Promethean Particles delivers full scale manufacturing capabilities and is the world’s largest continuous multi-material nanoparticle manufacturing plant.  It has developed continuous hydrothermal synthesis, where nanoparticulate materials are produced by mixing superheated/supercritical water with a solution of a metal salt (rather than slowly heating the entire contents of a batch vessel) with two fluids continuously mixed together.

Promethean Particles was established in 2007 following a spin out from The University of Nottingham. The company was originally based at Biocity Nottingham then, as the company expanded, relocated in 2016 to its current premises at Genesis Park, Nottingham.
