EIC Pathfinder funds a new project titled

EIC Pathfinder funds a new project titled

Multi-property Compositionally Complex Magnets for Advanced Energy Applications Project 101099736 — CoCoMag The European Innovation Council funds a research project led by Technical University Darmstadt and partners from University of Seville (Spain), Max-Planck-Institut für Eisenforschung (Germany), Danube University Krems (Austria), Chalmers University of Technologies (Sweden) and companies Magnotherm (Germany), New Ideas 4.0 SRL (Italy) and AMEN New Technologies (Greece) with 3 million euros. “ The aim of the project is to synthesize, produce and test new alloys suitable for permanent magnets and magneto-caloric applications without using rare-earth elements and cobalt ”. This step is crucial to accelerate the electrification of our infrastructures, explains Oliver Gutfleisch , professor for Functional Materials at the Technical University Darmstadt and coordinator of the new project. The researcher team consisting of eight partners from six European countries, proposes a novel concept for magnetic materials, by applying compositionally complex alloys (CCAs). This concept is derived from the high-entropy alloys (HEAs) design strategy, which is a new alloying strategy that combines multiple principal elements in relatively high (often equiatomic) concentrations says partner Dr. D. Niarchos  (AMEN and INN) who holds a worldwide patent on this idea. “The CCA concept does not have a strict limitation on the near equal ratio of the different elements, but provides a higher design freedom and enables developing sustainable magnets with excellent mechanical properties, corrosion resistance and shapeability”, says Dr. Liuliu Han , project leader at the Max- Planck-Institut für Eisenforschung, which is project partner, too. The CoCoMag (Multi-property Compositionally Complex Magnets for Advanced Energy Applications) project is supported by the EIC “Pathfinder Open” funding line, which aims to identify radically new technologies that have the potential to create entirely new markets. To this end, visionary and high-risk projects are funded at an early stage of development. The newly granted project paves the way for a disruptive change in the e-mobility and cooling sectors, which currently rely on rare-earth elements and cobalt – highly limited elements. New innovative magnets derived from compositionally complex alloys will be less costly, lower the negative ecological footprint and maximize targeted properties.

Committed to innovation and excellence, AMEN strives to advance the frontiers of permanent magnet materials, fostering transformative developments across various industries and has strong collaboration with INN, NCSR Demokritos.

AMEN New Technologies part of 20 CEE Startups and SMEs Speeding Up the Clean Energy Transition

AMEN New Technologies part of 20 CEE Startups and SMEs Speeding Up the Clean Energy Transition

An article from The Recursive : The Balkans’ potential for renewable and clean energy production has attracted more and more foreign investors looking to develop or support bigger and more efficient projects, from solar plants, to wind parks, and, more recently, small nuclear reactors. Individual countries in the region have also been advancing financing schemes for clean energy startups and companies. In Bulgaria, for instance, firms in the tourism sector can apply by the end of the year for financing of energy efficiency and clean energy projects. And Romanian companies can tap into a 30M euro allocation for green energy projects through the National Recovery and Resilience Plan. Meanwhile, Greece is getting closer to building a green energy corridor to export its renewable electricity to Central Europe , as part of its plan to sell excess power abroad to countries that do not benefit from similar conditions for the production of renewables such as solar and wind power. And demand for clean, secure, and affordable energy is higher than ever. This year, investments in renewables may be beating the oil and gas sector for the first time, as electricity prices across Europe surge to all time highs. Even nuclear energy, which is opposed by certain global green and humanitarian groups and several governments, got the “sustainable” tick on the European Commission’s green taxonomy, as a bridging technology. Given such tailwinds, there’s no doubt that renewable energy will continue to rise in the region. With that in mind, The Recursive took a look at the clean energy startups and young companies innovating in the space, whether by creating new marketplaces, increasing the efficiency of renewable energy technologies, working on alternative fuels, or creating new business models in the space. Our company is also included in these 20 startups. Name: AMEN New Technologies Headquarters: Greece Founders : Dr. Dimitrios Niarchos, Filotas Niarchos , Antonios Bogdanos Type of solution: Nanotechnology research Description : The company focuses on R&D using nanomaterials for energy, environment, health and space applications, filling the gap between research teams in academic institutions and the business world.

Συμμετοχή και επίσκεψη στα Ποσειδώνια 2022

Η AMEN New Technologies συνεχίζει την επιστροφή της στην κανονικότητα με τη συμμετοχή και επίσκεψη στα Ποσειδώνια 2022. Τέσσερα χρόνια μετά την τελευταία διοργάνωση του συνεδρίου λόγω της πανδημίας, συμμετείχαμε σε συναντήσεις με δυνητικούς συνεργάτες και φίλους, κάνοντας ένα ακόμη βήμα παραπέρα σε σχέση με το άνοιγμα της εταιρείας στην αγορά και την παραγωγή. Αυτή τη φορά, ως αντιπρόσωποι της Harsonic στην Ελλάδα, προωθούμε τη συσκευή anti-fouling για σκάφη και πλοία. Η συσκευή αυτή σας διατηρεί το στόλο σας καθαρό, χωρίς να δημιουργείται πρόβλημα στην κίνηση των πλοίων, ταυτοχρόνως όμως σας γλιτώνει από επιπλέον έξοδα σε χημικούς καθαρισμούς, σε κόστη κινήσεως καθώς και αποτελεί μια «πράσινη επιλογή», βοηθώντας ταυτοχρόνως το περιβάλλον.
