Arkema and INES create photovoltaic research lab

Arkema and CEA teams from Institut National de l’Energie Solaire (INES) have joined forces to create in France the first private/public mixed research laboratory dedicated to the development of polymer materials for the various photovoltaic module technologies.

This joint laboratory will pool Arkema’s knowledge of polymers, polymer films and nanomaterials, with the experience of the INES CEA teams in design and development processes for photovoltaic modules, silicon and thin layers.

This cooperation venture will be in place for an initial 4-year period.
