FLEEP Technologies designs and develops printed electronics solutions for the biomedical and smart packaging sectors. The company, spin-off of Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia, was founded in May 2019.
FLEEPtech developed a proprietary process for the fabrication of polymer-based integrated circuits based on Organic Thin-Film Transistors, creating the intelligent core for electronics systems that are mechanically flexible, printed like magazines and recyclable. FLEEPtech is the missing link in the printed electronics industry between a great number of flexible and printed products (i.e.
sensors, actuators and energy supplies) that find little space in being integrated with standard non-flexible electronics. For such reasons, the company’s mission revolves around the realization of a general purpose platform for the manufacturing of fully-printed integrated systems, composed by printed sensors, printed actuators, printed energy supplies and harvesters and, of course, printed integrated circuits..

We are professionals in obtaining innovative nanomaterials (Nanotubes, Nafibers, Nanoneedles, Nanospheres, MOFs, Graphene). Nanoseen creates unique solutions for the desalination of both sea and brackish water using its next-generation nanomaterials obtained on recycled metal wafers. Water pollutants have huge impacts on the entire living systems including terrestrial, aquatic, and aerial flora and fauna.
In addition to conventional priority, and newly emerging micro/nano-pollutants, increasing global warming and consequent climate changes are posing major threats to the fresh water availability. Global warming and climate change are constantly increasing the salinity level of both land and sea water, dwindling the availability of existing fresh water for household, agriculture and industry.
Nanoseen builds a water treatment technology solutions that not only removes macro-, micro- and nano-pollutants but also desalinates water. #nanomaterials #nanotechnology #nanotubes #nanoforest #graphene #graphite #carbontubes.
