TCNT has successfully developed the world’s first Carbon Nanotube based material after a long period of endeavors. TCNT believes that this cutting-edge material will drastically revolute fields like renewable, energy efficiency, green buildings, water resources, and traffics. Among those fields, TCNT has begun technology transfer discussions with companies in the energy industry, indicating the maturity of its nanotechnology. This significant breakthrough not only proves TCNT’s product development capability but also benefits many of its customers.
Carbon nanotubes, owing to their extraordinary mechanical and electrical properties, have widely applied in professional production processes for atoms and molecule fabrication, capacitor materials, power generation, desalination, hydrogen storage materials, and nuclear power generation. Its diverse applications will cause positive impacts on not only the high-tech industry but also lives of all human beings.
Dr. LI, GUANG-JE explains that carbon nanotubes, formed by a series of carbon molecules, featuring extraordinary strength and stiffness, performs exceptionally in electrical conductivity (over 100 S/cm) and reduction-oxidation reaction. The highly stable and anti-corrosive capability of carbon nanotubes makes it extremely suitable for bipolar plates, drastically diminishing overall weights and sizes of fuel cells and increasing energy density simultaneously. It is discovered that carbon nanotube would maximize the capacitance by controlling electrolyte on the surface, allowing the development of lighter and better-performed fuel cell vehicles.
The carbon nanotubes based materials developed by TCNT are efficiency and pollution-free, providing high-speed channels for electric current and great reduction-oxidant reaction. The carbon nanotubes based materials, breaking activity limit of average carbon materials, not only comply with chemical batteries without synergy of the catalyst but also feature low electrical resistance. The R&D Team of TCNT is currently developing a large-scale power generation project and is under technology transfer discussion with some Taiwanese and Japanese companies.
Although there have been many breakthroughs of carbon nanotubes in the laboratory, developing products like carbon nanotube computers and carbon nanotube transistors, it is still challenging for massive adoption due to its low yield stability and unknown applications. Eddy Tsai, the CEO of TCNT states that with the rising yield stability, carbon nanotube based materials will eventually open a new page for patent technologies of material science. In order to realize the nanotechnology industry, besides satisfying development needs of future products, it is also necessary to develop new technologies to connect professionals in the entire manufacturing supply chain, promoting the values of nano products. TCNT has dedicated to reinforcing the values of various products and integrating supply chain to provide complete services and product portfolio.
