Aether Catalyst $ATHR is working on a catalytic converter that does not use precious metals – palladium, platinum or rhodium – uses base metals and could save OEMs billions and help stop theft!
Aether $ATHR is working on a #technology that could assist in reducing urban #pollution and #carbonemissions by adding inexpensive #catalyticconverters to small motors such as lawn mowers, leaf blowers and generators – a vast unaddressed global market.
CSE’s Anil Mall was joined by Paul Woodward, President, and Greg James, COO of Aether Catalyst Solutions, Inc. (CSE:ATHR) to share how the company is progressing its research in developing a low-cost, high-performance, three-way catalyst to replace the costly precious metals currently utilized in automotive catalytic converters.
In this three-way conversation, Paul and Greg explain the cost ramifications of developing a base metal catalyst (2:39), how Greg is applying his 20 years of experience from Ballard Power (7:21), and why OEMs like Ford and Volkswagen are looking for a lower cost catalytic converter (13:56).
Listen until the end to learn about the chemistry of what happens in a catalytic converter, why their company doesn’t need a marketing department, and why 90% cost reduction for catalytic converters is the ultimate goal.
