China Nuvo Solar Energy, Inc. announced that it has executed a binding term sheet with Pioneer Materials, Inc. ("PMI") of Torrance, California, to establish a pilot development and manufacturing operation in PMI’s Chengdu, Sichuan, China facility located in Chengdu’s West High Tech development zone.

The agreement with PMI has the objective of establishing initial production of solar cells using China Nuvo’s licensed technology based on an invention titled "Photovoltaic cell with integral light transmitting waveguide in a ceramic sleeve". China Nuvo’s licensed technology is claimed to offer a number of significant advantages in light trapping efficiencies and certain production economies compared to current technologies.

PMI is a manufacturer and supplier of materials for the semiconductor, hard drive media, optical media and photonic industries. PMI is developing for the solar energy industry advanced materials for thin film photovoltaics (solar cell) processing. China Nuvo Solar Energy is a development stage company that has acquired a license for exclusive worldwide rights to what is claimed to be a unique solar cell technology.
