BESSTECH’s Innovative Battery Technology is Highlighted During Featured Presentations at SEMICON West 2015

CEO Fernando Gómez-Baquero delivers invited remarks at the event’s Silicon Innovation Forum and Semiconductor Technology Symposium

Albany, NY - BESSTECH LLC, a developer of innovative components that improve lithium-ion battery performance with reduced cost, was well represented at leading semiconductor industry tradeshow SEMICON West 2015 as CEO Fernando Gómez-Baquero delivered presentations on July 14 at two of the event's high-profile gatherings.


BESSTECH was among the start-up companies seeking investment capital that was invited to present at the Silicon Innovation Forum. Gómez-Baquero discussed how the advent of roll-to-roll (R2R) semiconductor processing - which enables BESSTECH's low-cost, high-performance, silicon-based anodes for lithium-ion battery applications - can serve the needs of both the traditional lithium-ion and growing solid-state battery space, driving significant performance improvements along with dramatic cost reductions.

Later that day, Gómez-Baquero spoke at a Semiconductor Technology Symposium panel exploring opportunities for IDMs, foundries and semiconductor supply chain providers to expand into adjacent markets. BESSTECH was featured as one of the companies that has successfully penetrated emerging opportunities by applying more efficient semiconductor processing techniques into lithium-ion battery formats.

"BESSTECH is delighted to have had the opportunity to share its innovative technology with participants and attendees at the seminal SEMICON West 2015 tradeshow," said Gómez-Baquero. "By integrating the technology roadmap and process know-how of the semiconductor industry, BESSTECH is poised to capitalize on the need for more energetic, lighter and faster lithium-ion batteries to serve the fast-growing global market for both consumer and industrial solutions."

BESSTECH's anode technology, which is exclusively licensed from SUNY Polytechnic Institute's Colleges of Nanoscale Science and Engineering (CNSE), can produce lighter lithium-ion batteries that charge faster - with charging rates as low as 6 minutes - have longer times between charging, and offer increased lifetimes of more than 1,000 cycles.

GreenFasten™ solar panel roof mount hardware, watertight, USA made

GreenFasten™ solar panel roof mount hardware, watertight, USA made

The GreenFasten™ - GF1 system utilizes the patented watertight technology EcoFasten Solar® is known for. The flashing is fit with our EPDM rubber bushing and when used with a compatible EcoFasten Solar compression bracket (milled with countersink), a watertight seal is created, which protects the integrity of the roof. Requiring just a single fastener (lag bolt or self-drilling), GreenFasten provides the fastest install in the industry and will not void roofing manufacturer's warranties. Backed by IAPMO certification, GreenFasten delivers a mounting solution for all new or existing (retrofit) composition shingle roofs, and is the most cost-effective solution available. Like all of the solar roof mount solutions in our line of products, GreenFasten is made in the USA using recycled materials.
