Frontier Carbon Corporation

Booth: 1105

Frontier Carbon Corporation (FCC), headquartered in Tokyo Japan, is a joint venture between Mitsubishi Chemical Corporation, Mitsubishi Corporation, and Nanotech Partners. FCC is the first company in the world to mass produce fullerene at a commercial scale and has increased its fullerene production capacity to 40ton/yr in April 2003. FCC now sells fullerene at a price 1/10th of that of the existing market and has further plans to decrease its price. FCC has named its fullerene products to be 'nanom', an acronym of NAno + eNOrmous + Molecule and now exports 'nanom' products to North America, Europe, and Asia.

Due to the decrease in price and unique characteristics of fullerene, high performance sporting goods that uses fullerene has already entered the market. Furthermore many industrial applications are now being commercialized. Industrial applications include batteries, lubricants, grinding and polishing material, cosmetics, pharmaceutical material, polymer additives, rubber additives, electronic material, etc.
