    Critical elements

    Raw materials are fundamental to economic development. But almost all of them have a problem: they are finite substances, and using them indiscriminately can lead to an unsustainable future. It is therefore important to develop new recycling and utilisation technologies, as well as to research substitutes based on more abundant materials that allow the same level of energy efficiency and...

    Advanced photoactive materials

    Significant improvements in the use of solar energy will in any case require new photoactive materials, which react to light and trigger energy-generating processes capable of overcoming the limitations of silicon and multiplying the performance of the panels.
