Paul Gifford Experienced in Developing & Manufacturing Advanced Technologies
ST. LOUIS (August 27, 2007) - Akermin Inc., an advanced biocatalyst company, continues progress toward commercializing its biocatalyst products and today announces the appointment of Dr. Paul Gifford as vice president of engineering. Dr. Gifford has spent 16 years working with advanced nickel metal hydride (NiMH) batteries, personally contributing to the development of high-power battery designs used in hybrid vehicles.
Akermin has combined polymer science and biochemical engineering to create a new structure for enzyme-based catalysts. The breakthrough technology extends the effectiveness and performance range of enzyme catalysts in fuel cells and a broad range of other process reactions. In addition to lower costs, biocatalysts deliver environmental benefits by replacing metal catalysts with renewable enzymes.
"It's exciting to join Akermin at a time when the key scientific milestones have been met, and we are prepared to make progress in application engineering by customizing our stabilized enzyme technology for commercial partners," Dr. Gifford said.
Gifford joins Akermin from Cobasys LLC, formerly Texaco Ovonic Battery Systems, where he served as director of advanced product development. In 1991, he joined Ovonic Battery Company, the firm founded by Stanford Ovshinsky that invented and patented many of the technologies used in NiMH batteries. Dr. Gifford's management achievements include developing a lower-cost, higher-performance, longer-life battery for electric vehicles, leading engineering for manufacturing startup and scale-up, and developing the business case that led to formation of a battery joint venture with General Motors, GM Ovonic LLC.
Before Ovonic, his experience included product management and technical roles with advanced batteries at Duracell, Gates Energy Products and Allied-Signal. Dr. Gifford received a chemistry degree from Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University and a Ph.D. in analytical chemistry and electrochemistry from the State University of New York at Buffalo. He holds four U.S. patents and has published more than 50 technical papers.
Dr. Gifford and his wife, Dawn, plan to move to St. Louis from Bloomfield Hills, Mich. His initial focus at Akermin will be on fuel cell development, scaling up prototype technology and design for manufacturing, Hruska said.
