Roy studied Bio-Inspired Innovation in the Netherlands. He joined Greenpop for five months for a Research Internship. Therefore, he researched ways to filter greywater for the purpose of fynbos irrigation. He came up with a filtration system that mimics a wetland ecosystem. And the coolest thing is that the system is still in use with Greenpop today!
