An internationally renowned polymer chemist and electrochemist, Dr. Holdcroft has developed an entire class of innovative, advanced functional materials and the tools for their characterization. Prior to becoming Chair of the SFU Chemistry Department and Technical Director of CaRPE-FC, Canada's National fuel cell research network, Dr. Holdcroft led the membrane-electrode assemblies team at the NRC - Institute for Fuel Cell Innovation.
With extensive and varied device-end experience with anion-exchange membranes in challenging conditions, Ben is taking Aemion to device integrators around the world. A soon-to-be Ph.D. from the Holdcroft group, Benjamin is part of the initial cohort of scientist-entrepreneurs who will receive a Graduate Certificate in Science and Technology Commercialization from the Beedie School of Business.
The Senior Research Associate of the Holdcroft Group and a former membrane project leader with Ballard Power Systems, Dr. Peckham has been involved in the research and development of ion-exchange membranes for over 16 years and has extensive experience with taking lab-scale advanced polymers to pilot-scale production. As a member of Dr. Holdcroft’s team since the inception of the Aemion project, he has been instrumental in making it the versatile material it is today.
With a Ph.D. in electrochemistry and an MBA from the Sauder School of Business at UBC, Dr. Navessin founded Pacific Rim Research Inc. and is the Managing Director of CaRPE-FC. He is experienced in the early-stage growth of technology-based ventures and well-connected to the local business community.
Aemion is stable across a wide range of pH and temperature - suitable for many next-generation electrochemical devices.
With over 3x the toughness of Nafion® under all conditions, Aemion brings the mechanical strength necessary to the most challenging applications.
Integrators have reported very high current densities using Aemion as AEM and Ionomer making these materials very promising for high performance operation in electrolyzers, reverse electrodialysis, and more.
Manufactured and cast in Vancouver, BC, our highly qualified team uses the best technologies available to ensure the consistent quality of Aemion.
Engage in a prototyping relationship with us, and we can adapt Aemion to the specifications of your anion-exchange application.
After winning their 2015 Coast Capital Venture Prize, Ionomr's team and technology were featured by Simon Fraser University.
Ionomr was featured in the Financial post as part of coverage on lab-to-market entrepreneurial ventures.
Ionomr won the Hong Kong - Canada Venture Prize, after competing with university-derived tech startups from across Canada.
We offer a full range of membranes and ionomer solutions.
