Inc., a privately-held specialty chemical company that manufactures high
quality single-wall and specialty multiwall carbon nanotubes for a range of
products, announces their CEO Dave Arthur will be speaking at the 2009 NanoBusiness
Conference on Tuesday, September 8 addressing the company's progress in commercialization
of carbon nanotubes, inks and coatings.
The title of his presentation at the Chicago Hyatt Regency McCormick Place
at 10:45 AM is," From Nanotechnology to NanoBusiness: Commercializing Carbon
SWeNT is a leading developer and manufacturer of Single-wall Carbon Nanotubes
(SWCNT) and Specialty Multiwall Nanotubes. Their new manufacturing facility,
opened last year, increased single-wall carbon nanotube production capacity
100-fold and one-tenth the unit cost. Employing the low-cost CoMoCAT® process,
high quality and the ability to tailor product properties is assured.
The company recently secured a $3 million investment from Insight Technology
Capital Partners, LP, (Insight) a Growth Capital Fund based in Troy, Michigan.
Arthur is a leading expert in the field of carbon nanotubes, with 25 of years
experience commercializing products utilizing advanced materials. Arthur is
also president and co-founder of Chasm Technologies in Canton, Massachusetts.
Chasm develops scalable manufacturing processes for coated and printed thin
films and helps its customers commercialize new products using novel nanomaterials.
He holds an MBA from Northeastern University, an MS in chemical engineering
from the University of Connecticut and a BS in chemical engineering from Tufts
Additionally, the company will have a booth in the exhibition space to meet
with customers, partners and investors.
Single and multi-wall carbon nanotubes consist of a hollow cylinder of carbon
with a diameter equal to approximately one nanometer – a billionth of
a meter. Carbon nanotubes possess extraordinary optical and electronic properties,
tremendous strength and flexibility, and high thermal and chemical stability.
Today, carbon nanotubes are used in a wide range of applications in the automotive,
aeronautics, electronics, displays, energy and healthcare markets.
