BASF New Business acquires Deutsche Nanoschicht    

By Gerald Ondrey |

BASF New Business GmbH (Ludwigshafen, Germany; www.basf-new-business.com) has acquired all shares of the technology company Deutsche Nanoschicht GmbH (www.d-nano.com). The BASF subsidiary and the founder and sole owner of Deutsche Nanoschicht, Michael Bäcker, have agreed on the acquisition. The parties have signed the relevant agreement. Deutsche Nanoschicht has developed an innovative process for producing thin films by means of chemical solution deposition. This process allows high-temperature superconductors to be manufactured much more efficiently and resource-conserving. Superconductors carry current virtually without loss, so they allow potentially huge savings in generating and transporting electricity. Michael Bäcker, managing director of Deutsche Nanoschicht, says: “Wherever large volumes of electricity are generated, transported or used, the technologies we have developed facilitate innovative power engineering systems that operate efficiently with little impact on resources.” Superconductor technology is of interest particularly in the fields of generators and motors as well as power grids in urban areas. As their current carrying capacity is high com- pared to copper, extremely compact and lightweight…
