Abstract:
Manchester based, Nanoco Technologies, manufacturer of heavy metal free quantum dots, has won the UKTI Business Innovation Award in the category of Clean Technologies.

Manchester based, Nanoco Technologies, manufacturer of heavy metal free quantum dots, has won the UKTI Business Innovation Award in the category of Clean Technologies.
The award was presented at the UK Nanoforum event run by the UK Trade & Industry and attended by ca. 350 people from around the world.

Nanoco Scoops Clean Technology Award

Manchester, UK | Posted on November 1st, 2008

Dr Sergio Kapusta, Chief Technology Officer of Shell Global Solutions International presented the award. He highlighted Nanoco Technologies' pioneering work in getting quantum dots into a number of green technology applications such as printable solar cells and solid state lighting and was excited to learn about the scale up technology which enables Nanoco to supply its customers with large amounts of quantum dots and thus open up this technology for mass market applications.

Dr Michael Edelman who received the award on behalf of Nanoco Technologies gave special thanks to the Nanoco Team for their dedication and continued ability to innovate: ‘This award is an important recognition for the work we have been doing in commercializing quantum dots for use in clean technology applications. As the winner of the category, Nanoco Technologies also received a free exhibitor pod at Tokyo nano tech 2009, the worlds' largest nanotechnology show which is held in February 2009.

About Nanoco Technologies
Nanoco Technologies partners major R&D and blue-chip industrial organisations in the development of applications incorporating semiconductor nanoparticles, “quantum dots”.

Nanoco Technologies is unique in the nanomaterials market as a company that manufacture large quantities of quantum dots. Our molecular seeding process for the bespoke manufacture of these quantum dots on a commercial scale is protected by worldwide patents.

The bulk manufacture of quantum dots provides our partners with the platform to develop a wide variety of next-generation products, particularly in the fields of electronics, lighting, biomedical and PV solar cells. Nanoco Technologies is the only manufacturer presently able to supply production quantities of quantum dots which do not use a regulated heavy metal. We are the only manufacturer able to respond to orders for large quantities of bespoke quantum dots, and we are leading the way in the custom-functionalisation of quantum dots for chemical linkage into biological and other specific uses.

Nanoco Technologies’ research and manufacturing headquarters was established in Manchester (UK) in 2001. The company currently operates facilities in the UK and Japan.
