“The combination of CHASM’s expertise in nanotube enhancement and our deep knowledge of carbon substrates and applications offers us the chance to rapidly advance our understanding of these high-performance, scalable nanomaterials," said Dr. Santrupt B. Misra, CEO, Birla Carbon, director, chemicals and director, group HR, Aditya Birla Group.
“As one of the world’s leading producers of engineered nanomaterials, CHASM looks forward to collaborating with Birla Carbon, who offer us faster access to customers and markets," added David Arthur, CHASM, CEO and co-founder.
Through this joint development agreement, the two companies will share research and engineering resources to develop and manufacture hybrid nanomaterials based on carbon substrates and carbon nanotubes.
These hybrid nanomaterials will combine CHASM’s nanotube enhanced carbon (NTeC) technology with Birla Carbon’s expertise in commercialization and manufacturing. In so doing, the companies anticipate jointly developing novel carbon nanomaterials tailored for performance in a wide variety of demanding applications.
