Top British Nanofirms win Business Innovation Awards

Abstract:
Three top British nanotechnology firms whose innovations make solar cells more efficient, help in the fight against heart disease, and improve the production of fine chemical compounds won Business Innovation Awards today at the UK NanoForum & Emerging Technologies Conference 2009.

The Business Innovation Award winners are:

Materials & Devices: Promethean Particles from Nottingham won the award for the development and manufacture of dispersed high specification inorganic nanoparticles, with applications in green energy storage, such as more efficient solar cells, and healthcare. Accepting the award, Sandy Gordon commented: "This is great recognition of our achievements. We already have customers overseas, but this award will increase our profile."

Life Sciences and Healthcare: University College London (UCL) Centre and Regenerative Medicine won for its surgical implant using nanocomposites and stem cell technology, which will make a highly positive impact on a new generation of heart valve substitutes and coronary artery bypass grafts. Professor Alexander Seifalian said: "I'm extremely pleased at this recognition for University College London and our team. I hope this will help push our medical implant forward by commercialisation."

Energy and Environment: AM Technology, from Runcorn in Cheshire, has developed a new flow reactor for the continuous manufacture of chemical compounds for the pharmaceutical industry, which looks set to drastically improve manufacturing yields for the UK. AM Technology's Robert Ashe commented: "We are extremely grateful to UKTI and NanoKTN. As a small company, this recognition can only help to raise our profile."
