Welcome to American Energy Technologies Company!
American Energy Technologies Co. (AETC) is a closely-held, woman-owned small business concern. Our company conducts operations out of two locations in the greater Chicago-area, Illinois. The business office is in Glenview, and our Technology & Manufacturing Center are located in Arlington Heights, Illinois.
AETC is a rapidly growing and a completely sustainable operation serving several highly technological niche markets, focusing on functional coatings, novel materials, and portable energy systems. The growth of AETC may be credited to our diversified business portfolio, technical acumen, and clear business goals of where we want to be as a corporation in the years to come and how to get there.
The company was founded and is managed by experienced battery and materials science experts with decades-long tangible experience with the US industry. MBA-level training at leading US business schools further fuels our corporate growth. AETC believes that it is not just our technologies, but also our people – our most valuable intangible asset – that can demonstrate that your investment in project with us will make a difference.
As introduced in this website, our business portfolio can be split into two groups:
1. Contractual Research and Development and Connect and Development for the industry and federal government.
As of the time of this writing, the company is involved in R&D contracting for several large clients from the industry. They include one of the largest Lithium-Ion battery manufacturers in the United States, a leading Lead Acid Manufacturing Company in the US, one of the largest producers of portable fuel cell systems from overseas, and a leading US nano-size metal oxide manufacturer, and many more.
2. Commercial products.
In 2010, AETC launched a market introduction of its own newly developed and manufactured product, a conductive graphite dispersion for batteries. This product is used in batteries for purposes of conductivity enhancement and protection from corrosion, thereby helping batteries last longer. A modified version of the above formula also features great thermally conductive properties. The third group of coatings by AETC provides protection from laceration, abrasion, puncture, and noise. These can be applied on firm and flexible substrates.
AETC is on the market with five specialty graphite products whose intended application is anode active materials for lithium-ion batteries, components of the composite brake pads, and machinery found in oil fields.
American Energy Technologies Company offers a new and innovative technology: vehicle-grade hybrid armor to potential end-users in the United States government. The primary intent of our armor panels is to defeat the M2 0.3 cal AP rounds and 20 mm FSP (a test simulating an IED blast near a vehicle). When placed on the exterior body of a vehicle, AETC panels will feature a next-to-none “non-performance” margin. In qualifying armor panels, AETC is set up to run our own ballistic tests per NIJ standards. Tests conducted to date with M2/M1 0.3 cal AP indicate significant enhancement of V50 ballistic performance with armor panels prepared by AETC in comparison to industry standard controls. Additionally, the cost of production suggests that AETC panels would be available at a fraction of the cost of present-day ceramic ballistic armor.
Lightweight, all-weather solutions introduced for vehicle-grade armor are applicable to a range of anti-tamper devices, from large-scale structures to the protection of specialty microelectronics.
AETC’s commercial operations also include supplying the battery R&D community with laboratory cell parts and closing tooling to manufacture batteries. In doing so, we provide the US battery R&D market with a viable alternative to Japanese-made cell parts, which, up until recently, enjoyed an unchallenged monopoly on the laboratory equipment market in the United States.
