Serving the semiconductor and hydrogen industries with advanced materials engineering solutions

We research and devel­op pio­neer­ing tech­nol­o­gy appli­ca­tions based on car­bon nanofibers (CNFs) and oth­er dis­rup­tive nanostructures.

We push the limits of nanotechnology

Smoltek is devel­op­ing process tech­nol­o­gy and con­cepts for appli­ca­tions based on car­bon nan­otech­nol­o­gy 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 main focus is based on car­bon nanofibers (CNFs), which have very excit­ing prop­er­ties and we have devel­oped a tech­nol­o­gy plat­form 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 in the midst of devel­op­ing a new cell-mate­r­i­al with the ambi­tion to dou­ble (or even triple) the area-effi­cien­cy of PEM water-electrolyzers.

Why we do what we do

We are sci­en­tists and engi­neers with a pas­sion for nan­otech­nol­o­gy. We are in the nev­er-end­ing search of how to enhance and fab­ri­cate car­bon nanos­truc­tures with unique prop­er­ties in pre-defined pat­terns to enable bet­ter solu­tions with­in sev­er­al industries.

Smoltek has been granted two new patents

Smoltek’s 75th patent has been grant­ed in Tai­wan and is cov­er­ing the con­cept and man­u­fac­tur­ing of extreme­ly thin ener­gy stor­age devices embed­ded in an inter­pos­er. The ener­gy stor­age device con­cepts can take a large num­ber of forms e.g. dis­crete, inte­grat­ed – or it may take the form where the end result is an inter­pos­er with CNF-MIM…

Smoltek patent No. 74 now granted

Smoltek has yet anoth­er patent grant­ed. The new US-patent is relat­ed to the Assem­bly plat­form patent fam­i­ly in the direc­tion of inter­con­nects. This also makes our patent port­fo­lio to now com­prise 74 grant­ed patents.
Ellinor Ehrnberg, President of Smoltek Innovation

Collaboration agreement signed for Smoltek’s green hydrogen solutions

The group com­pa­ny Smoltek Inno­va­tion has signed a col­lab­o­ra­tion agree­ment with a large inter­na­tion­al man­u­fac­tur­er of mate­r­i­al for elec­trolyz­ers. The col­lab­o­ra­tion agree­ment includes the devel­op­ment of demon­stra­tors based on Smoltek’s high­ly effi­cient nanofiber-based cell mate­r­i­al for PEM electrolyzers.

Smoltek initiates MoU-negotiations for joint development of ultra-thin capacitors

Smoltek and the sub­sidiary Smoltek Semi has extend­ed its eval­u­a­tion license agree­ment with a glob­al man­u­fac­tur­er of pas­sive com­po­nents. The par­ties will also define and agree upon the terms of a Mem­o­ran­dum of Under­stand­ing for the joint devel­op­ment of an indus­tri­al mass-pro­duc­tion process for Smoltek’s ultra-thin car­bon nanofiber capacitors.

Smoltek patent No. 73 now granted

Smoltek is award­ed yet anoth­er approved patent, the third this year. The patent, grant­ed in Japan is part of our patent fam­i­ly pro­tect­ing solu­tions for inter­posers based on the CNF-MIM capac­i­tor con­cept. This also means that our patent port­fo­lio now com­pris­es 73 grant­ed patents.

Operational update for Smoltek’s electrolyzer technology

Smoltek has devel­oped a high-per­form­ing nanofiber-based cell mate­r­i­al for PEM-elec­trolyz­ers, with poten­tial to enable a more effi­cient pro­duc­tion of fos­sil-free hydro­gen. In the autumn of 2021, a devel­op­ment col­lab­o­ra­tion was ini­ti­at­ed in col­lab­o­ra­tion with an indus­tri­al man­u­fac­tur­er of mate­ri­als for elec­trolyz­ers, and the aim is to be able to start man­u­fac­tur­ing small-scale pro­to­types in 2023.

CNF-MIM technology license agreement extended – again

Smoltek con­ducts oper­a­tions in the devel­op­ment, indus­tri­al­iza­tion and licens­ing of tech­nol­o­gy solu­tions, based on the com­pa­ny’s patent-pro­tect­ed car­bon nanofiber tech­nol­o­gy, for the semi­con­duc­tor indus­try with­in the Group com­pa­ny Smoltek Semi. Its main focus is the indus­tri­al­iza­tion and com­mer­cial­iza­tion of the company’s ultra-thin CNF-MIM capacitors. 

CEO buys shares for SEK 1.35 million

Smoltek’s CEO Håkan Pers­son has bought 50,000 shares in Smoltek for just over SEK 1.35 mil­lion. The shares were pur­chased from the com­pa­ny’s two largest own­ers, Finn Gram­naes (Gramtec Busi­ness Part­ner) and cur­rent CTO, Peter Enoksson.
