ENrG President John Olenick was an invited speaker at the American Ceramic Society's 2nd Ceramic Leadship Summit in Baltimore, Md.

Since 1960, the planet has changed due to increasing levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. Similar increases over the next 50 years will reach a level beyond that which is comfortable for all species. At the same time, the global demand for energy, water and food will soar. Today's commercialization efforts of fuel cell technology and other advanced energy methods can be an important piece of the overall solution to provide more clean energy. Ceramic components are becoming increasingly important in the cleantech market space providing means for ion transport, thermal management, catalysis of gases and liquids, power generation, energy storage, hydrogen purification and storage generation of light, and energy from waste processes.

Advantages of Using Thin E-Strate®

Thin E-Strate® for active or passive device fabrication. More robust than silicon.

As a ceramic, 3YSZ is inert, of high purity, tolerates processing temperatures to 1200°C, and with its low thermal mass can tolerate high thermal shock during deposition or coating processes.

Being ultra thin to 20 microns thick, it presents a very low thermal resistance path for heat removal and a super thin profile for component coating.  Multi-layers of active layer coated Thin E-Strate® can easily be stacked into low profile components.
