Vancouver, B.C. March 22, 2017: Dan Blondal, CEO of Nano One Materials Corp., today announced that all critical components for Nano One’s pilot plant are now in place and in final stages of assembly at its demonstration facility with commissioning of the pilot plant to follow in April.
“I am pleased to report that our pilot program remains on budget, on target and free of any technical obstacles,” said Mr. Blondal. “As anticipated, we are seeing elevated interest from market stakeholders in the lithium ion battery supply chain. They are eager to see our technology showcased and simulating full scale production with larger test volumes of cathode materials. There is also a spike of interest from the fast-growing lithium supply chain who value Nano One’s ability to widen specifications for battery grade lithium.”
The final stages of interconnection, plumbing and wiring are underway on the pilot plant reactors, dryer, furnace and the balance of plant equipment needed for water, utilities and recirculation. Commissioning will occur in April with preliminary output and optimization of cathode materials to follow.
Dr. Stephen Campbell, Nano One’s Principal Scientist added “In parallel with pilot plant construction efforts, our team has been busy determining pilot operating parameters while adding intellectual property and value through continued innovation in our chemistries and processes. We are also bringing on talented engineers and scientists in anticipation of exciting development efforts planned in 2017 and beyond”.
