Nanostellar Inc., a Silicon Valley, CA-based company that develops advanced catalysts for emissions control, energy efficiency, and the synthesis of chemicals and fuels, has hired Samuel D. Hires as President of its Heavy-Duty Business, with the goal of expanding its presence in the heavy-duty on- and off-highway industries. Hires previously worked at Cummins and before that Ford, leading heavy-duty diesel businesses and engineering teams. “Now that Nanostellar has commercialized its technology in diesel cars, heavy-duty and off-road diesel engines represent the next large opportunity,” he said. “Nanostellar’s suite of catalytic materials can be easily adapted for use in heavy-duty engines.” These solutions are developed using the company’s Rational Design Methodology, incorporating computational methods and expertise in nanomaterials and synthetic chemistry.
