Nano One: Disrupting Lithium-Ion Technology for the Clean Energy Revolution
Nano One Materials Corp. (NNO.V) is pioneering cutting edge technology to significantly increase the efficiency of lithium-ion cathodes; NNO has 2 U.S. patents and 10 more patents pending. The patented technology enables rapid formation of high performance nano-scale structures early in a three-stage production cycle. Innovative control of particle size eliminates the need for repetitive grinding, milling, filtering and prolonged thermal treatment that are common to other dominant industrial processes.
Nano One’s core technology is a process for producing affordable nanomaterials that can be used in a variety of industries including agriculture, electronics, health care, and vehicle batteries. Crystal structures are formed from inexpensive raw materials reacting at mild temperatures under atmospheric pressures in fast acting, versatile conditions. Through clever manipulations, the process avoids complexing agents, surfactants, templates, emulsifiers and other chemicals.
Simply stated, Nano One’s process involves fewer steps and lower cost feedstock:
NNO intends to follow a licensing strategy by first developing a pilot factory as a market demonstration, thereby de-risking the scale up procedure for companies who utilize NNO’s patented technology.
The following graphic illustrates the advantage of Nano One’s patented process for producing longer lasting cathode powder:
The best way to describe Nano One’s patented technology is that it is like a chef in the kitchen utilizing many different available ingredients to formulate nanostructured composite battery materials which generate better results than what’s currently available. Companies that utilize NNO’s patented process could 20-40% improvements in cost and performance of energy storing materials that go into lithium-ion batteries.
Electric batteries are all about the four C’s: Cost, Cycling (how many cycles can you get from a battery), Charging, Capacity. Nano One’s cutting edge process creates tremendous improvements in efficiency in all four C’s making adoption of its technology a compelling value proposition.
Nano One will require an additional $6-$10 million in order to get to revenue generation (pilot plant and validation of process) which the company is committed to achieving through non-dilutive means. Once small scale production has been achieved as proof of concept NNO can move into the blue-sky phase of licensing to clients which will likely include an upfront fee and a 5-7% licensing fee. Considering that the market for cathode materials is currently $3 billion and growing, the revenue opportunity for NNO is in excess of $150 million.
We look forward to continuing to follow the Nano One story and see the company move forward to the validation and licensing phases over the next 1-2 years.
