Sulfurcell Lands Equity Funding From Intel For Thin-Film Tech Expansion

Sulfurcell, a manufacturer of sulfur-based and selenium-based thin-film solar modules, has secured 18.8 million euros in equity funding for the expansion and market introduction of its second-generation thin-film PV technology.

The financing round was led by Intel Capital, the global investment arm of Intel Corp. Intel was joined by a group of leading European and U.S.-based cleantech investors who gave an 85 million euro equity funding to Sulfurcell in July 2008.

Sulfurcell was founded in 2001 as a spin-off of the Helmholtz Centre for Materials and Energy, previously known as the Hahn-Meitner Institute.
