8-10 March 2011, Maritim Hotel, 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 examines 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
Commercialising nanotubes 2011 offers a meeting point for the
industry to debate business trends and improvements in materials
and properties. It provides a unique opportunity to network with the
wide range of professionals who work with and produce nanotubes
