Polish researcher currently working on the integration of nanotubes in carpets. Experiments that could soon allow the production of carpets heating powered by a single 12 volt battery.
Researcher January Dlugosz University of Czestochowa, center-edge research in nanotechnology, Jerzy Peszke working on the integration of carbon nanotubes to polymers used in the manufacture of carpets. Nanotubes are very good conductors of heat, all would require only low power to be used as a heating system. This research thus possible to imagine in the near future the production of coatings heated and highly energy efficient floor.
Note also that Jerzy Peszke is not his first attempt. Indeed, thanks to one of his previous research, the industrial production of linoleum made highly bactericidal through the integration of nano-silver should begin shortly.
