Nanoco and Marl Announce Partnership to Develop Lighting Products Enhanced With Cadmium-Free Quantum Dots

Nanoco Group plc, a world leader in the development and manufacture of cadmium-free quantum dots and other nanomaterials, and Marl International, a pioneer of the LED lighting industry, today announced that they have entered into a partnership to bring novel LED lighting products to market. The new products will feature Nanoco’s cadmium-free quantum dot technology.

Quantum dots open up new potential for LED lighting – which currently lacks the same warmth and color performance of an incandescent bulb – and have the capacity to appeal to a new set of buyers who want the efficiency and economy of the LED, as well as the “effect” of natural light. To date, the use of quantum dots in lighting was hindered by the fact that the technology contained cadmium, a highly-regulated and toxic heavy metal. Nanoco’s quantum dot technology, made without cadmium or any heavy metal, offers a sustainable solution.

“Innovation is at the core of our partnership. With Nanoco, we’re now able to bring products to market that meet a new set of technical and commercial demands,” said Adrian Rawlinson, Marl’s Managing Director. “Moreover, we’re able to do so in a way that doesn’t compromise our standards for safety.”

“We couldn’t be more excited to collaborate with a company that’s been transforming the LED industry for more than 40 years,” said Michael Edelman, CEO, Nanoco. “We commend Marl for their commitment to innovation and to sustainability. Our cadmium-free quantum dots offer a simple, effective and non-toxic solution to tuning the color and improving the quality of LED lighting. Our partnership is a key step on the path to the next era of LED lighting.”

The Nanoco and Marl technical design teams have focused initially on LED linear strips and ceiling mount flat panels – high-demand lighting solutions in professional environments that require specific correlated color temperature and specific color rendering index (CRI). Both lighting designs are currently available for customer demonstrations.
