Project nameProject leaderProject participantsDescription Research towards Nordic industrialization of The-Salt-and-Paper Battery Uppsala University Holding VTT, FMC Biopolymer, ETC Batteries and Fuel cells AB, FOV Favrics AB, Will carry out the research and development necessary for forming the foundation for future commercialisation of a new type of paper-based, environmentally friendly supercapacitors and batteries. Nano Coatings for Solid Oxide Fuels Cells Chalmers UniversityUniv. of Oslo, Topsoe Fuel Cells, Sandvik Materials Technology AB Will investigate the use of nano- coatings to prevent these degradation mechanisms. E.g. by the application of thin films of cerium the corrosion rates of the material can be reduced substantially. TOPNANOYKISaab Aerosystems, KTH, AkzoNobel, MW Innovation, Nibe, Re- Turn AS, Sapa Heat Transfer AB, Vattenfall, Vestas, VTT, Aarhus Univ. Will develop sustainable and efficient methods based on nanotechnology to reduce problems and costs with ice build-up. Three projects The fourth project is in the evaluation process.
