A direct result of the feasibility study CNF Arena, funded by Nordland County
MAIN GOALS OF CNF ARENA
- Developing the CO2 value chain.
- Establish collaboration with key partners.
- Identify potential and market opportunity.
- Identify disruptive R&D projects.
- Develop concept for carbon lab.
CNF Arena is a collaboration between MON KF and BCS
REALISING THE POTENTIAL NEEDS SIGNIFICANT R&D EFFORTS
CNF has unique properties through being stronger than steel, lighter than plastics and more conductive than copper. A study performed by NORCE confirms a huge market potential for CNF due to a growing need within technology development and material improvement. By introducing CNF into various materials it is possible to transfer CNF properties to the material, obtaining unique improvements for example within composite materials or concrete. Significant R&D efforts are needed to accelerate upscaling of new technology and industrial solutions
MAIN FOCUS AREAS
CNF IN ALUMINIUM
We are currently initiating projects investigating how to improve aluminium traits using CNF. Among the traits we are aiming for is making aluminium more conductive than copper. Our collaborating partners have leading industrial competence in the field of aluminium.
CNF IN CONCRETE
CNF can provide some exciting properties to concrete such as increased compressive strength and self-sensing (smart concrete). We are looking for innovative partners to develop the concrete of the future with lower CO2 footprint compared to today’s standards.
