Vancouver, BC: Dan Blondal, CEO of Nano One Materials Corp., today provided an update on the progress of its lithium battery materials pilot plant.
“Nano One’s pilot plant is key to our business plan and strategic objectives,” said Mr. Blondal “and we are pleased to report that construction is proceeding on schedule and under budget. It will enable us to make larger volumes of cathode material in 2017 and to showcase Nano One’s patented technology to market stakeholders who are eager to see it operating at the pilot scale.”
All critical components of the pilot are on order and expected to arrive by the year’s end with some key items already being fitted for installation. Final pilot assembly will take place in Nano One’s new facility, which is also being remodelled to house a new laboratory. The facility adds much needed space and enables expansion of the team to include another PhD battery scientist, an engineering project manager and business development resources, starting in October.
Nano One’s patented technology will be demonstrated in these pilot sized reactor vessels
As a result of its recent efforts on pilot process optimization, Nano One has identified opportunities to expand and protect its intellectual property portfolio. Nano One filed another patent application in September and has more in the queue.
Nano One’s Principal Scientist, Dr. Stephen Campbell, adds that “We are continually enhancing our processes and developing new chemistries, and we are pleased to be adding more patents pending and knowhow to our technological offering. We will demonstrate these advanced manufacturing technologies in our pilot and we will make a range of cathode materials that are suitable for electric vehicle and grid storage batteries.”
