AeroShield Teams up with the University of Michigan

AeroShield is partnering with the University of Michigan and ForgeNano to develop a manufacturing strategy for a novel aerogel material. We plan to show that

the aerogel can enhance the efficiency of solar-thermal energy collection at 700º to enable parabolic trough collectors to couple with high-temperature and high-efficiency power cycles. While final award amounts are subject to change, this will provide AeroShield ~$600k towards aerogel R&D.
