Private, Independent and Tenacious
WE SPECIALIZE IN FIRST OF KIND ELECTROCHEMISTRY
Advanced batteries, fuel cells and clean hydrogen
Water re-use, purification and sterilization
Clean and sustainable electro-synthesis of materials
Novel nano-scale and micron scale coating technologies
We started our journey over 30 years ago providing non-obvious, deep tech solutions to large scale, high impact challenges. Clients included DOD, DOE, aerospace, energy and utility companies, City, State and government agencies and often included close consultation with regulatory authorities and certifying agencies.
This led to a growing portfolio of IP and start-up technology businesses, which continued us on our journey to explore the edges (Verge) of the unknowable and uncertain (Quantum) in technology and applied science.
With multiple successful technology spinouts, licenses and IPOs completed, and many lessons learned along the way, we have the independence and maturity to take the long view, sort signal from noise, and drive from concept to commercial scale.
Our portfolio of Ebonex® materials, IP and know-how, helps us deliver exceptional value and performance, to our clients, strategic partners and licensees. Our founders are the pioneers in Magneli Phase materials. These becoming the "go to" materials for advanced electrodes, catalyst supports and sensors. With 3 decades' experience developing optimal deployments of these uniquely capable materials in water treatment, advanced batteries and other applications, we have expanded our Ebonex branded portfolio far beyond the original Ti4O7 based materials.
