Nanotek Instruments Receives $1 Million from Ohio Third Frontier for Energy Development Project

The Ohio Third Frontier Commission awarded Nanotek Instruments $1 million to accelerate commercialisation of its nano-graphene platelets-based (NGP) electrode materials for next generation supercapacitors.

Nanotek’s say that their NGP electrode technology offers the energy density of a modern battery yet can be recharged in less than two minutes. Nanotek will team with its manufacturing arm Angstron Materials on the project which promises to provide a breakthrough step in energy storage.

“The commercialisation of supercapacitor technology is crucial not only to advancing the transition from gasoline-powered to electric vehicles, but to providing effective energy storage solutions for wind power, solar energy and modern grid systems,” says Bor Jang, co-Founder of Nanotek and Angstron. “The challenge has been the inability of conventional carbon nano materials to store a sufficient amount of energy per unit mass. Our NGP material has solved this low energy density problem by demonstrating an energy density that exceeds that of commercially available supercapacitors and is comparable with nickel metal hydride batteries.”

Nanotek want to use funds to purchase equipment for small-scale production and fabrication of electrodes material.
