Greener manufacture of metal-organic frameworks

Greener manufacture of metal-organic frameworks

Metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) are a class of highly porous adsorbent materials that have promising applications in catalysis, gas storage, and gas separation. However, their manufacture often generates large volumes of toxic waste and uses large amounts of energy. Acsynam’s innovative supercritical CO2 technology not only enables the rapid, cost-effective synthesis of high-quality, high-porosity MOFs, but also does so in a clean, sustainable and environmentally- friendly manner. This is achieved by virtually eliminating the high volumes of solvents and corrosive reagents usually necessary for the manufacture of MOFs.

Effective Protection against Wear & Corrosion with the “EHLA Process”

Effective Protection against Wear & Corrosion with the “EHLA Process”

Hard chrome plating, thermal spraying and laser material deposition are ways of protecting components against corrosion and wear. However, all these processes have significant drawbacks. For example, as of September 2017, hard chrome plating using chromium(VI) will require special authorization. The new extreme high-speed Laser Material Deposition process, developed by the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT and RWTH Aachen University and known by its German acronym EHLA, eliminates these drawbacks in an effective and economical way.

SOL FR® - flame retardants made from natural cellulose

SOL FR® - flame retardants made from natural cellulose

The new generation of environmentally friendly silicone-nitrogen FR cellulose fiber SOL FR® is made from raw materials including natural cellulose and flame retardants. SOL FR® is produced through spinning and solidifying after a grafting reaction between cellulose solution and new silicon-nitrogen flame retardants, which can remain its original frameshape after burning without releasing toxic smoke and exerting bad effect on natural environment after its waste degradation, overcoming the current problems of poisonous gas released by burning phosphorus-containing flame-resistant fabric and water eutrophication in the process of waste degradation.

The filament and stable fiber produced by this technique can be used to make into military protective clothing, firefighter uniform, knitting and weaving textile products for household and public interior furnishings.
