NAFEN™ enhanced materials have strong potential in several segments of the energy sector. In some cases, traditional materials could be replaced by novel NAFEN™ enhanced materials. In others, the use of NAFEN™ solutions will make the finished goods more durable, thus saving material and cost over the product’s lifetime. Promising trends in the Sustainable Energy sector where Nafen could be successfully applied include:
  • Light-weighted strengthened parts in marine vessels and vehicles for greater fuel efficiencies;
  • Abrasion-resistant Coatings for wind turbines to reduce field maintenance and down-time;
  • Stronger composite resins for extending wind turbine blades to increase energy yield;
  • Optimized lithium-ion batteries with improved storage capacity and increased lifespan;
  • Fuel cells with reinforced materials for energy production, which require less energy and resources during manufacturing and increase output;
  • Highly-efficient nano-sized catalytically active components in catalytic converters ;
  • Enhanced adhesives and plastics used as substrates for solar energy panels ;
  • Reinforced tires with reduced rolling resistance for greater fuel efficiency;

All of these can provide significant economic and environmental benefits (less waste, smaller carbon footprint, greater energy yield, etc.) and assist in bringing about sustainable energy solutions.
