Aerospace and Automotive Industries
The Microproducts Breakthrough Institute is a unique collaboration between Oregon State University and the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory focused on the development and commercialization of microchannel-based technologies for energy, medical, environmental and national security applications. Formed in 2003, the MBI model is to include academic, federal laboratory and industrial researchers in the same facility and to support the researchers with unique fabrication, modeling and testing capabilities tailored to the development of microchannel devices.
Envia Systems was founded in July 2007, and its headquarters are located in Newark, CA, which houses its materials innovation lab and a pilot production facility for fabrication of battery materials. Its cell prototyping and manufacturing plant is located in Jiaxing, China. The company’s management team has decades of experience in lithium battery development and manufacturing, which it has leveraged to develop its patented nanocomposite technology that enables its batteries to deliver previously unattainable levels of energy capacity, safety and life.
Next generation “High-Quality-Roll2Roll-Beam-Curing-Nanoreplication-Systems”
Nanoptics is an innovative specialist optical technologies equipment and process company, founded in 2008. We developed new technology to bring our partners to the desired capability position - to replicate optical, functional micro and nano structures on Roll2Roll equipment at the ultimate levels of quality and speed.
Nanocomp Technologies Inc (NCTI), based in Concord, NH, was formed in 2004 as a spin-out of Synergy Innovations, Inc., a technology development company. NCTI’s vision is to leverage its proprietary and fundamental advancements in the production of long carbon nanotubes together with a unique ability to fabricate them into physically strong, lightweight, electrically and thermally conductive spun yarns and sheets.
CHASM Advanced Materials Inc. (CHASM) produces Signis few-wall and single-wall and carbon nanotubes using the patented CoMoCAT® catalytic method in fluidized bed reactors. The CoMoCAT method is proven for the scalable selective synthesis of carbon nanotubes with remarkable control of diameter, chirality and purity. These CNT products are ideally suited for commercial application in battery materials, thin-film transistors, transparent conductive films, NRAM and more.
The Nanotechnology Industries Association, NIA, is the sector-independent, responsible voice for the industrial nanotechnologies supply chains.
The NIA supports the ongoing innovation and commercialisation of the next generation of technologies and promotes their safe and reliable advancement.
The nanotechnology industries are made up of many varied companies all at different stages of their life cycle and with a variety of interests in the huge range of technologies that derive their benefit from the nanoscale.
