The research and development of Organic Photovoltaics technology begins, counting on specialists in the field and 18 nationalities.
Roll-to-roll printing equipment developed by the CSEM Brazil team, manufactured in Germany, is brought to Belo Horizonte for installation and initial testing.
Sunew, the spin-off responsible for the large-scale manufacture and commercialization of Organic Photovoltaic Films (OPV), is established with the largest and most modern production structure in the world.
SUNEW produces and delivers the largest OPV installation in the world at Totvs headquarters in the city of São Paulo, Brazil.
Sustainability from conception:
Sunew is the world leader in the manufacture of Organic Photovoltaic (OPV), with an installed production capacity of 600,000 m² per year.
The developed production method is continuous and highly scalable. The materials used are organic, abundant in nature and non-toxic in a roll-to-roll printing process similar to the textile or graphic industry. Also, it requires low temperatures and therefore low energy demand. OPV is the greenest energy available and Sunew is at the forefront of technology for its manufacture and delivery to the market.
