Technology drives the world forward. Smoltek is ready to make space for the next technological leap in the semiconductor and hydrogen industries.
Our patent-protected technology radically increases the available surface for chemical and electrical processes, enabling more compact, energy-efficient, powerful and cost-efficient products.
The number of transistors on microchips is doubled every second year, driven by the quest for more computing power. With our technology for ultra-thin capacitors that make space on microchips, the semiconductor industry can once again meet rising demands for higher performance.
The interest in green hydrogen is taking off, but the current need for iridium drives costs, making upscaling difficult. With our technology for compact electrolyzers using a minimum of precious catalyst particles, the green hydrogen industry can turn prospects into business.
Approximately 1,000 billion semiconductors are produced worldwide annually. To understand the magnitude of the business, that number corresponds to 125 semiconductors per person and year. Modern electric cars usually contain 2,000 semiconductors.
A rapidly evolving market. In 2021, the global PEM (Proton-exchange membrane) electrolyzer market was valued at USD 737 million. This figure is expected to rise to almost USD 4,3 billion in 2027.
Smoltek is developing process technology and concepts for applications in order to solve advanced materials engineering problems. By pioneering carbon nanotechnology we are literally pushing the limits of what is possible in the semiconductor and hydrogen industries.
Our patent protected technology platform is based on carbon nanofibers (CNFs), which have very exciting properties, that may disrupt technical solutions where today’s materials have reached their limit of performance.
As an example, we have developed a prototype of the world’s smallest capacitor and we are developing a new cell-material with the ambition to double (or even triple) the area-efficiency of PEM water-electrolyzers.
We are scientists and engineers with a passion for nanotechnology. We are in the never-ending search of how to enhance and fabricate carbon nanostruc-tures, with unique properties, in pre-defined patterns to enable better solutions within several industries.Read about Smoltek
The Smoltek share is listed on Spotlight Stock Market. We are now in an industrialisation phase where we focus on two sectors with enormous potential: Semiconductors and hydrogen. We plan to begin volume production in 2024–2026. Join our journey!Discover our share
Today we have inaugurated the new in-house hydrogen laboratory. In these facilities equipped with advanced instruments and tools the R&D team can carry out performance measurement and long-term tests of electrolyzer cells, and will also be able to manufacture test cells.
Smoltek Hydrogen is attending the 244th ECS Meeting in Gothenburg, Sweden. The event brings together the most active researchers in academia, government, and industry—professionals and students—to engage, discuss, and innovate in the areas of electrochemistry and solid state science and related technologies.
Philip Lessner, EVP & CTO at YAGEO Group explains why he and Yageo sees a lot of potential in Smotek’s disruptive carbon nanofiber technology for capacitors and how the CNF-MIM-technology can roll out a wide range of ultra-thin capacitors that fit very well with the new semiconductor segments Yageo is targeting.
Louise Duker, Chief Product Officer at Smoltek, talks about how Smoltek will take the company’s technology concept from manufacturing in a laboratory environment to industrial production in a factory – and how the company’s product range of ultra-thin capacitors will be developed.
Smoltek Hydrogen has appointed Shafiq Kabir as Head of Volume Processes. Shafiq is the founder of Smoltek and he methodically created the company’s technology platform and patent portfolio until January 2021, when he took a break from the nanotechnology industry for pursuing an Executive MBA-program.
In order to enable the extensive electrification and to replace fossil raw materials in industry, large investments are being made globally in the production, distribution and use of completely fossil-free hydrogen, so-called green hydrogen. In Sweden, some attention is certainly directed towards the steel industry’s investments, but the huge interest in hydrogen that we see in many other countries has not yet reached this point.
