Description:

One of the largest barriers to full-scale electric vehicle adoption is cost – and batteries are largely responsible for that. Nano One Materials Corp. is developing a battery materials production process that improves the energy storing performance and cost of materials used in lithium ion batteries. The technology produces longer lasting materials, simplifies manufacturing, uses lower cost feedstock, brings production costs down by as much as 50 percent and uses less energy in the process. Nano One has been granted key patents covering methods and applications of its technology and has others in the queue. This project includes the construction of a pilot plant, then operating that plant to refine the process to the point that Nano One will be able to demonstrate and license its technology for commercial-scale facilities.
