Inclusion in the GoingGreen 100 signifies major developments in the creation of new business opportunities in the green technology industries. Wildcat Discovery Technologies was selected by the AlwaysOn editorial team and industry experts based on a set of five criteria: innovation, market potential, commercialization, stakeholder value, and media buzz.
Wildcat Discovery Technologies and the GoingGreen Top 100 Companies will be honored at GoingGreen West on September 14th - 16th, 2009 at Cavallo Point in Sausalito, CA.
“We at Wildcat Discovery Technologies are proud to be recognized for our innovative and unique approach to materials discovery,” said Mark Gresser, CEO and President of Wildcat. “We see clean energy technology advancement as vital to our nation’s future. Through the use of our proprietary discovery tools, Wildcat is uniquely positioned to provide breakthrough materials that will help lead to these advancements.”
Wildcat is currently conducting research in multiple areas related to clean tech materials: Li-ion battery electrodes and electrolytes; catalysts and hydrogen storage materials for fuel cells; and low cost printable inks for photovoltaic solar cells.
Wildcat’s high throughput workflows integrate all aspects of materials discovery: reaction planning, reaction preparation, synthesis, assay, and data analysis. These workflows are based on synthetic techniques capable of producing materials in bulk form without the limitations of typical high throughput synthetic techniques. These high throughput synthesis platforms integrate directly with Wildcat’s proprietary assay technologies. Together, the workflows allow Wildcat’s scientists to synthesize and screen more compounds in a day than most labs do in a year, enabling breakthrough materials discovery for the next generation of clean energy technologies.
“The GoingGreen Top 100 winners have excelled in key strategic areas in the global clean energy technology markets,” said Tony Perkins, founder and CEO of AlwaysOn. “We congratulate them for their success in introducing new tools, services, and systems that are driving the next phase of greentech innovation and transforming the biggest industries on earth.”
