Sony's new material Triporous

Technology Inceptions

Sony has created a new product named Triporous FIBER for the textile and apparel industry. It is a natural material made from rice husk. The product was exhibited for the first time at ISPO Munich 2020, the world's largest sporting and outdoor equipment exhibition. Triporous is a porous carbon material with a unique microstructure made from rice husk, which is surplus biomass. In addition to micropores (2 nm or less) found in conventional activated carbon, many mesopores (2 to 50 nm) and macropores (50 nm or more) that are larger than the micropores are present in a complex form. This allows the material to deliver the property of easily adsorbing large molecular weight substances, which was difficult with conventional materials. Moreover, this structure also enables high-speed adsorption of low molecular compounds, making Triporous a versatile material for use in various applications such as water and air purification.
