Funditec Participates in NEMMO: Optimizing the Design and Performance of Tidal Turbine Blades

NEMMO (Next Evolution in Materials and Models for Ocean Energy) is a European project financed by the Horizon 2020 framework programme. The main objective is to improve the efficiency of floating tidal turbines that generate energy from tidal forces. To this end, the objective is to reduce costs by designing larger, lighter and more durable turbine blades to reach capacities of more than 2 MW. Funditec is one of the partners of the project consortium […]

Funditec Becomes Member of the Iberian Association of Photocatalysis (AIF)

Funditec is a new member of the Iberian Association of Photocatalysis (AIF). This association aims to pool and put in contact companies and research centers that provide photocatalytic construction materials, with the aim of implementing the concept of The Photocatalytics Island within the large polluted cities. The main objectives are to enumerate the different trades linked to photocatalysis and list the existing or potential applications of photocatalysis, prepare a professional manual, determinate recommendations and control […]
