PRESS RELEASE
EEStor, Inc. Announces an Update and a Correction to Last Week's Press Release on Their Relative Permittivity Certification Results
Last update: 5:37 p.m. EDT April 27, 2009
CEDAR PARK, Texas, April 27, 2009 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- CEDAR PARK, Texas, April 27 /PRNewswire/ -- EEStor, Inc. announces an update and a correction to last week's press release on their relative permittivity certification results. The update is on temperature range certification results and also correcting the information on Dr. Edward D. Golla, Ph.D.
The third party certification tests were witnessed by Dr. Edward D. Golla, Ph.D., an independent consultant. The test results were performed on EEStor's hot pressed dielectric layers produced from both their patented and patent pending Composition Modified Barium-Titanate Powders and their production line. Dr. Edward D. Golla, Ph.D. certificated that EEStor's hot pressed dielectric layers have met and/or exceeded a relative permittivity of 22,500 over a temperature range of -20 and 65 degrees centigrade.
EEStor feels this is a huge milestone which opens the advancement of key products and services in the electrical energy storage markets of today. The automotive and renewable energy sectors are a few of the key markets that would benefit greatly with the technology.
About Dr. Edward D. Golla, Ph.D.
Edward D. Golla graduated from the University of Texas at Austin in 1971 with a Ph.D. in Analytical Chemistry. He has been an employee of and later a consultant for TRACOR Inc. Dr. Golla has also taught Chemistry and Instrumental Analysis at schools such as St. Edwards University and Southwestern University of Georgetown, TX. He has been an employee of Texas Research International since 1975 and is currently Laboratory Director at that company
Company background
EEStor, Inc. develops solid-state electrical energy storage units (EESU's) in the form of batteries and capacitors. This technology has a wide variety of application use which includes with the added benefit of being longer lasting, lighter, more powerful, and more environmentally friendly than current technology in use.

Wow, at 1 Volt!
not really impressive is it. do you know any cars that can run off 1 volt?

Steve321 said...

No, but it's enough voltage for the blogger with the bag over his head to play with his rubber ducky.

Bretspot said...

Someone who knows, would you kindly provide me a link to where I can buy some material that has these properties..
Oh wait... you can't find any.
;)

How come all the nay-sayers show up to these weenie roasts first?

Glad you idiots -- AAron and Steve321 --- could stop by to put your ignorance on full display for the most important 3rd party validation of EEStor's technology to date.

According to Rudyard Istivan, a competitor to EEStor not only is it very impressive but also he may rethink further investments in one of his businesses as a result of this press release.

I recommend you follow up with Penn State and Georgia Tech on the significance of this. I already have and expect they'll be the first to serve up the CROW nice and warm to any takers.

YUM YUM!!

Nice investigative reporting, B. Someone should see if they could wrangle you a spot on "60 Minutes" ;p Kudos, this is huge.

Bretspot said...

ITS MARK!!! lol Hi :)

Dang, wish EEStory.com wasn't super hosed right now.

Mark said...

Hmmm another Mark ...

Nice work the temp stability is huge and the info that itis a sintered part is very good.

Is it actually component or is it JUST the ceramic ? It sounds like the test is only on a ceramic part dielectric ...

B, you did it again! You ferreted out the news that testing was done at multiple temperatures and goaded EEStor into modifying their press release. That's investigative reporting at its best.

JoelSapp said...

I actually think the most interesting thing about this all is the fact that this came from their production line.

We already heard that they tested a hockey puck looking sample and this came from their production line. I would say they are much further down the road than a press release about some research project.

I wouldn't be surprised if these are in Zenn Concept Cars with in the next couple months.

Now, how does EESTOR get these into other cars ? Many cars weigh over 3000lbs, and the Tesla is oh so close to 3K lbs. Maybe Zenn will just sell its licenses.

@JoelSapp:

Zenn has worldwide exclusive rights to use EEStor’s EESU in the following markets:

* All-electric 4-wheeled personal transportation uses for vehicles with a curb weight up to 1,400 kilograms, net of the battery weight, and
* For golf carts and similar-styled utility vehicles, and
* The aftermarket conversion of any internal combustion passenger vehicle to electric drive

JoelSapp said...

@lxicon

I just wonder if it will be in the best interest of Zenn or EESTOR to be the only car manufacturer with this tech. There seem to be 3 options for car makers (if EESTOR proves to be hot)
1. Develop a patent that is very similar but not exactly the same as EESTOR
2. Buy up Zenn and sell its licenses or Zenn sells a portion of its license.
3. Make cars over 1400kg.

Anyway, I am getting ahead of the situation. I would like to see if we can find out more about the production setup that is mentioned in the press release.
