OLED manufacturing improvements goal of $2.9M DOE grant to Moser Baer

June 14, 2011
Canandaigua, NY--Moser Baer Technologies (MBT) was selected by The U.S. DOE to receive a $2.9 million dollar grant to improve OLED manufacture.

Canandaigua, NY--Moser Baer Technologies (MBT), the U.S.-based subsidiary of Moser Baer India headquartered in New Delhi, was selected by The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) to receive a $2.9 million dollar grant to enable green energy research and development designed to accelerate the use of innovative organic light-emitting diode (OLED)-based solid-state lighting technologies.

The project, one of just eight funded by DOE nationwide, is designed to reduce the cost of manufacturing high-efficiency OLED lighting panels through the development and deployment of improved processing techniques. MBT will use its operations at the College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering’s (CNSE) Smart System Technology & Commercialization Center of Excellence (STC) in Canandaigua, the world’s first pilot production facility for OLED panels, to demonstrate these manufacturing improvements. The $17 million MBT investment at CNSE’s STC will create more than 50 high-tech jobs by 2013 and further build New York’s world-class resources to support clean and environmentally friendly energy technologies.

U.S. Senator Charles E. Schumer said, "This is a smart investment in a cutting-edge facility that is creating good-paying private-sector jobs and bringing a new employer to the region. I've championed the STC Center of Excellence from its earliest days because of its ability to induce new jobs and employers like Moser Baer, and will continue to do everything I can to boost this facility that has been a shot in the arm to our local economy."

CNSE senior VP and CEO Alain E. Kaloyeros said, "We congratulate Moser Baer Technologies, a key anchor partner at CNSE’s Smart System Technology & Commercialization Center of Excellence, on the receipt of this critical funding from the U.S Department of Energy. Through the partnership between Moser Baer and CNSE’s STC, and with the support of the world-class capabilities at CNSE’s Albany NanoTech Complex, we look forward to accelerating the development of important clean energy technologies while concurrently building additional assets that will attract new green technology jobs, companies and investment to Western New York."
Integrated into CNSE in a partnership of two of New York’s Centers of Excellence following a merger in September 2010, CNSE’s STC provides certified cleanroom space for fabrication and packaging of MEMS devices, and leverages CNSE’s $7 billion Albany NanoTech Complex, which features 80,000 square feet of Class 1 capable cleanrooms equipped with leading-edge tools and state-of-the-art capabilities to accelerate 21st century nanotechnology innovations.
