Specialty Industry – New Production Line for Silicon Carbide Nanoparticles

Location: Rambouillet (78)
Project phase: Engineering studies
Project duration: 18 months

Project background: the start-up NANOMAKERS called on EMDELEN to strengthen its capacity to produce nanoparticles, which are generated from a laser pyrolysis process. Main applications: reinforcement of polymer or composite materials, lithium-ion batteries.

  • Review of the production rate to increase the plant’s productivity
  • Assessment, sizing of equipment and drafting of technical specifications
  • Implementation of the new production line in the existing workshop
  • Work specification (piping, EIA)
  • Writing of the functional analysis and HAZOP
  • Writing a process book

Total amount for the project:

Range A: < €10 million
Range B: between €10 and €20 million
Range C: between €20 and €50 million
Range D > €50 million

Special point: New “zero emission” production line (gas, dust, etc.) with maximum containment and vacuum work.
