Emerging Tech Forum: Highly Selective Replacement Catalysts and Supercomposite Armor Materials

by Brian Fletcher on March 16, 2009

Wednesday, March 25, 2009 4:00 p.m. – 5:15 p.m

Precious metals-based catalysts such as platinum and rhodium provide a critical role in emissions control, petroleum refining, and pharmaceutical and chemical manufacture. SDCmaterials has developed a unique materials processing and integration platform that delivers drop-in replacement catalysts with superior reaction properties at substantial savings when compared to traditional precious metals-based catalysts.

Today’s most advanced body armor strike plates are susceptible to incidental failure, and are vulnerable to second-shot armor piercing rounds. SDCmaterials has developed a unique manufacturing process, that incorporates their high strength nanomaterials to produce extremely durable supercomposite armor plates that next-generation ballistic threats.

Maximilian A. Biberger, Ph.D., CEO & Chairman of SDCmaterials

Maximilian Biberger is currently the CEO & Chairman of SDCmaterials of Tempe, AZ, a materials innovator. Prior to SDCmaterials, Biberger was the President & COO of Supercritical Systems Inc. (SSI) in Gilbert, AZ, a wholly owned subsidiary of Tokyo Electron Limited (TEL Ltd.).

SSI was a start up company in the area of advanced wafer cleaning using supercritical CO2 (SCCO2). The company was run by Biberger and his partner Robert Koch, the president. After SSI was acquired by TEL, Biberger stayed on as the President & COO. Prior to SSI he was the Director of Technology at Novellus Systems in San Jose, CA.

Prior to Novellus, Biberger was the Manager for Process Development at Varian thin Film Systems. He graduated from the University of Erlangen – Nuremberg (Germany) in 1989 with a doctorate degree in Materials Science and Physics.
