Home > Press > CAP-XX CEO to Present at Nanotech Northern Europe

Abstract:
Next week, at Nanotech Northern Europe in Copenhagen, Anthony Kongats, CEO for Australia-based CAP-XX Ltd. (LSE:CPX), will share lessons learned while developing his company's nano-structured supercapacitors from government laboratory to today's deployment in space-constrained electronics devices worldwide.

CAP-XX CEO to Present at Nanotech Northern Europe

SYDNEY, Australia | Posted on September 17th, 2008

WHO:

Anthony Kongats founded CAP-XX in 1997 to commercialize the supercapacitor technology spawned by joint research done at the Australian government's premier science and research organization - CSIRO - and Kongats' own electronics company, Energy Storage Systems.

WHAT:

Kongats will share his commercialization challenges and his perspective on the global investment environment for nanotechnology. CAP-XX is the only publicly-listed nanotechnology company being profiled.

CAP-XX chose the Alternative Investment Markets (AIM) in London which had supported similar internationally-focused technology companies and other nanotechnology start-ups such as Oxonica.

Kongats will discuss start-up challenges such as attracting venture funding, readying a technology for production, building a patent portfolio, selling a new concept into a new market, preparing for a public offering and ramping manufacturing capacity to meet demand.

WHERE:

Nanotech Northern Europe, Europe's annual nanotechnology conference organized by Spinverse, Copenhagen, Denmark, September 23 - 25: www.nanotech.net/content/conference

WHEN:

Thursday, September 25 at 11:30 am, Kongats will present during the "Analyst Perspectives" section of "Investing in nanotechnology," a full-day session on the business and investment potential of nanotechnology.

About CAP-XX Ltd.
The CAP-XX nano-structured carbon supercapacitors store energy in tiny cells, then release large bursts of power when needed. For example, mobile phones use supercapacitors to deliver brighter flashes and richer-sounding music, vibration energy-harvesters use them to power data transmission bursts in battery-free condition monitoring systems, and solid state disks (SSDs) rely on them for backup power.

CAP-XX has sold more than 3 million supercapacitors, enabling smaller, thinner, longer-running and more feature-rich space-constrained electronic devices such as camera phones, SSDs, PDAs, wireless sensors and medical devices. Examples include rugged PDAs and Point-of-Sale systems from Banksys, Handheld Products, Intermec, Datalogic and Symbol Technologies, and wireless condition-monitoring systems supporting energy-harvesters.

Sydney, Australia-based CAP-XX is publicly-traded on AIM and has sales offices in the UK and USA. For more information: www.cap-xx.com or
