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: Goodbye, silicon? On the way to new electronic materials with metal-organic networks

Scientists at the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research (MPI-P) in Mainz (Germany) together with scientists from Dresden, Leipzig, Sofia (Bulgaria) and Madrid (Spain) have now developed and characterized a novel, metal-organic material which displays electrical properties mimicking those of highly crystalline silicon. The material which can easily be fabricated at room temperature could serve as a replacement for expensive conventional inorganic materials used in optoelectronics.

Silicon, a so called semiconductor, is currently widely employed for the development of components such as solar cells, LEDs or computer chips. High purity...

Im Focus: Storage & Transport of highly volatile Gases made safer & cheaper by the use of “Kinetic Trapping"

Augsburg chemists present a new technology for compressing, storing and transporting highly volatile gases in porous frameworks/New prospects for gas-powered vehicles

Storage of highly volatile gases has always been a major technological challenge, not least for use in the automotive sector, for, for example, methane or...

Im Focus: Disrupting crystalline order to restore superfluidity

When we put water in a freezer, water molecules crystallize and form ice. This change from one phase of matter to another is called a phase transition. While this transition, and countless others that occur in nature, typically takes place at the same fixed conditions, such as the freezing point, one can ask how it can be influenced in a controlled way.

We are all familiar with such control of the freezing transition, as it is an essential ingredient in the art of making a sorbet or a slushy. To make a cold...
