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 […]
