Hyperion Catalysis hires Al Metauro as Business Development Manager
Cambridge, MA | Posted on July 28, 2006
Hyperion Catalysis International, the Carbon Nanotube
Company, is pleased to announce the hiring of Al Metauro as Business Development
Manager. Al is charged with growing Hyperion’s business for multi-walled carbon nanotubes
as catalyst supports and other related applications.
Hyperion’s FIBRIL™ carbon nanotubes,
when formulated into catalyst carriers, offer unique properties and advantages over
conventional materials. Al has over twenty-five years of experience in the global catalyst and
nanotechnology markets and has developed new businesses at major catalyst, catalyst
carrier and advanced materials companies such as Norton (now the Norpro division of Saint
Gobain) and Degussa, and recently headed up the marketing and commercial development
efforts at a nanotechnology start-up company involved in emission control catalysis.
About Hyperion Catalysis International:
Hyperion Catalysis International, headquartered in Cambridge, Mass., has nearly 25 years of
experience in nanotube technology. The company – which was the first to synthesize
nanotubes in 1983 – is the world’s leader, producing tens of tons per year of multi-walled
carbon nanotube products, which are sold under the tradename FIBRIL™. The nanotubes
make normally non-conductive materials, such as thermoplastics, electrostatically conductive.
FIBRIL brand masterbatch products are currently available for a wide range of plastics
compounds. Carbon nanotubes are also of interest in several other applications, including
fuel cells, super-capacitors and in filtration.
