ECS encourages its institutional members to renew their memberships before the end of 2020 to ensure that their benefits and community support continue uninterrupted.
Members build their own benefit package
When you renew, you can adjust your package to meet your 2021 goals and objectives. The benefits menu includes:

At their next meeting, the ECS Board of Directors will vote on a proposal to change the name of the ECS Sponsorship Committee to the ECS Institutional Engagement Committee. The name change was proposed at a meeting during PRiME 2020.
“We felt that the word ‘sponsorship’ did not clearly define the purpose of our committee. Our goal is to engage the broader electrochemical community. By defining our committee as the ECS Institutional Engagement Committee, we will reach both the academic and industrial members of our society,” said Committee Chair Marion Jones, of Scribner Associates, Inc.
ECS congratulates Faraday Technology, an ECS Patron Level Institutional Member.

CNs have a unique combination of characteristics including high mechanical properties, sustainability, and large-scale production potential. Their material applications include as additives, self-sustaining structures, and template structures. By making CNs more economical to transport, the new FARADAYIC® ElectroDewatering process and associated FARADYIC® ElectroExtrusion apparatus make them more accessible for a broad spectrum of industrial applications.
