JVIC, The eFactory Build Relationship with New SRC Venture, Ceramex

July 9, 2014

SPRINGFIELD, Mo., July 9 -- Missouri State University issued the following news release:

Business experts are known to say that you have to break down silos to gain innovation. But in Springfield, one can look to the silos to find the most high-tech research - the Jordan Valley Innovation Center - a former MFA milling facility with towering grain silos recognizable for miles. Ceramex North America LLC (a new company formed from SRC Holdings Corporation and Hexadex Limited) recently engaged with JVIC to explore research and development of new procedures for their remanufactured vehicle emission systems.

At JVIC, the focus of research projects generally falls under the heading of environmentally-friendly projects with an applied research emphasis on biomaterials, nanotechnology, carbon-based electronics, biomedical instrument development and energy. The research collaboration with Ceramex will seek to develop improved procedures that will support the need for clean environmental initiatives.

"We look forward to the opportunity to assist Ceramex. The capabilities within the Center for Applied Science and Engineering fit well with testing and developing additional technology processes that will assist in remanufacturing emission systems," said Allen Kunkel, associate vice president for economic development and director of JVIC.

Ceramex North America (CNA) will be housed within The eFactory at Missouri State University in part due to the opportunity to work with scientistsacross the street at JVIC. They are the 13th tenant in the business incubator.

CNA came about as an idea to remanufacture diesel particulate filters, diesel oxidation catalysts and catalytic converters for vehicles. Remanufacturing the used emission systems will physically take place in Monett, Missouri.
