Enable IPC Corporation
(PINKSHEETS: EIPC) today announced its subsidiary, SolRayo, LLC, has accepted
an invitation to join the Advanced Materials Industrial Consortium at the University
of Wisconsin. The Consortium gives commercial partners the opportunity to collaborate
with students and faculty in advanced materials research across the UW-Madison
campus. Information on the consortium can be found at: http://www.uwamic.wisc.edu/.
By joining the consortium, SolRayo gains access to talented students and faculty
at the university, as well as instrumentation at university laboratories. SolRayo
is particularly interested in being able to access the Materials Research Science
and Engineering Center on Nanostructured Interfaces (MRSEC), which was established
at the university by the National Science Foundation. More information on the
MRSEC is available at: http://www.mrsec.wisc.edu/.
"This opportunity provides us with a valuable resource," said SolRayo
Chief Technology Officer Kevin Leonard. "As part of this consortium we
will have access to equipment and expertise that is otherwise very difficult
to come by."
Previously, SolRayo was featured in an article published by the American Ceramics
Society Bulletin, titled "A Heroic Capacity," which discussed how
ultracapacitors complement batteries, and how several of the leading ultracapacitor
companies, including SolRayo, are working to integrate their use in various
applications. The article can be found at: http://www.americanceramicsociety.org/bulletin/apr_09/.
Separately, Enable IPC recently announced the shipment of its nanoparticle-based
ultracapacitor electrodes to IMDEA in Madrid. This contract is in connection
with a high profile renewable energy demonstration project in Spain.
