Boris starts his work on the technological development of superhard materials, specifically a technique for diamond color enhancement.
Boris and his team specialize in development of HPHT technology development for large single crystal diamond growth.
Boris, led by his research team, reaches the first breakthrough – figuring out the final element for the right conditions for diamond growth. The following years bring more breaking points to the research team allowing the technology to grow bigger and better diamonds.
After hearing about a guy in Russia working on technology for laboratory grown diamonds, Gints notices a science seminar in Riga with Boris as one of the guest lecturers. Gints attends the seminar with the aim to meet Boris. He, obviously, succeeds.
First test laboratory is in development with new addition to the team Andrey Kostyaev as the head of the laboratory.
In less than 2 years Gints gathers the funding and flies to Budapest to purchase the first two machines that need to be transfigurated for the new purpose.
Gints travels to Washington DC to meet with Boris to sync the status, in the meanwhile 8 machines have been assembled and located at the laboratory.
The laboratory goes official and the testing of manufacturing a laboratory grown diamond begins on 10 machines. The results are positive.
The laboratory and the machines relocate to Rostock, Germany. The new factory adds a lot of room for the laboratory expansion. A partnership with Helmut Rohde is formed.
The factory successfuly works and is expanding by assembling 40 more machines to reach a goal of a 50 unit factory where the testing can be taken to new heights.
EcoDiamond receives support from the Mecklenburg-Vorpommern government in August 2019.
EcoDiamond opens a new branch – a service center in Riga. In addition, 12 new machines in the cooperation with G&E Verwaltungs UG are added to the machine park.
“Our diamonds are the same as natural diamonds, we just grow them faster”
Gints Zarans, CEO
“Yes, they are the same, but often better, expanding horizons of using this ultimate material in high-tech applications”
We can grow them more pure, structurally more perfect to use EcoDiamond® in electronics, optics, quantum and other applications. It is impossible to do with natural diamonds.
Boris Feigelson, research scientist & partner at EcoDiamond GmbH
“Literally and naturally, we are not harming but building a future here”
Helmut Fritz Wilhelm Rohde , owner of EcoDiamond GmbH
