Microstaq Inc

Location:WA, US
Speaker:Sandeep Kumar
Title:President & CEO
Primary Industry:Electronics
Executive Summary:Global energy needs are soaring as China and India industrialize aggressively. The soaring energy demand in face of limited supply is placing a great stress on the economic growth of countries, profitability of businesses and the environment. Industries that are the most energy hungry are also ones where technical innovation has fallen behind the curve. Microstaq’s vision is to radically improve energy efficiency through innovative MEMs based flow control solutions for the industrial, medical, residential, commercial, and transportation industries. Flow control systems are central elements in industrial, commercial, residential, medical, aerospace and automotive system and are used in air-conditioning, transmission, braking, process control, hydraulic, pneumatic and many other applications. The controlling element is a mechanical or solenoid valve whose actuation is an in-efficient, energy consuming component of the system. The global market size for flow control valves is estimated to be in excess of $25B. Microstaq has developed revolutionary valve technology that brings significant energy efficiencies and product performance advances. The technology is protected through a portfolio of 23 patents. The SCV has generated customer excitement in biotechnology, gas chromatography, aerospace, consumer refrigeration, A/C, transmission control, oil exploration, medical systems and process gases industries.
