Kuwait Times :Kuwaiti inventor Adel Jumaa Abdine was yesterday declared winner of the silver medal at the prestigious International Exhibition of Inventions of Geneva, the most important inventions-related event in the world. Abdine won the silver medal for his invention of a unique system for emergency runway for civil and military aircraft which will help solve many problems which face air planes while landing. “I dedicate this winning to His Highness the Amir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah and His Highness the Prime Minister Sheikh Jaber Mubarak Al-Hamad Al-Sabah for their support to me,” Abdine said.

The invention also includes a system for heating the pavements during cool times. “This award encourages me to do all in power to help Kuwait become the first country in the world to use this system,” he said.
Abdine revealed that he has received two invitations to participate in Geneva civilian aircraft exhibition to be held next month and the military aircraft exhibition to be held here next year. “I hope HH the Amir would sponsor my participation in the two exhibitions,” he said.
