Research Collaboration to Further Develop Use of Micro-Nano Silicon
(Nanowerk News) American Nano Silicon Technologies, Inc., a leading manufacturer and distributor of Micro-Nano Silicon, announced today that the Company has entered into a cooperative research and development agreement with Southwest University of Science and Technology, School of Materials Science and Engineering, to improve and further develop the potential usage of Micro-Nano Silicon in various industrial fields.
The 10-year cooperative agreement will seek to further research development and industrial applications of Micro-Nano Silicon. All research will be conducted on site at the Company's facilities. The Company's 300 square meter laboratories will be dedicated to embedded system design and fully equipped with hardware, software, and state-of-the-art tools provided by Southwest University of Science and Technology.
The cooperation between the Company and the University will accelerate technological innovation by attracting outstanding scientific talents and enabling wider cooperation with other national research communities. According to the cooperative agreement, the collaboration will focus on areas of
Development of ultra fine crystal structured chemicals in various
Development of nano filtering technology
Production process and industrial application of Nano-Fumed Silica
Innovative production process and industrial application of ultra fine
crystal structured chemicals
Method of purifying titanium white at nano-level, and further research
of its wide range industrial applications
"Close cooperation among and between the Company and researching institutions will definitely improve the speed of the company's future development. Micro-Nano Silicon as an effective non-phosphorus auxiliary cleaning agent is a critical element that differentiates our company from other competitors using 4A-Zeolite in the same market," Mr. Pu Fachun, the Company's CEO, commented. "We are excited about the collaboration because it brings together the unique researching skills of the Southwest University of Science and Technology and the innovative spirit of the Company's R&D team to explore the Micro-Nano Silicon industrial applications."
