About AIC

AIC is a privately held, self funded and self-directed developer of technologies for water, energy and metals.  


We formed in 2002 through the merger of a Technology Micro-fund and an established electro-chemical engineering company, both located in the San Francisco Bay Area.


Over the following years, we developed a diversified portfolio of technology, IP, know-how, skills and strategic relationships focused on applications of advanced materials and electro-chemistry in water, materials and energy.


We fund our own research and develop our core technologies to the point of pre-production prototype and/or large field scale pilot equipment.


When our process are proven, we develop partnerships, licensing agreements and/or spin-offs through which our technologies are commercialized.
