rganic solar cell developer Heliatek, Germany, has signed a joint development agreement
with RECKLI, a world leader in the manufacture of elastic molds for concrete building façades. This will enable vertical concrete walls of buildings to become highly efficient solar energy harvesters by integrating Heliatek’s organic solar panels directly onto concrete façade blocks. This new Building Integrated Photo- voltaic (BIPV) solution will combine energy harves- ting to reduce a building’s carbon footprint with a discrete, aesthetically pleasing, visual appearance.
itachi Chemical Co., Ltd. has recently develo- ped a new large-scale synthesis process for
carbon nanotubes (CNTs). This process is based on a technique to synthesize continuously large-scale, extra-fine, and long CNTs of high purity with three walls on an average, and is expected to enhance the speed for practical use of CNTs in all fields. In additi- on, based on the dispersion technique that is indis- pensable for realizing CNT characteristics, Hitachi Chemical has developed a dispersion liquid, which decreases damage on CNTs and has high stability. Hitachi Chemical will start providing samples of the extra-fine and long CNT, the dispersion liquid, and the related materials synthesized by this process.
