Green energy and catalysts

Nanoparticles can be used in a large variety of applications within the green/renewable energy and catalysis industries. New applications are constantly developed and being researched.

Applications include:

  • Gas capture and storage
  • Photovoltaics
  • Batteries
  • Catalysts
  • Fuel cells

MOFs (Metal Organic Framework)

Metal Organic Frameworks, mostly commonly called MOFs, are coordination compounds composed of metal ions or clusters linked by rigid organic linker molecules to form a 2D or 3D porous structure. Void space can be used to absorb and store gases such as H2, CO2, SO2, N2 etc. Typically, MOF surface area is over 2,000m2 per gram.

The applications used to be limited by cost due to the lack of large scale continuous production but Promethean Particles is now disrupting the market with the world’s largest continuous multi-material nanoparticle manufacturing plant.
