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.

More and more automobile companies are focusing on body parts made of carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP). However, manufacturing and repair costs must be further reduced in order to make CFRP more economical in use. Together with the Volkswagen AG and five other partners in the project HolQueSt 3D, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) has developed laser processes for the automatic trimming, drilling and repair of three-dimensional components.
Automated manufacturing processes are the basis for ultimately establishing the series production of CFRP components. In the project HolQueSt 3D, the LZH has...
Reflecting the structure of composites found in nature and the ancient world, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have synthesized thin carbon nanotube (CNT) textiles that exhibit both high electrical conductivity and a level of toughness that is about fifty times higher than copper films, currently used in electronics.
"The structural robustness of thin metal films has significant importance for the reliable operation of smart skin and flexible electronics including...
The nearby, giant radio galaxy M87 hosts a supermassive black hole (BH) and is well-known for its bright jet dominating the spectrum over ten orders of magnitude in frequency. Due to its proximity, jet prominence, and the large black hole mass, M87 is the best laboratory for investigating the formation, acceleration, and collimation of relativistic jets. A research team led by Silke Britzen from the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy in Bonn, Germany, has found strong indication for turbulent processes connecting the accretion disk and the jet of that galaxy providing insights into the longstanding problem of the origin of astrophysical jets.
Supermassive black holes form some of the most enigmatic phenomena in astrophysics. Their enormous energy output is supposed to be generated by the...
The probability to find a certain number of photons inside a laser pulse usually corresponds to a classical distribution of independent events, the so-called...
Microprocessors based on atomically thin materials hold the promise of the evolution of traditional processors as well as new applications in the field of flexible electronics. Now, a TU Wien research team led by Thomas Müller has made a breakthrough in this field as part of an ongoing research project.
Two-dimensional materials, or 2D materials for short, are extremely versatile, although – or often more precisely because – they are made up of just one or a...
