WHERE THE NANOFIBERS CAN BE USED (to name only some):
Increasing the available power from a battery and decreasing the time required to recharge a battery.
Increasing the shelf life of a battery
Reducing the possibility of batteries catching fire
increase the capabilities of electronics devices while we reduce their weight and power consumption.
to reduce the cost of catalysts used in fuel cells to produce hydrogen ions from fuel such as methanol
to improve the efficiency of membranes used in fuel cells to separate hydrogen ions from other gases such as oxygen
Better Air Quality
improve the performance of catalysts used to transform vapors escaping from cars or industrial plants into harmless gasses
Better air quality inside the cars
Nanotechnology can enable sensors to detect very small amounts of chemical vapors.
Because of the small size of nanotubes, nanowires, or nanoparticles, a few gas molecules are sufficient to change the electrical properties of the sensing elements.
Making composite fabric with nano-sized particles or fibers allows improvement of fabric properties without a significant increase in weight, thickness, or stiffness
Nanoparticles (embedded to nanofiber carrier) can be used to convert the contaminating chemical through a chemical reaction to make it harmless
Very efficient filtration thanks to Nanofiber based membranes
Can be manufactured at significantly lower cost than conventional solar cells
