Production lines

As the company further points out, the nanotube synthesis facility will be accompanied by the production lines of more than 40 nanotube-based concentrates and dispersions designed to simplify industrial handling of nanotubes and will be launched in sequence in 2022-2023. These products are used in aerospace, automotive, construction, electronics, packaging and consumer goods.

The Serbian facility will be complemented by a larger nanotube manufacturing facility in Differdange, Luxembourg, in 2025.
