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 […]
About the TUHH pilot plant The TUHH pilot plant for aerogel production comprises of two high-pressure units (64 L & 25 L capacity) to perform the supercritical carbon dioxide drying needed for aerogel production. The unit is enclosed in a ventilated cabin satisfying the ATEX norms. Each unit is operated independently in closed loop setting […]Read More
Today, April 11, 2019, the final results of 42 months research and innovation on novel organic and hybrid aerogel particle production will be presented at PARTEC 2019. A whole session “NanoHybrids” is devoted to disseminate the scientific achievements. The session covers relevant aspects related to the realisation of industrial production of a class of novel […]
The ProcessNet groups Adsorption and High Pressure Process Engineering are discussing current trends and developments in these fields at the TU Bergakademie Freiberg, Germany, from 18-20 February 2019.
NanoHybrids at AEROGELS 2018 – Investigation of External Mass Transfer Effects in Supercritical Drying of Alcogel Particles
One of the lectures relating to NanoHybrids results present investigation of external mass transfer effects in supercritical drying of alcogel particles. Organic aerogels in the form of particles are considered as promising materials for a wide variety of applications such as drug delivery, biosensing and food technology due their unique properties and biocompatibility.
