Niro AS is playing an important role in what may well prove to be the start of the new industrial revolution: the production of materials and products using nanoparticles.
The 4-year, 15.7 million euro project, is partially funded by the European Commission (8.1million euro) and involves 21 industrial partners including SMEs, universities and research institutions from 11 European countries and Canada.
The project is called SAPHIR and was kicked off at CEA Saclay (French Atomic Commission) in October last year. Its overall objective is the safe, integrated, controlled, economic production and recycling of high-tech, multifunctional, nano-structured products. The aim is to develop an integrated ‘factory for nanos' and to gather all the industrial ‘elementary bricks' to make the bottom up manufacturing approach using nanoparticles a reality.
