The winners received checks, as well as mentoring and other ACS resources, to help successfully implement their business plans.
AnCatt Inc. had discovered and is developing a unique environmentally compatible high performance anti-corrosion coating platform technology utilizing novel conductive polymer nanodispersion (CPND) as anti-corrosion pigments instead of traditional toxic heavy-metal pigments such as chromate, lead, cadmium. AnCatt CPND perform far superior to the current environmentally compliant zinc/zinc oxide alternatives, and AnCatt CPND can also outperform traditional hexavalent chromate pigments.
SafeLiCell has developed a novel, patent-pending battery electrolyte material, called Lithium Flex, that provides for a lighter, safer, and flexible lithium based energy source. As portable battery-operated devices decrease in size, there is a greater need for batteries to have more power and longer lifetimes, along with versatility of size, shape and weight. Furthermore, the battery industry has been plagued by risks associated with the leakage of flammable/corrosive components, giving rise to safety concerns and resulting in costly recalls. SafeLiCell believes that the conformal and safe nature of our solid-state polymer electrolyte based batteries will revolutionize the market for standalone sensors and miniature devices.
