CarboInk

The development goal of the CarboInk project consists of electrically conductive, printable inks. The photovoltaics industry is particularly interested in the production of easily printable, thin and costeffective conductors that guarantee the conduction of electrons. Due to rising resource costs and expense manufacturing processes, photovoltaic systems continue to be very cost-intensive. The reduction or replacement of silver as the main component of printing inks and pastes alone has the potential to generate enormous cost savings and would make environmentally friendly solar energy substantially more competitive. Moreover, CNT-based inks open up additional practical applications with vast marketing potential. Such innovative inks can be used, for instance, as printable heating systems on automotive windows, which are not discernible to the naked eye.
