Controlled production of high tech multifunctional products and their recycling

Controlled production of high tech multifunctional products and their recycling

Objective

Industrial needs in terms of multifunctionnal components are increasing. Several sectors are concerned, ranging from mature high volume markets like automotive applications, high added value parts like space & aeronautic components or even emerging activities like new technologies for energy.

Also are concerned domains with a planetary impact like environment and new products and functions for health and safety of people. Nanotechnologies could play a key role in promoting innovation in design and realisation of multifunctional products for the future, either by improving usual products or creating new functions and new products.

Nevertheless, this huge evolution of the industry of materials could only happen if the main technological and economic challenges are solved with reference to the societal acceptance. Those concern the mastering, over the whole life cycle of the products, of the potential risks, by an integration of the elaboration channels, while taking into account recycling.

The general objective of the project is the safe, integrated and controlled production of high-tech multifunctional nano-structured products including their recycling, and ensuring competitiveness.

It means that
- all along the production sequence, no nanoparticle release will be encountered. This includes synthesis, recovery (direct liquid recovery), conditioning (advanced granulation), processing and handling;
- the whole production sequence will consist in linking in a safe way existing or emerging elementary processes (direct plasma spraying, laser 3D direct manufacturing, and powder consolidation techniques);
- the production sequence will be controlled by innovative systems covering process efficiency, product reliability, global safety production, & traceability;
- recyclability issues will be addressed and v) generic tools will be developed.
