CMET Thrissur has established facility for the production of aerogel at pilot plant level through supercritical drying method with financial support of DST Govt. of India. This unique facility has capability to produce 5 kg carbon aerogel material in single batch required for production of ~10000 numbers of 1 F aerogel supercapacitor. One of the main attractions of this facility is the recycling of the supercritical fluid medium during the aerogel production and thereby making the process energy efficient and more environmentally friendly.
