Summary from NAUM 2019 - Nanomaterials in energy storage
NAUM (from Nano Augmented) is a conference on nanomaterials organised and run by OCSiAl. IDTechEx attended a session on the use of nanomaterials in energy storage applications, and visited the exhibition.
Graphene Offers a Large Potential for the Energy Storage Market
This article will highlight some of the key topics addressed for graphene in LiB electrode advancement, post-LiB chemistry changes, supercapacitors, and thermal dissipation.
Graphene Market Research Tipping Point: Part 2
A Discussion With The IDTechEx Research Director. This is the final part of a two-part article written by Dr Khasha Ghaffarzadeh, a leading industry expert and Research Director at IDTechEx, discussing the global graphene market, more information on the topic can be found in his report "Graphene, 2D Materials and Carbon Nanotubes: Markets, Technologies and Opportunities 2019-2029".
Lead-acid Batteries: The Beginning of the End
In May 2016, China's largest lead acid battery maker Chaowei admitted the domestic lead-acid E bike battery market has stopped growing and will only remain stable for the next five years.
Lead acid batteries: delaying the inevitable
IDTechEx finds that C category cars and above will have to be mild hybrids with 48V lithium-ion batteries if they are to meet the tough new carbon dioxide emissions.
Plasma process for SWCNTs. Multi Kg scale
OCSiAl was formed three years ago but only came out of stealth more in Q1 2014. OCSiAl has raised substantial funds and has also recently acquired Zyvex Nanotechnologies, a USA company that specialized in producing CNT composites and launched many high-profile technology demonstrators. OCSiAl is bringing to the market a carbon nanotube (CNT) offering that contains >75% SWCNT (single-walled carbon nanotubes) and is competitively priced.
Raymor Industries, Inc.
Raymor Nanotech is a division of the Raymor Industries, a Canadian private company located near the Montreal area. It initially started supplying spherical titanium powdres synthesized using a plasma atomisaiton method. In 2010 it started work on single walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) and the titanium activity has since been acquired (dec 2013) by Arcam for a reported fee of $35 million. Raymor has also acquired NanoIntegris (operating as a subsidiary) which brings value in the post processing steps of CNT production, i.e., purifying and separating metallic and semiconducting ones.
Unlimited, low-cost production of single wall carbon nanotubes
OCSiAl has unveiled a breakthrough technology for the production of single wall carbon nanotubes ('SWCNTs'), which enables large scale, commercial productionof SWCNT for the first time.
