Ilika announces a commercially-funded project to develop game-changing energy materials in collaboration with the Toyota Research Institute ("TRI") in the USA.
Candidate materials will be made and tested using Ilika's unique high throughput platform. Promising materials will be further scaled-up by Toyota and its suppliers for deployment in its future low-emission vehicles.
This project will combine Ilika's thin film solid-state materials synthesis and characterization technology, with Toyota's automotive leadership.
Commenting on this collaboration, Graeme Purdy, Ilika CEO, said: "We are delighted to have broadened and deepened our relationship with the Toyota Group. Toyota is demonstrating global vision in the innovation and implementation of leading-edge technology in next generation automotives."
