Lab articles left behind by the Plant Sciences Group get a new lease of life in Ghana.
Wageningen alumnus Peter Twumasi picked out the best of the used materials for a biosciences and agriculture institute in Ghana. Last week, he loaded this – mainly written-off lab equipment – into a 35 cubic metre sea container headed for Ghana. ‘All this equipment is in good working condition’, Henkens says. Plant Sciences has put aside a selection for own use. There are still materials for other development aid organizations, for the taking.
