X-nano develops nanotechnology based solutions for the successful deployment of the energy transition. Our solutions enable the critical steps in the battery, hydrogen and future nuclear energy sectors.
OUR VISION: We are tech-crafters powered by curiosity, feeling the urge and responsibility to take action.
OUR MISSION: We want a future where energy is the solution, not a problem. We play with atoms, creating nanomaterials to enable unexplored solutions.
Using invisible building blocks, we materialize energy transition.
WHO WE ARE
X-nano is a spin-off of the Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia, IIT. We leverage on the solid know-how in nanomaterials and nanocoatings preparation by plasma, laser and thermally assisted reactions in supersonic and subsonic flow jets.
We are capable of creating nanomaterials with unprecedented properties such as ceramics with «ductile» behaviour or super-active nano-catalysts.
We are a group of highly skilled researchers with a broad knowledge spectrum from materials science to energy applications.
On November 2022, Pietro Fiorentini joined our company as equity and industrial partner. Read more
