Vistex Composites: Enabling Broader Adoption of Composites with Improved Manufacturing Methods
Vistex Composites is solving a big problem for the manufacturing sector. Traditional methods and processes are lengthy and expensive.
Eliminating Hexavalent Chromium from the Coating Industry
Corrosion and wear are two major problems with manufacturing metals. The impacts of corrosion costs industry around $2.5T. Current solutions, such as hexavalent chromium and cadmium, are ineffective and dangerous. Creating a better solution for corrosion can protect the environment. A durable corrosion resistant coating can address all the issues enable the future. This is what Mehdi Kargar, CEO of Maxterials, is solving.
The Leading Edge Of Solar Wafers
The solar industry is booming, and it is going to keep accelerating – solar is here to stay, and Leading Edge is innovating to improve on energy generation in solar cells.

Wildfire, You’ve Met Your Match
Wildfires are not only devastating to communities and habitats, but also to economies. The need for powerful new firefighting capabilities is higher than it’s ever been, and growing. The urgency to bring more technology to this market has never been stronger.
How To Deliver Supply Chain Transparency And Equity In Farming
Throughout the pandemic, sustainability and quality are back in focus for many brands, since consumers are paying attention to these issues and are willing to pay for a better product. David Davies took time to discuss how AgUnity is helping by providing transparency to the supply chain.
Executive Insight: Executing International Green Hydrogen Projects
So when I say circular economy, I mean that a population of 10,000 generates the waste that is just the right amount to power the vehicles that are owned by these 10,000 people.
The magic mix needed to get to $1.50/kg Hydrogen – Origen Hydrogen’s solid state electrolyzer innovation
Not even the best policy environments can overcome the reality of physics and unit economics. Cheaper materials to produce more efficient and affordable electrolyzers will enable low cost production of green hydrogen, but some rather steep market milestones still need to be met. Getting electrolyzers to a scale that enables sub $1.50 / kilo of hydrogen is a major milestone that will enable incredible decarbonization across the board.
