EnerG2 (http://www.energ2.com), a Seattle-based company manufacturing advanced nano-structured materials for next-generation energy storage applications, today announced that its Albany, Oregon manufacturing facility has become ISO 14001:2004 certified. This certification covers all processes related to energy storage materials manufacturing at the Albany facility and comes on the heel’s of EnerG2’s ISO 9001:2008 Certification, granted to the company last month. With this certification, EnerG2 has further demonstrated the reliability of its manufacturing operations and the quality of its environmental management system.
The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) explains the 14001:2004 certification as: requirements for an environmental management system to enable an organization to develop and implement a policy and objectives which take into account legal requirements and other requirements to which the organization subscribes, and information about significant environmental aspects.
“This ISO certification indicates that EnerG2 has designed and implemented in Albany a mature set of manufacturing processes that conform to a standard of environmental stewardship recognized around the world as a responsible, precise and well-controlled system of manufacturing,” said Chris Wheaton, COO and co-Founder, EnerG2.
A year after coming online, the Albany facility remains the only manufacturing plant in the world dedicated to the commercial-scale production of engineered carbon materials destined for use in high-performance energy storage applications. EnerG2’s 74,000 square foot Albany operation leverages the company’s proprietary Carbon Technology Platform (CTP) to produce high-purity carbon materials. The CTP allows EnerG2 to manufacture best-in-class materials for batteries (Li-Ion anodes, Lead-acid additives, and other advanced chemistry electrodes) and ultracapacitors.
The EnerG2 manufacturing process controls the molecular structure and synthesis of these advanced materials at the earliest production stages and provides flexibility and reduced costs, while maximizing performance. Delivering these tailored carbons to energy storage device manufacturers allows the manufacturers to increase device utilization and performance; as a result, they can offer end consumers a fundamentally better cost for performance tradeoff.
Adds Wheaton: “Our customers, employees and members of the local community can be certain that EnerG2 takes seriously its role as an environmentally responsible manufacturer. Our products are designed not only to enhance energy storage and energy efficiency, but also to ultimately reduce the impact of human industry on the environment.”
