Founders of Chemistry Startup Phantin Recognized as UofT Inventors of the Year
Phantin, a dust-repelling, self-cleaning nanomaterial coating that keeps solar panels clean, has been recognized as one of UofT's top inventions of the year. Inventors Cheng Lu and Prof. Cynthia Goh were named UofT Inventors of the Year on May 17, 2016 for their invention, which helps keep solar panels clean, boosts their energy production and requires less maintenance. It has been shown to improve solar electricity generation by four percent, which could transalte to an extra 0.45 billion kWh of electricity by 2020, and field tests are already underway near Toronto.
