Nanotechnology in Fire Protection can save Life and secure Health

17.05.2004


The Markets for Fire Protection Worldwide increase up to more than 30 Billion Euro 2004 and will grow to 54 Billion Euro in 2015. Beijing Olympics 2008 set new standards

Fire Protection have gained importance the last years because of increasing fire problems, damage and death. The loss of assets is about 70 billion Euro in 2004 with increasing tendency. Since many years there is a strong controvercy among passive and active fire protection and the building design and construction. Now the trend goes to more passive fire protection that means to more prevention of fire, damage and death. Nanotechnology today is playing a importend role. Many applications to secure life and health would not be possible without nanotechnology and molecular science. New sensors, glass, electronics, optics, absorbents, concrete additives, coatings, fire retardancy materials, smart fire resistant clothes and new building materials are only some of todays applications. In total there are 48 applications today in fire protection . For the olympics 2008 in beijing the state of science in fire protection technologies was defined. Nanochina is a market development that leads several segments in nanotechnology materials and electronics from chinese companies and technologies.

This small market segment, fire protection, is typical for nanotechnology and the potentials. Nanotechnology is a cross over technology converging with other technologies and sciences.



According to a new study of hkc22.com the Fire Protection market encompasses a broad spectrum of technologies and routes to market, with products ranging from fire detection, alarm systems and building materials to prevent fire and smoke problems. The market is 30 billion euro worldwide in 2004 and expected to grow to 54 billion euro in 2015 . There are 120 companies holding more than 50 percent of the market worldwide and several thousend for the rest. But through new technologies and sciences like molecular technologies the markets could be new defined and the players too. Molecular technologies will shape molecules and atoms and design new products and applications. Nanotechnology in Fire Protection 2004 is less than ten percent but the growth is more than 25 percent per year and the chinese will set new standards with the olympics 2008. It is environmentally friendly and prevent death and damage.

The markets for fire protection worldwide 2010 and 2015 is a new study of hkc22.com in may 2004 and free to purchase. The nanochina and the beijing olympics 2008 is a nanochina study and alliance in china 2004.

Im Focus: Dresdner scientists print tomorrow’s world

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.

The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...

Im Focus: Three Magnetic States for Each Hole

Nanometer-scale magnetic perforated grids could create new possibilities for computing. Together with international colleagues, scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have shown how a cobalt grid can be reliably programmed at room temperature. In addition they discovered that for every hole ("antidot") three magnetic states can be configured. The results have been published in the journal "Scientific Reports".

Physicist Dr. Rantej Bali from the HZDR, together with scientists from Singapore and Australia, designed a special grid structure in a thin layer of cobalt in...
