Engineering materials for a greener future
NMAM group undertakes research devoted to searching for novel and cost-effective approaches to improve the efficiency of materials for Energy-related areas helping to effectively develop a "greener future". Our approaches can be considered general and hence we expect to apply them to several other tecnological areas.

Nuclear, Solar, Biofuels, wind and other renewables, etc.
This collection of feature articles from Nature looks at the technologies and science base needed to meet the challenge of clean energy on a global scale, taking in everything from artificial photosynthesis to hybrid cars, and from nuclear power to biofuel shrubs.
The aim of this collection of articles is therefore to focus on what materials-based solutions can offer and show how the rational design and improvement of their physical and chemical properties can lead to energy-production alternatives that have the potential to compete with existing technologies.
