Flexible solar cells for textiles

ID: F1512-06

Presently, there is a strong competition to European manufacturers from China's solar panel industry that exports panels at really low prices. To fend down competition, there features been a change to non-silicon-based and thin-film PV technologies. Nevertheless, these technologies have only marginal benefits and set up requirements are similar to traditional solar panels. In addition, modules are mostly rigid panels and cannot be integrated into big structures without modifying the architecture design. The task decreased module and installation expenses by combining versatile OPV materials with tensile materials utilizing roll-to-roll manufacturing techniques. The ability to create the panels on fabric surfaces means that complex shapes can be created to increase solar collection. Addressing big areas with versatile polymer structures costs less than glass, with programs spanning from walkway shades, coach stops and carport covers to arcades and stadiums. The organic solar cells also do maybe not include the customary indium-tin-oxide that's scarce, expensive and brittle. Rather, project partners used aluminium that is cheaper and can be scaled up to create aluminium foils. The modules comply with European and intercontinental criteria and laws for implementation in off-grid since well as grid-connected or feed-in-tariff (FIT) power schemes. In the short term, FIT plans provide operators with motivation for investment by having to pay them for power created in their installed systems such as tones. In the long term, researchers envision a final system in which FIT schemes will be unnecessary given the low price of the PV technology contrasted to grid prices. Taken together, the materials and technology promise to bring the expense of solar energy on par with that of traditional power. Reduced production, transport and operating expenses should encourage investment in PV solar power. The technology is truly pioneering as there's nothing comparable available on the market these days.

    Fewer infections in hospitalshttp://tech-no-log-ic.de/index.php/get-in-contact/item/1516-fewer-infections-in-hospitalshttp://tech-no-log-ic.de/index.php/get-in-contact/item/1516-fewer-infections-in-hospitalsFewer infections in hospitals

    Fewer infections in hospitals

    One in 10 hospital customers are impacted by nosocomial infections. The outcome is an expansion of hospital stays by more than 10 million patient days per year in European countries alone. Impregnating hospital textiles, such as bedding and bandages, with antibacterial nanoparticles, would considerably decrease hospital-acquired infections, enhance client outcomes and save millions of euros. To attain this, a project expanded on a recently proven and patented single-step laboratory procedure.  This involved impregnating the textiles with copper oxide and zinc oxide nanoparticles. Nanoparticle-coated materials had been tested and displayed effective anti-bacterial properties and great longevity. The pilot plants showed that this might be an effective method of creating textiles with strong anti-bacterial attributes. Scientists found that steel oxide nanoparticles can destroy both sensitive bacteria and germs that are resistant to antibiotics. To demonstrate the safety and effectiveness of antibacterial nanoparticles in a medical center environment. Earlier to this research, no chemical treatment for producing and impregnating textiles with antibacterial nanoparticles existed on an industrial scale. Many thanks to this task, antibacterial textiles will be manufactured by a one-step process that makes use of nanoparticles. This decreases production time and fibre damage, lowers production costs and utilizes an environmentally friendly water solution. Textile manufacturers today have all they require to move up commercialisation efforts.
