For industry applications of nano-catalysts, the main bottlenecks are the low loading per unit support area and the slow flow rate through the support particles. By growing a dense Au nanowire forest on a loose network of glass fibers, continuous-flow catalysis can be achieved with a processing rate about 100 times that of the best literature rate.
