Abstract:
Visit Highlights Company’s Technology Innovation and Manufacturing Leadership on State and Global Level

California Secretary of State Tours QuantumSphere, Inc.

Santa Ana, CA | Posted on March 10, 2006

California Secretary of State, Bruce McPherson, recently visited QuantumSphere, the leading manufacturer of nanoscale metals and alloys for applications in energy, electronics, aerospace and other markets demanding advanced materials. McPherson met with the company's top management and scientists to learn more about the company and this rapidly emerging technology that offers dramatic performance advances in a number of applications including high performance batteries and renewable energy devices such as micro fuel cells for portable power.

"California's role as the gateway to the world provides a unique opportunity to be involved in new emerging markets," said Secretary McPherson. "In order to be competitive in the global marketplace, we must build a California that is ready to compete globally for generations to come," McPherson added.

Discussion with the Secretary focused on the role of nanometals and alloys as a revolutionary solution to fundamental challenges associated with cost and performance in critical consumer and industrial applications; partnerships with global chemical, scientific, educational and governmental entities that QuantumSphere has developed to validate new material uses and drive the technology and commercialization forward; the role of California-based companies in continuing to position the state as a world center of innovation; and environmental and safety issues associated with the manufacture and use of nanomaterials in consumer and industrial products. The Secretary toured the QuantumSphere’s R&D and manufacturing facilities and participated in hands-on demonstrations using QSI-Nano™ metals and alloys for various applications in batteries, fuel cells and water electrolysis. The tour commenced with an overview of the QuantumSphere’s production facility and sophisticated systems required to scale manufacturing and ship commercial products.

"The ability to produce nano metals and alloys in mass quantities while leveraging their use in commercial applications, is truly a disruptive technology which has resulted in significant demand for our products," explained Kevin Maloney, QuantumSphere co-Founder, President and CEO.

"These materials have the potential to generate very fundamental advancements in critical areas of our lives. QuantumSphere’s current IP focus is on end-use applications within the energy sector. Material applications in this and other areas are endless. We are very excited to help the State of California lead the global competitive charge within the nanotechnology sector by working with our customers and partners from our base in Southern California," Maloney added.
