Published on

AMI is pleased to announce the new international conference on Commercialising Nanotubes 2011. The conference will take place from 8-10 March 2011 at the Maritim Hotel in Düsseldorf, Germany.

We are in the middle of a major expansion in carbon nanotube production with global capacity more than quadrupling over a two-year period. As a result, prices are falling and exciting new markets are opening up.

The first commercial products are already being used in the automotive, electrical and electronic, sporting goods, mass transport and marine industries with many more under development in areas such as the renewable energy, medical and wire and cable markets.

This conference will examine the latest CNT technologies and applications, as well as addressing processing issues and health and safety concerns. The event’s focus is on growing volume markets for nanotubes and on adding value to polymer compounds and composites.
