Carbon Potential

A vision made reality

NAWA is a pioneer: we have created a revolutionary 3D carbon-based nano-material which enables breakthrough performance improvements across multiple application domains from energy storage to advanced composites.
Made with abundant carbon, NAWA’s Vertically Aligned Carbon Nanotubes (VACNT) are the ultimate interface material. It can be used for reinforced composites, next-generation hydrogen fuel cell catalysts and ultra-fast battery electrodes.
NAWA’s VACNT technology boosts performance, safety and reduces weight, while also consuming less raw materials.
Day after day, NAWA focuses on solving the weak points in some of the most challenging fields to secure the energy transition. For over a decade of research and development, our 75 employees based in Aix-en-Provence have been building game-changing solutions for a more sustainable world.

Unlocking three application domains



After a decade of research and development, NAWA is reaching
its industrialisation stage:
Our VACNT technology is now made available to multiple global industries.
Our talented team, composed of 11 PhD, international engineers and advanced hardware experts, has secured 26 patents and the final design of the material to be implemented in key applications.

Advanced Composites

NAWAStitch makes carbon fiber composites ultra-strong. The thin film contains trillions of VACNT and acts as ‘nano-velcro’, reinforcing the weakest parts of the composite.
Shear strength increased by a factor of 100 and shock resistance increased by a factor of 10, NAWAStitch boosts carbon fiber composite properties across a variety of products ranging from sporting products, H2 tanks and aerospace components.

Hydrogen Fuel Cells

NAWA is developing a disruptive fuel cell supporting catalyst featuring embedded VACNT. This cutting-edge 3D nanoscale solution, based on high permeability channels, results in improved lifetime, less use of platinum or enhanced power at
constant M².
As the world transitions to a zero-emission future, this technology has applications across multiple
e-mobility sectors.

Energy Storage

Applying VACNT’s game-changing properties to battery systems, NAWA is at the advanced stages of demonstrating that its ultra-fast electrode technology can solve many of the challenges of solid state batteries while boosting performance.
Combining mechanical robustness, high conductivity and high permeability channels, VACNT are an ideal host for different battery chemistries, such as lithium, to achieve faster charging speed together with thinner, safer and more sustainable electrodes.

I am delighted to be joining NAWA at this exciting time. The company is a pioneer in the development of Vertically Aligned Carbon Nano Tubes (VACNT), a revolutionary technology that has a rich variety of applications, from energy storage to advanced composites, across many fast-growing global sectors, including the automotive industry. As NAWA enters its next fundraising round, I will draw upon my expertise to focus on bringing these products to market quickly, delivering on the enormous global potential of the business.
