Green Energy with Tantalum and Niobium Powders
At TANIOBIS we always strive to use our innovative power to develop products that support the trend towards a greener future as we see both technical progress and sustainability as our responsibility. For that reason, we develop tantalum and niobium powders that contribute to the functionality and efficiency of renewable energy sources.
Superalloys that contain niobium enable improved machine performance and fuel combustion, lower machine maintenance costs and greater safety. Niobium slows material aging processes and prevents crack formation under thermal stress, which makes it very well suited for application in gas turbine components. Also, wind energy towers and turbines make use of our niobium powders as alloys additives in advanced steels to increase their strength and resistance to corrosion and wear.
Battery technology uses niobium compounds to make safer, cost-effective, more powerful cells that charge faster and convert stored chemical energy into electricity. Niobium is increasingly being applied in doping or coating for materials for Lithium-ion Batteries (LIB) to meet the increasing demand for higher performance, longer-life, and safety.
