Dan Blondal on Nano One’s breakthrough in lithium-ion cathode materials and the ‘million mile battery’

,

“The idea of a single crystal cathode has been around for a while but the conventional methods for making them are very expensive. You want to spend as little time in the furnace as possible and we have developed a way to do that. Our crystals form very readily in the furnace and they self coat in the furnace so you don’t have to have a secondary coating process. We have simplified the process. It is less complex and because the crystals form quickly we get an inexpensive way of making them that doesn’t have the downside of spending too long in the furnace.” States Dan Blondal, CEO, Director & Founder of Nano One Materials Corp. (TSXV: NNO), in an interview with InvestorIntel’s Tracy Weslosky.

Dan went on to say that even with single crystal there is degradation but if you coat that single crystal the cathode material lasts four times longer. Dan further added, “by making the material more durable you can get many more charges out of it. The electric battery that goes into a car is somewhat restricted by the durability of the materials. If the material is not very durable then you have to make the battery a bit bigger. A more durable battery allows you to either drive a million miles which is important for taxi drivers, buses and utilities, or charge is much faster because as the battery is more durable it can take more aggressive charge or drive a little bit further everyday.”
