Why Sulfates Are Worse for EV Batteries Than They Are for Hair
September 21, 2022
Nano One Materials Corporation proposes a better, sulfate-free idea. Its One-Pot Metals to Cathode Active Materials (M2CAM) process mixes pure metal, lithium-carbonate, and coating materials in a chemical process to form coated lithiated powders once they are fired in a furnace. This simpler, more direct process requires less energy and capital investment and hence is cost-competitive with the legacy process now and promises to undercut it with further improvement.
