AEB's compact electron beam emitters replace thermal and chemical processes for cleaner, more efficient, lower-cost manufacturing. For industries such as pharmaceutical, medical devices, food and beverage, printing, and plastics manufacturing, AEB emitters sterilize products and packaging, improve the performance of plastics and other materials, cure inks and coatings and eliminate pollution.

While electron beams have been used in some industrial niche applications to replace chemical and thermal processes, adoption has been limited due to high equipment and operating costs, complex implementation, and huge size of conventional electron beam technologies. By contrast, the AEB Emitter delivers energy efficiently in a format that is significantly less expensive and more compact in size. Conceived and developed by company founder Tovi Avnery, the AEB Emitter changes the dynamics of electron beam applications, enabling customers to use this clean energy source across a wide range of industrial applications where usage has never before been technically or economically feasible.

AEB is a Rockport Capital portfolio company and a General Catalyst portfolio company.
