Advanced Material Development recently announced its selection as one of eleven SME’s for the 2022 Faraday Investment Program. The program will invest up to £330 million in research and innovation projects and facilities to promote the battery business in the UK.
Through its expertise in 2D nanomaterials, AMD has been able to produce a variety of robust printed structures for electrodes, strain sensing and thermal interfaces that show improved conductivity and mechanical flexibility whilst dramatically improving sustainability.
John Lee, Chief Executive Officer of AMD, said: "This potential investment will significantly enhance AMD’s ability to rapidly advance our materials technology development and work with our supply chain to further embed our technology in this fast-growing sector. In addition to battery related work, we have also developed advanced EMI shielding products which help to mitigate high frequency switching noise within the electrical management and motor systems with obvious implications for the automotive industry."
