Executive interview – Nanoco Group
Nanoco CEO, Michael Edelman, discusses the company’s agreement with a large, undisclosed US-listed corporation, where Nanoco is being funded by the partner to scale up and produce commercial volumes of infrared nano-particles for sensor applications. He explains why the company’s IP and expertise in developing and scaling up production were key to winning this business. Moving on to other applications, he discusses the factors which have held up progress in the display market and also the advances Nanoco is making in horticultural lighting and healthcare imaging. He rounds up by explaining how the company is now on a much stronger financial footing, with costs substantially reduced and cash due to come in from the US partner and HMRC tax credits.
