Project goal

The main objective of the SuNaMa project is to develop innovative, high-performance, highly conductive, electrocatalytically active, durable, cost-effective, and high surface area nanocarbon materials. These materials are potential candidates to be employed in low-carbon energy technologies such as ultracapacitors, metal-air batteries, and fuel cells. This would represent a significant breakthrough in the renewable and low-carbon energy technology sector and exponentially widen the market with an environmentally friendly, low-cost technology with a substantial impact on reducing carbon dioxide (CO2) emission as well the environmental hazard produced by various industries. The focus of the SuNaMa project is to improve the performance of the state-of-the-art ultracapacitors, metal-air batteries, and fuel cells as well significantly reduce the price of these technologies.
