We are pleased to announce that the project submitted by our company entitled “Nanomaterials for the production of self-disinfecting surfaces, disinfectants and sanitary products” was approved by the Ministry of Funds and Regional Policy and was recommended for support. The total value of the project is PLN 1,173,306. The project will be implemented on the basis of the Intelligent Development Operational Program 2014 – 2020, Priority 2: Support for the environment and the potential of enterprises to conduct R & D & I works, Activity 2.1: “Support for investments in R&D infrastructure of enterprises” OP IR “Subsidy for infrastructure to combat COVID-19 ”.

Thanks to the implementation of the project, our company will acquire an advanced scanning electron microscope equipped with a built-in spectrometer (EDS). The device for coating samples with a layer of gold and platinum, included in the kit, allows to achieve unprecedented imaging resolution of all kinds of samples, including biological samples.

In addition, thanks to the support granted, we plan to purchase an advanced device for the analysis of nanomaterials that allows the measurement of particle sizes in the range of 0.3 – 10,000 nm (standard DLS method and MADLS method – multi-angle dynamic light scattering), measurement of Zeta potential and measurement of particle concentration using the MADLS method. It is the most advanced colloid analysis solution available on the market.

The purchased devices will allow for a expanding the production volume of nanomaterials used in combating the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. We are glad that our efforts in ensuring sanitary safety have been appreciated at the ministerial level.
