This week, I welcome Michael Mo CEO of Kulr, a company using carbon fiber technology to make electronics safer, cooler and lighter.
KULR Technology Corporation owns proprietary carbon fiber based thermal management solutions that are generally more effective at storing, conducting, and dissipating waste heat generated by an electronic system’s internal components.
Their proprietary carbon fiber-based architecture replaces less efficient aluminum and copper based heat spreaders and exchangers, which are energy intensive and less environmentally friendly to produce.
Carbon fibers have small diameters approximately 5 to 10um, yet they are strong and stiff compared to other conductive materials such as metal. Carbon fiber also has good thermal conductivity, even several times higher than copper when it is suitably processed for thermal performance.
On this episode, Michael will be discussing his company's history as well as the different technologies and applications it is being used for. These applications range from protecting batteries in electric cars to helping NASA prevent catastrophic fires in vehicles or space suits.

This week, I welcome Douglas Griffin on the show. Doug is the co-founder and president of Modern Recovery Systems. He's also responsible with designing and manufacturing custom machinery for processing difficult to recycle materials.
Their focus is on the extraction of carbon fibers from finished composites, including laminates, trimmings, tooling, R&D and end-of-life components. These recovered carbon fibers are made available in milled or random chopped form.
On this week's episode, Doug and I will be discussing his company's background as well as their unique approach to recovering carbon fiber. We'll be discussing their services and also the newest facility set to startup in 2019.
