Accelerated Materials Competes in Wolfson Entrepeneurs Society Pitching Competition, Takes Runner-up

30-May-2021, Cambridge, UK

In the Wolfson College Entrepeneurs Society’s maiden pitching competition at the University of Cambridge, Accelerated Materials pitched its vision for a sustainable future of new materials. CEO Nicholas Jose presented the case for AM’s low-cost ZnO antimicrobial additive for paints, ZArmour. Paints using ZArmour can prevent the proliferation of biofilm-forming microbes like E. coli while maintaining low human and environmental toxicity. This would prevent the spread of infectious germs by surface contact, and could also reduce the degradation of building materials.
