On the sunny side with more efficiency

New energies require new ideas. Schunk Xycarb Technology's technical expertise for SiC-coated graphite and quartz products can contribute to the production of highly efficient multi-junction solar cells. This could make the generation of solar power far more economical in the future.   

Hydrogen? For sure!

Hydrogen is highly combustable and highly explosive. Test facilities for H2 applications must therefore be designed to be particularly safe. As an experienced testing technology specialist, Weiss Technik has developed a unique, multifunctional and modular H2 safety concept together with TÜV-Rheinland Industrieservice GmbH.
