AutoProNano (Start-Up in planning stage)
AutoProNano aims to make colloidal nanoparticles available quickly, easily and reproducibly at the push of a button. The prototype of their compact benchtop automat will be developed to marketability by the end of 2021 within an EFRE project at the UDE.

airCode UG intends to introduce chipless labels made of nanosilicon to the market: The particles come from the NanoEnergieTechnikZentrum (NETZ) and the Institut für Energie und Umwelttechnik (IUTA). They are embedded in a special ink that can be printed directly onto the package. After being processed by laser it turns into a functioning electronic circuit. Unlike a barcode, the RFID label is reusable, and so is the package. Since it also does not require a chip, its price is around €0.01 – around five times cheaper than its conventional counterpart.
Managing Director: Prof. Dr. Niels Benson
HSW Materials GmbH was spun off from the NanoEnergieTechnikZentrum (NETZ) and is engaged in the development, production and distribution of nanomaterials and products manufactured on the basis of these materials. HSW Materials produces precursors and starting materials for various industrial sectors. Particles and materials are tailor-made according to customer requirements.
