Recent breakthroughs in nanotechnology have renewed the excitement and pragmatism of bringing new and more efficient energy applications to life (e.g. fuel cells, batteries, photovoltaics, biodiesel). Microfluidics is proud to power several leading researchers and manufacturers as they develop innovative energy products to help change the world.
Used primarily in automotive, stationary power and mobile consumer products, fuel cells improve performance, reduce reliance on fossil fuels, never degrade, and emit minimal greenhouse gases. Because they require an input of fuel, circuits must be highly efficient and materials cost-effective.
Over the past 20 years, Microfluidics has consistently demonstrated the ability to process fuel cell and similar materials (e.g. inkjet inks) with a highly uniform average particle size less than 200 nm. Few technologies can compare with the results achieved by Microfluidics - and the ones that do can't scale. If you manufacture catalyst or electrode materials, Mircofluidizer processors will help you...
Photovoltaic – or solar – cells use light as their energy source and do not have a catalyst. Instead, they are composed of multiple layers of materials which work together to generate electricity. Microfluidizer processors add efficiency throughout the photovoltaic energy production chain, from capturing light to converting and conducting it.
