Demand for a greener alternative to fossil fuels has never been higher. This has sparked massive development in how to harness the power, efficiency and flexibility of carbon – the strongest, environmentally safe and most abundant element on earth.
By partnering with Merck and other industry leaders, Nano-C has developed the most efficient and cost-effective carbon-based fullerenic materials to power a wide range of applications. These materials are enabling companies to deliver breakthrough technology that can generate green energy and power our world into the next century. Featuring patented technology, Nano-C’s carbon-based fullerenic materials are inexpensive, printable, flexible, and tough enough to withstand extreme environmental conditions.
Below are the two critical renewable energy applications they are addressing today:
Organic Photovoltaic Applications
Organic PV offers exceptional advantages in form factor and cost while generating the highest energy harvested per day leading to the greatest energy payback.
|Energy Harvesting||Enables small and lightweight Indoor sensors, chargers, and applications that are wireless, portable, and highly efficient at producing energy from low-light output.|
|Building integrated Photovoltaic (BIPV)||Easily integrated into conventional building materials such as roofs, skylights or facades. Lightweight, flexible, durable and efficient enough to be easily placed anywhere, even in vertical curtain-wall type installations.|
|Automotive||Car roof windows|
|Portable Power||Light-weight, flexible, low-cost, powerful source of green portable power.|
PEM Fuel Cell Applications
Nano-C’s unique innovations enable automotive OEMs to reduce the size and weight of a fuel cell by providing a 20% to 50% increase in energy density.
|Automotive||Hydrogen-oxygen fuel cells eliminate harmful gases and are smaller and more productive in generating power than today’s fuel cells.|
|Portable Power||Can turn traditional fuel cells into a powerful source of green portable power.|
