The Critical Hydrogen Fuel Cell Accessory - ICAP Patent Brokerage Announces Sale of Patented Advance

Chicago, IL | Posted on May 5th, 2011

Background:

As hydrogen fuel cells become part of America's new energy infrastructure, the need for related technology - such as hydrogen sensors - will grow accordingly. In addition, Hydrogen (H2) gas is widely used for various applications in laboratories as well as industrial and manufacturing set-ups. Since hydrogen is highly inflammable, its detection is of high importance for safety and security purposes.

Key Characteristics & Benefits

Patents in this portfolio disclose the following:

- Metal-alloy nanoparticles (palladium and silver) are key to sensor

technology. ANI's manufacturing techniques enable the generation of

nanoparticles in any desired size or arrangement.

- A working prototype. This ready-to-market portfolio can readily equip

the buyer with the knowledge to immediately begin manufacturing and

commercializing the products and services suitable for present and

future applications.

- A technology-transfer platform. Access the knowledge and technical

know-how of the ANI engineering team. The ANI team will also impart

training sessions on various manufacturing and marketing/sales

techniques to facilitate smooth transfer of the technology to the

buyer.

- Superior performance. Easy detection of variable concentrations (below

LFL) of hydrogen gas using same nanoparticle sensor. Overcomes the

limitations of specific temperature and environmental conditions for

hydrogen detection. Sensors which can detect hydrogen gas over a wide

range of temperature and environmental conditions.

- Superior manufacturing process. These disclosed nanoparticles

fabrication techniques save effort, time, and cost for the

manufacturers, and simultaneously enable producing low-cost, compact,

durable, and easily maintainable hydrogen sensors.

- The patents and the patent applications of this portfolio cover various

jurisdictions including the US, Canada, Europe, China, Japan, and South

Korea.


Market Potential


The hydrogen sensor market is rapidly evolving and it is the most opportune time for a buyer to acquire a patent portfolio. This portfolio should be of interest to companies active in various sectors, such as oil and gas, automobile and transportation, petrochemicals, power transformers, food processing, micro-chips (including MEMS) manufacturing, aviation, and medical diagnostics.


- Globally, the overall sensor market is estimated to reach $91.5

billion, while the chemical and biosensor market is estimated to be

worth $21 billion by 2016.(1)

- The US hydrogen sensor market was expected to reach $1.6 billion in

2010.(2)

- With the advent of hydrogen (e.g., hydrogen fuel cells) powered

automotive cars, an investment of $200 billion would be required to

cater to the US automotive market alone.(3)
