“Mille usi per mille occasioni” (A thousand uses for a thousand occasions). This is the claim you can read on packs of Solvay sodium bicarbonate found in Italian supermarkets.
Existing supercapacitors have a very poor energy-to-weight ratio. Solving this issue was the main objective of the Energy Caps project.
The need for sustainable mobility is rising rapidly as the world’s population grows and urban living becomes more common. At Solvay we are focusing our research to demonstrate the potential of chemistry for eco-mobility.
We are very conscious of our environmental footprint. It’s one of the reasons why we launched the Solwatt® energy efficiency program!
