e1 is, first and foremost, a technology driven product development company specializing in small-scale and micro-scale chemical and engineering processes for the energy sector. They are not a manufacturer, although they do take projects through the prototype, or proof-of-concept, phase. From there they work closely with contract manufacturing firms to establish a robust and low-cost supply chain for their licensing partners.
Their success results from partnering with other firms who can provide channel access (either directly or indirectly through distributors or strategic partners). This business model, in which e1 licenses rights to manufacture and sell the technology, provides the following benefits to our partners:
Access to customized designs and novel technology at low cost
Rapid path to commercial product
Flexibility-e1 may work independently or in collaboration with partners
Element 1 Corp (dba e1) is a leading developer of small-scale to micro-scale clean energy technologies, including advanced hydrogen generation systems, flare-gas refinement solutions, and gas-to-liquid processes. The Company collaborates with strategic partners to aggregate technology and expertise resulting in state-of-the-art chemical process systems to support alternative and clean energy. Novel technology is licensed to e1 partners, enabling application of technologies across a wide range of products, markets, and applications.
With expertise in small-scale reactor design, e1 offers solutions for on-site hydrogen generation (fuel cells and industrial manufacturing) and truck-transportable flare-gas remediation processes. e1 has just completed (December 2015) a fourteen-month development program resulting in an ultra-compact, containerized, associated-gas refinement unit that produces fuel-quality gas for combustion in engines. This work was done in collaboration with the channel partner and world-class contract manufacturing partner.
