Solrayo Opens New Manufacturing Facility for its Nanoparticle-Based Ultracapacitors
(Nanowerk News) Enable IPC Corporation's SolRayo subsidiary announced the opening of its new facility in Madison, Wisconsin.
The new facility, part of a larger business park, was built out to SolRayo's specifications and will house specialized equipment for the development and manufacturing of the Company's nanoparticle-based ultracapacitor electrodes. The facility, build out and equipment were funded in part by a grant from the Wisconsin Energy Independence Fund (WEIF) announced earlier.
"This move confirms SolRayo's commitment to advancing inexpensive ultracapacitor electrode manufacturing for renewable energy applications in Wisconsin," said SolRayo president, Dr. Mark Daugherty. "This move reaffirms the partnership between SolRayo, its parent -- Enable IPC Corporation -- and WEIF. All three share the same vision: to ultimately create jobs and expand renewable energy opportunities, particularly in the state of Wisconsin."
Dr. Daugherty remarked that the Company had previously utilized laboratory space at the University of Wisconsin to develop its electrodes. The move allows SolRayo to commence larger scale production of its electrodes, which could not happen at the university.
Enable IPC previously announced a webinar hosted by SolRayo (the presentation is available at http://www.solrayo.com/SolRayo/Renewable_Energy_Slides.html#0) and a status update of each of its technologies, available at http://www.enableipc.com/status
