COMPANY OVERVIEW

Solid Cell logo from 2006 to 2016

Solid Cell's original mission was to develop and commercialize small scale solid oxide fuel cells (SOFC). As the company grew the strategy evolved toward development of key components including the interconnect fuel processor and combustor for the SOFC. In 2013 the fuel processing product line was spun-off into a separate entity called NOVOROCS Technologies in order to develop opportunities and applications outside the fuel cell industry. In parallel, Solid Cell has been expanding its core product and service offerings to include laser pyrolysis, surface stabilized combustion and thermoelectric technologies. Over the years the Company has won several million dollars in awards and contracts with the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), National Science Foundation (NSF), National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and the New York State Energy Research &  Development Authority (NYSERDA). 

Solid Cell was founded in 2006 by a team of technology enthusiasts led by serial entrepreneur Arkady Malakhov. For the first several years the company operated out of Mr. Malakhov's Manhattan apartment and contracted R&D to research institutions. In 2010, after securing a $250,000 grant from the New York State Energy Research &  Development Authority (NYSERDA), the Company moved to its current location at the Rochester Technology Park in Rochester, New York.
