The Fifth International Seminar on Aerogels has been postponed until September 2021 due to the global COVID-19 crisis. But, as they say in Hollywood: the show must go on! In its place we will organize an “Online Aerogel Seminar 2020″ on the original seminar dates (16-18 September, 2020) with selected oral presentations by video conference, […]
This fantastic video by Bompas & Parr tells you the story about aerogels and the Institute of Thermal Separation Processes: Video: Taste the Sky: The World’s Lightest Dessert Enjoy!
Aerogels have now captured the interest of German’s weekly VDI-Nachrichten. VDI-Nachrichten ar well-renowned for their insights into current trends of engineering, technological trends, research and development.Read More
NanoHybrids started on 1st November 2015 to develop a new generation of nanoporous organic and hybrid aerogels for industrial applications. Main objective has been the upscaling from laboratory to pilot scale production. After 42 months NanoHybrids reached its main goals: a number of novel bioabased, organic and hybrid aerogel particles can now be produced in […]
Jet Cutter Technology as new production method for large amounts of aerogel beads identified by NanoHybrids
NanoHybrids achieved the production of bio-based aerogel beads in industrial scale for the first time. Two main methods have been developed, tested and employed. On one hand, well-known emulsion-gelation has been transferred into a continuous process especially suitable for small aerogel beads; on the other hand, the jetcutting method has been identified as a potential […]
