Deep down on the bottom of the seas, in near-complete darkness, nature shaped a beautiful light trapping agent unlike anything else.

We’re proud to introduce: the diatom. It has amazing – almost too good to be true – capabilities. Millions of years of development, in the form of evolution, made it possible.

The frustules of the algae have one to three layers of nanopores, which can be used in several industrial applications. This frustle material can be used to increase the efficiency of solar panels due to the structures light trapping property. The structure also blocks block UV light efficiently which can be utilized in e.g. sunscreens and plastics.

Due to the materials nanoporosity it also takes up and releases chemical substances efficiently which can be utilized in a lot of different applications.
