Pittsburgh Iron Oxides LLC (PIROX)
PITTSBURGH IRON OXIDES LLC (“PIROX”) manufactures 98%+ pure synthetic magnetite (SuperMagnetiteTM). SuperMagnetiteTM has a unique combination of magnetic properties (remnance, saturation, and coercivity) which are derived from its purity, particle size (2 to 10 microns), and particle shape. These attributes allow PIROX to compete strongly in some very large markets that include the manufacture of anodes, rust inhibition, pollution control (mercury and sulfur-dioxide removal), and the manufacture of iron phosphate for the food and batteries market.
Founded in 2003 to develop the groundbreaking Wireless Power Platform concept, Powercast is a pioneer in wire-free power that enables manufacturers to overcome the limitations of conventional power solutions. Powercast holds numerous wirefree power technology patents and patent applications.
SenSevere has developed and is commercializing a hydrogen sensor for chemically and thermally severe environments that provides real-time safety and compliance monitoring solutions in the power generation, environmental, and chemicals manufacturing industries.
SolePower creates self-charging wearables that capture wasted energy from human motion. Electronics can be powered solely by footsteps—creating “unplugged” technology that doesn’t need to be charged.
SolePower smart work boots (“SmartBoots”) collect motion and location data, providing industrial workforces with actionable insights to increase efficiency and reduce accidents. Embedded in the boot is a patented kinetic charger that generates power with every step. The system gathers and provides insights and data to improve worker safety by visualizing location and motion of workers on hazardous sites.
