Axion is developing advanced energy storage devices that it refers to as e3 Supercells. Axion's e3 Supercells replace the lead-based negative electrodes found in conventional lead-acid batteries with nanoporous carbon electrodes.
Bing Energy, Inc. has an exclusive commercialization agreement to use Florida State University professor Dr. Jim P. Zheng's patented breakthrough nanotechnology to create a more commercially viable fuel cell. Building on the groundbreaking of Dr. Ben Wang, inventor of buckypaper, Zheng has pioneered a fuel cell that incorporates a thin membrane composed of carbon nanotubes, reducing the need for expensive platinum that, until now, have made fuel cells too expensive to be widely marketed.
BioSolar, Inc. has developed a breakthrough technology to produce bio-based materials from renewable plant sources. Through the advanced manipulation of bio-based polymers, BioSolar intends to produce robust bio-based components that meet the stringent thermal and durability requirements of current solar cell manufacturing processes.
California Lithium Battery applies a new Argonne patented process to embed nano-silicon into graphene that Argonne tests show help to stabilize the silicon to create a superior lithium battery anode material.
Centrosolar Glas is the first glass finisher in the world with fully integrated, automatic batch production of solar glass. It incorporates the processes of trimming, edge processing, coating, tempering and packing to customer-specific requirements. The anti-reflective coating (CENTROSOL HiT) is applied in clean-room conditions using coating facilities developed by Centrosolar Glas itself. Both the reflection colour and the maximum transmission wavelength of the nanocoating can be adjusted on request.
