Who we are at Sialon Ceramics Ultracapacitor

Disruptive solar panel energy collection technology.

Headed up by Mario Plasencia and Nico van Dongen, the duo have spent the last fifteen years working on new and advanced forms of ultrasonic aided metal processing that can be used to develop a revolutionary new electric vehicle & solar panel collection battery, completely unlike anything else that currently exists.

Mario Plasencia

​Mario is an expert in Power Ultrasonics and owner of Aktive Arc Ultrasonics Sarl in Switzerland with over 17 years of product development in this area. He is experienced in bringing new products and technologies to market and has global channel development experience. For over 30 years his interests in technology innovation has put him at the forefront of emerging technologies. His know-how in ultrasonics includes wide ranging applications across many industries including high temperature molten metal & glass treatment, and Nanotechnology. In 2004 Mario designed one of the first commercially used ultrasonic impact treatment tools in Europe and now brings new innovations in this field to our company.

Nico van Dongen

Nico is an expert in high temperature technical ceramics and owner of  Sialon Ceramics Ltd. Having graduated with a MBA in strategic marketing in 1986, Nico has pursued a diverse career in the molten aluminium industry. Nico has held a number of key roles in the sector, specifically in the key areas of grain refinement, degassing and solidification in molten metals. Along the way, he used this experience and knowledge to co-develop with Mario a proprietary mixing technique to create a previously insoluble alloy – a crucial step in the creation of our ultra capacitor. Nico has led several successful ultrasonic degassing & grain refinement projects in the molten aluminium industry.

 

This unique combination of technical expertise of the single layer ultracapacitor and experience within the metal and electrical engineering sectors, particularly in relation to R&D and project management has led to this ground breaking innovation – a new and advanced type of ultra capacitor – one that’s now ready to be put to use in a practical application. While we have identified many practical uses for the technology, initially, we aim to use the device to develop an advanced storage battery to power electric vehicles and trucks such as Renault, Scania and Volvo.
