Dave Arthur, CEO of SouthWest
NanoTechnologies Inc., a leading developer of carbon nanotubes for research
and commercial use, will speak at the fifth annual Livingston Nanotechnology
Conference, on December 7 (3:45 pm - 4:30 pm) at the Lighthouse Theater in New
Arthur will participate on a panel titled "Rebuilding the World with Next
Generation Materials" at the Conference -- New York's largest gathering
for corporations, investors, government and scientific leaders and other stakeholders
who are interested in how the fundamental advances nanoscale innovation will
impact industry, business and society.
"We're at the forefront of developing innovative solutions for commercial
applications using carbon nanotubes," explains SWeNT CEO Dave Arthur. "At
the conference, I'll be focusing on two examples: breakthrough ink technology
that will enable energy efficient lighting, affordable solar devices, improved
energy storage and printed electronics as well as smart fabric reinforcements
to help rebuild and monitor our nation's infrastructure. Our innovations in
these and other emerging applications have us well positioned for significant
growth in 2010."
SouthWest NanoTechnologies Inc. (SWeNT) is a leading developer and manufacturer
of Single-wall Carbon Nanotubes (SWCNT) and Specialty Multi-wall Carbon Nanotubes.
Their new manufacturing facility opened last year, increased SWCNT production
capacity 100-fold at one-tenth the unit cost. With their patented, low-cost
CoMoCAT® process, high quality, customized nanotubes can now available in
Arthur will be speaking on the panel along with John Andresakis of Mitsui International,
Andrew Dreyer (Head of US Business Development for Mitsubishi) and Paul Boulier
(Chief Marketing Officer of A. Schulman & Co.). The panel will be moderated
by Stanley Goos, a Partner at Harris Beach LLC, a top law firm in New York focused
on economic development and advanced technology issues.
Single and Multi-wall Carbon Nanotubes consist of hollow cylinders 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.
