NANOCOMPO is a project aimed at ensuring the vertical integration of carbon nanotubes to boost the development of derivative final products and develop new generations of products that take advantage of all nanoparticles and Wallonia’s nanotechnology expertise.
The project fostered the pooling of Walloon expertise in nanotechnologies as the industry kicked off. The first industrial carbon nanotube synthesis reactor, with a capacity of 40 metric tons per year, began operating
in 2007. Nanocyl SA’s production capacity rose steadily thereafter to hit 400 metric tons/year at the end of 2010.
The result? The creation of a technology platform for the development of nanocomposites in Wallonia.
