  • Market Size
  • Metal Recycling
  • Consumer electronics market size 5 to 10B per
    year. The cathode is 50 of the cost of the
    battery cell hence, cathodes occupy 1B per
    year of the consumer electronics battery market.
    Additionally, Decreasing the cost of the cathode
    would result in a 2 to 3B market opportunity
    for cathode materials in the automotive market.
  • Urea Sensor
  • Today, the market size is approximately 700,000
    units per year. This is expected to grow to
    2,000,000 units by 2016. At 30/sensor, this
    translates to a 60M market.
  • Other Economic Objectives
  • Over 100M in new product sales by year 5
  • New jobs pay nearly double the local prevailing
  • Committee Concerns
  • Projects are essentially separate, result
    untenable management plan

    recycling process and alternate pathways

  • Goal
  • To establish an Innovation Platform for Solar
    Photovoltaics (IPSPV) at the University of
    Toledo, which will support the near-term
    commercialization goals of four Ohio-based
    companies. In each case, the collaborators have a
    product that requires additional PV research in
    order to accelerate market entry and sales growth

  • Market Size
  • WK The US electricity market was 400B in 2009.
    Costs of electricity are going up at rate of 7
    per year, accelerating the time to grid parity
    cross over for PV. The US Electricity market had
    1000 GW of capacity in 2006.
  • Isofoton the HCPV market is currently 0.5 of
    the worldwide PV Market. The PV market has grown
    at about 40 year on year for last 15 years with
    26 GW installed in 2011. So the size of the
    market in 2001 was roughly 120 MW. Isofoton
    expects the HCPV market will grow at about
    40/yr., which translates to a size of 168 MW in
    2012, 235 in 2013, 329 in 2014, 461 in 2015, 646
    in 2016

  • The team will characterize, grow, pattern, and
    otherwise process compound semiconductor samples
    and give advice and recommendations regarding the
    design of a proposed cryogenic electro-optic
    probe station. Two of the projectsthe
    development of new infrared-detector arrays and
    the growth of bulk gallium nitride (GaN)clearly
    advance the state of the art and can be
    accomplished in the 3-year timeframe.

    GaN wafer project to show a profit in the
    foreseeable future.
  • Distinct impression that the project is designed
    more to provide opportunities for NWL than to
    create jobs or economic impact in Ohio
  • General lack of overlap between the MPM project
    and the rest of the group
