ATTONUCLEI: Opening New Frontiers of Innovation in Nanotechnology

Top 10 Advanced Materials Solution Companies in Europe - 2020

The exponential pace of innovation in science and technology has pushed the limits of advanced materials. The developments in advanced materials and its evolution have paved the way for a transformational paradigm shift in technologies, societies, and the quality of products. While the advanced materials landscape is becoming increasingly sophisticated with the creation of complex, small, and precise parts, engineers and designers are researching to further understand the properties of materials.

Technological advancements like AR and VR are being utilized in the virtual designing of materials, making it easier to develop materials and structures that are customized according to a particular environment or need to be constructed at a site as per requirements. With new structural materials like metals, polymers, nanomaterials, and smart materials entering the marketplace, new and promising avenues are opening up in the manufacturing arena.

Organizations are leveraging a combination of materials and technologies from industry inventories and rethinking their conventional strategies and approaches to fuel their performance and drive growth.

In the wake of such technology transformations, this edition features some of the best names in the advanced materials solutions industry that are continually proving their worth with technological capabilities and success stories. This edition of Manufacturing Technology Insights will showcase those advanced materials solution providers who are at the forefront of innovation in the industry.

We present to you Manufacturing Technology Insights’, “Top 10 Advanced Materials Solution Providers in Europe - 2020.”

Top Advanced Materials Solution Companies in Europe

Attonuclei, an R&D centre with a decade of experience in QDs and engineered nanomaterials produces functionalising non-heavy metals-based QDs to ensure that they are “biocompatible” with human tissues and non-toxic for human health, chemically stable over time and that they are not released in the external environment. And advanced materials company in the Europe, Attonuclei uses a unique ‘bottom-up’ approach to produce functionalised custom QDs at industrial scale, to serve different industries. QDs produced by the Attonuclei help the clients to ‘upgrade’ their existing products into new high-end innovative products, with added innovative properties and new features (i.e. adding new physical, chemical, biological and mechanical properties) without altering their structure or main characteristics. Attonuclei, amidst the Coronavirus outbreak that has crippled the world, has developed a product for the detection of SARS-Cov-2 by leveraging its QDs. While the currently used reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) testing method does not provide complete reliability and shows false positives, Attonuclei’s product can diagnose the virus with an efficiency close to 100 per cent. It can even detect the virus on asymptomatic patients

CNM Technologies holds a broad IP portfolio (15 families of patents and patent applications) protecting the material, handling and applications of Carbon Nanomembranes. To this extent, CNM Technologies has created a proprietary toolbox that includes different manufacturing steps, suitable for both mass production of large-area separation membranes and free-standing CNMs for complementary metal-oxide semiconductors in sensors or integrated circuits. The European Commission has recently awarded a Future Emerging Technology (FET) Open project for developing water separation with CNMs. The company will be the central piece of a consortium comprising eight institutions that spans the whole “value chain” of water treatment. CNM Technologies is currently using the fund to sponsor a pilot project towards the same, implementing various results from basic research in composite membranes and supplying process developers with CNMs for functional demonstrations
