New method for the technological use of 2D nanomaterials

02-Jun-2022

Nanosheets are finely structured two-dimensional materials and have great potential for innovation. They are fixed on top of each other in layered crystals, and must first be separated from each other so that they can be used, for example, to filter gas mixtures or for efficient gas barriers. A ...

Thermal storage for the energy transition

The energy is not stored in the form of increased heat but in the form of a chemical state

05-Oct-2021

In Germany, 55 percent of final energy consumption goes towards heating and cooling. However, a lot of heat dissipates unused because it is not generated as and when required. Thermal storage using zeolite material allows heat to be stored for long periods of time without losing any. Fraunhofer ...
