Process Line Implementation for Applied Surface Nanotechnologies (PLIANT)

The EU-funded project PLIANT (Process Line Implementation for Applied Surface Nanotechnologies) focuses on the fabrication of nanostructured surfaces through atmospheric pressure processes. Pilot lines will be established to target substantial potential applications in three strategically significant industrial areas:

  • energy storage by high capacity batteries and hybrid capacitors with enhanced energy density,
  • solar power generation and
  • energy efficient (lightweight) airplanes.

Research funding

The PLIANT project has received funding from the European Union`s Seventh Programme for research, technological development and demonstration under grant agreement number 309530. Project duration: 01.02.2013 – 31.01.2017
