Nanoxer s.r.l. is a University of Trieste spin-off research
company founded in 2008. The
original scope was to produce innovative and highly performing
aerogel-containing insulation materials, based on the know-how
developped at the Department of Chemistry. Despite hard work and
succesful industrialisation on a pilot scale of the aerogel
synthesis process, durable and cost-effective commercial products
could not be attained; consequently this project has been abandoned.
Nevertheless, some positive results have been obtained in the
development of advanced naval fire-doors in a joint project with
Fincantieri S.p.A. (project:
Since 2011, jointly with the Department and industrial partners, we have carried out research in the fields of marine engine pollution abatement and steel-making processes. This latter research, carried out in co-operation, led to development of effective instrumentation capable to perform full composition/real-time off-gas analysis. The instrumentation is now being industrialized. Responsible of the product is dr. Ilan Boscarato.
