Elmarco and University of Akron sign agreement

Nov '09
Elmarco s.r.o. has entered into a cooperation agreement with the University of Akron, Ohio, as a new member of the Coalescence Filtration Nanomaterials Consortium (CFNC). Other CFNC associate companies are Ahlstrom, Donaldson, Cummins Filtration, Parker Hannifin Corporation, and MemPro Ceramics.

Elmarco's initial contribution to the consortium is the delivery of unique laboratory equipment for the production of nanofibers, the NanospiderTM Lab Machine. Elmarco's proprietary technology is easily upscaled to industrial levels, which opens great opportunities to explore the results from consortium research projects in commercial uses. Elmarco is the leading supplier of machinery for industrial production of nanofiber materials.

University of Akron has a long and very successful tradition in the research and development of electrospinning processes for nanofiber production and applications. Professors Darrell H. Reneker and George G. Chase are widely considered to be experts in this field. They recognized the huge potential for practical applications of nanofibers, and in 1998, established the CFNC in order to synergize ideas and scientific background of the University with technology transfer experience of the innovative industrial members of the consortium.

The mission of the CFNC is to conduct fundamental research in performance coalescence filters and the design of filter media, including the development and application of nanofibers. The research scope includes theory, modeling, and experiments on capture and coalescence of micron and nanometer size drops and particles in non-woven filter media made of micron and nanometer diameter fibers; methods of nanofiber generation and construction of non-woven media with nanofibers; liquid-liquid and gas-liquid coalescence.
