Functional Foams and Coatings

Work Package 13

We design, research and develop new technologies for next generation foams and coatings, based on graphene and layered materials, for environmental applications such as water and air purification, anti-corrosion coatings, and humidity and pressure sensors for environmental remediation.

The ultimate goal of the Functional Foams and Coatings Work Package is to develop new technology to help EU countries mitigate climate change in line with the Paris agreement, and to enable these countries to adhere to policies set by the European Commission defining acceptable standards for water and air quality.

Our graphene foams and coatings for water desalination, and air and water purification, can address the demand for clean water in developing countries and help to reduce the effects of pollution.”
