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.

Pushing the limits of nanotechnology

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.

A passion that never fades

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.

Shafiq Kabir appointed head of volume processes within the hydrogen business area

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.

A giant market for new Swedish technology

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.
