Competition WinnerSecond place
goes to Vilas Pol, Argonne National Laboratory, Illinois, USA, for his video Upcycling Of Plastic Bags. Here, he describes recent research that is finding ways to convert plastic bags into highly valuable dry products such as carbon nanotubes and carbon spheres.

goes to Werner Nowaczyk, Germany, for his entry on the Fermentation Process in Wine Making. In this video, he enlists the help of Dr. Ethan Nol to explain the breakdown of glucose by yeast into ethanol and carbon dioxide.

The second and third place winners will both receive book vouchers.

Our congratulations go to all three winners!
