Global Cleantech 100 Names Ioxus To Prestigious List

Every year, the Cleantech Group, a leading research firm focused on global cleantech innovation, makes a careful selection of the 100 private companies most likely to make a significant impact in the market within the next decade. On Monday, Ioxus was added to this year’s list out of more than 4,000 nominees, and we expect to fulfill the expectations of that honor.

Global consumption of ultracapacitors is on the rise; we should see $1.16 billion in ultracapacitor purchases by 2015 and $7 billion by 2020. Obviously, it’s an important time for this technology, and an important time to parse out which ultracapacitor designers and manufacturers will lead the market. Ioxus has differentiated itself from other players with our efforts to decrease the cost and increase the energy and power density, reliability and performance of ultracaps to support alternative energy applications around the world.

We appreciate Cleantech Group’s confirmation of Ioxus’ achievements and promise. We were among more than 4,000 nominees evaluated by a panel of 70 cleantech experts. This is a well-vetted recognition that has quickly gained recognition as a leading resource in the cleantech sector.

The complete list of 100 companies is being revealed today at the Global Cleantech 100 Summit & Gala in Washington, D.C. http://events.cleantech.com/global100/. Global Cleantech 100 companies will be featured at this event as well as at the Guardian’s Cleantech Summit in London on 22 November, 2011 (http://www.guardian.co.uk/cleantech-summit).

  • uSTART® Lead-Free Replacement for Truck Batteries

    ONEONTA, N.Y.Jan. 9, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Ioxus uSTART® has received two fleet industry awards for sustainability by eliminating lead-acid batteries with its ultracapacitor-based, drop-in battery replacement.

    "With uSTART, fleets not only realize the benefits of improved starting reliability, there are equally important and real sustainability improvements from lead waste reduction," said Chad Hall, executive vice president and co-founder of Ioxus. "By replacing one of the batteries on a vehicle with a uSTART module, up to 15 fewer batteries are needed over the lifetime of the vehicle. This translates into 1,000 pounds of lead that will never need to be disposed of or allowed to affect groundwater."

    EU legislation on batteries is embodied in the European Battery Directive.  Its objective is to contribute to the preservation and improvement of environmental quality by minimizing the negative impact of batteries and battery waste.  As these preservation efforts expand, sustainable technologies develop to manage and mitigate these risks.

    Replacing a lead-acid battery with uSTART in a typical commercial vehicle creates measurable environmental benefits:
