Nigel is passionate about removing toxins from our food and our environment.  He is CEO of Ligar, a NZ company that develops materials to extract specific molecules from fluids.  Over the past 6 years he has been working with Ligar’s Hamilton-based team to scale up the molecular imprinting technology, which is typically used in analytical chemistry, so that it can be used to filter at industrial scale.  The company will be launching its first systems in 2017.  Nigel’s background is in the development and international marketing of new technologies and he has a BSc and a MBA.
