At Nano-C's core is an energy and environmentally efficient combustion-based process technology invented at MIT by Nano-C Founder and MIT Professor Emeritus, Jack B. Howard. Nano-C is the exclusive developer and owner of the advanced II-G technology which has enabled Nano-C to be a leader in the efficient production of high-quality fullerenic materials including C60, C70, C84 and fullerene black. Nano-C's II-G technology offers an order-of-magnitude improvement in performance when compared to its 1st-generation technology licensed to a Japanese company in 2001.
