Nano One’s Dan Blondal on the Umicore joint development agreement and scaling up the battery materials space

Tracy Weslosky chats with Nano One Materials Corp.‘s (TSX: NANO) Founder, CEO, and Director, Dan Blondal, to discuss their recent Joint Development Agreement with Umicore. Nano One and Umicore have entered into a joint development agreement to improve the throughput and cost of cathode manufacturing with the goal of making Umicore’s cathode materials using Nano One’s patented M2CAM® One-Pot process. Umicore is a massive company in the battery materials space, with €2.1 billion (turnover of €13.8 billion) in revenue in the first half of 2022, making this announcement exciting for the Nano One team.

Dan goes on to say, “We can’t get to terawatt hours of batteries and electric cars in everybody’s driveways unless we solve some of the big problems associated with the scale up of this industry.” The agreement leverages both parties’ technologies for cathode materials to drive down cost, complexity, and environmental footprint. Nano One shareholders can anticipate seeing impacts on the bottom line in years, as the project is measured in multiple phases with go/no-go milestones.
