Event - Technology innovator in the San Francisco Bay Area

Learning from Nature to Design New Products

PAX Scientific, a San Francisco Bay Area engineering company, will give a talk of “Uses of Biomimicry to Create Products for a Greener Future”. The talk will cover inspiring applications of biomimicry principles and the new industries that are emerging from these scientific innovations.

PAX Scientific uses nature to guide its designs of energy-efficient and non-polluting breakthrough products. Onno Koelman, Director of Sales, will share ideas for incorporating biomimicry design principles into a wide range of industrial processes. Utilizing principles from biology, physics and chemistry, PAX Scientific is designing revolutionary changes in standard industrial designs and processes. For example, new designs of fans and mixers can save up to 40% of the energy required to turn rotor blades -- and the old fashioned designs can account for up to 40% of a manufacturer' s electrical load.

The company received a $2 Million research grant from the Department Of Energy (DOE) recently.
