BUONAPART-E - Better Upscaling and Optimization of Nanoparticle and Nanostructure Production by Means of Electrical Discharges


Collaborative project:

THEME NMP.2011.1.4-1 Large-scale green and economical synthesis of nanoparticles and nanostructures

Project Coordinator: Prof. Einar Kruis

University of Duisburg-Essen (Faculty of Engineering / Institute for Technology of Nanostructures)

BUONAPART-E aims at developing industry relevant quantities of high quality nano-particles in an environmentally friendly and energy efficiently way. The consortium develops a flexible platform enabling to deliver a step change in the availability of high quality nano-particles and nanostructures with customer demand process throughput and competitive product costs.
