A company based in the South-East of England is offering their expertise in the synthesis, testing, analysis and commercialisation of nanoparticles. The company`s products are currently used mostly in fuel additives, catalysis, polymers and coatings. They are looking for partners that can help to approach new markets, either based on the company`s existing products or on new products, born from the company`s materials expertise and the partners` knowledge of the market.
A company based in the South-East of England is offering their expertise in the synthesis, testing, analysis and commercialisation of nanoparticles. The company's current products are mostly used in the fuel additives, catalytic, polymers and coatings markets, but the company is keen to extend to other applications.
They are looking for partners that can help adapt the company's products for new markets, which the company and the partner will then approach jointly. Alternatively, the company is looking for partners that can benefit from the company's expertise in improving their current products' efficacy or applications.
The company's products include a fuel borne combustion catalyst based on nanotechnology for diesel fuel. This product has been shown to reduce fuel consumption by 4-11%, with a concomitant reduction in CO2 output. Significant reductions in emissions of particulate matter (10-18%) and hydrocarbons (10-15%) have also been observed in controlled tests run in independent laboratories.
The company's offer comprises both products like the above for use by partners in their activities; and access to the company's in-house expertise to develop product with similar benefits, targeted to a partner's need.
