Nano One successfully completes phase one of its co-development agreement with niobium producer CBMM
Nano One’s patented One-Pot process adds a cost effective niobium coating on each individual nanocrystal to protect the cathode from deleterious side reactions than can otherwise cause rapid performance degradation. The One-Pot process enables this coating to be formed without adding process steps or costs, and the coating can significantly increase the durability of cathode materials in lithium-ion batteries. The niobium coated single crystal cathode materials are applicable to both conventional liquid electrolyte cells and advanced solid state electrolyte cells.
Nano One CEO, Mr. Dan Blondal said "CBMM is theworld leaderin Niobium, and by completing this milestone with them, we have advanced a step closer to our commercialization and supply chain development goals. Successful upstream collaborations, such as this, help us bring strategic value to downstream partnersa s we progress towards the adoption and commercial application of our technologies.”
CBMM’s Executive Manager for Battery Products, Rogério Marques Ribas, said that “The results of this first milestone demonstrate the viability of making niobium enhanced high-energy battery materials using Nano One's ground-breaking process. We look forward to further advancing our collaborative project and its valuable outcomes.”
