Corning Licenses GEO2 Patent Portfolio (posted 10/6/09)
GEO2 Technologies, Inc. and Corning Inc. recently announced a licensing agreement that provides Corning access to GEO2’s worldwide patent portfolio. Corning may leverage this technology to develop, manufacture, and sell future applications of its aluminum titanate and cordierite diesel and gasoline emissions control technologies. Terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
GEO2 Technologies is a materials science company that provides a patented cross-linked microstructure (CLM™) for advanced filtration, complex chemical reactions and medical devices. For emissions control applications, GEO2’s microstructure technology is based on its ability to combine high porosity and high strength while maintaining high trapping efficiency and delivering lower back pressure. CLM is offered in multiple materials (oxides, non-oxides and metals) that are extruded using industry-standard processes.
