Nano One’s Dan Blondal talks about their unique high-voltage cobalt-free battery and many partnerships

In a recent InvestorIntel interview, Peter Clausi talks to Dan Blondal, CEO, Director & Founder of Nano One Materials Corp. (TSXV: NNO) about their recent news about their unique high-voltage cobalt-free battery. Dan Blondal explains how their breakthrough LNM material, also known as high voltage spinel, is a cobalt-free, low-cost cathode material that provides improved efficiency, thermal management and power.

“Our process is to develop the processes for making these cathode materials,” Dan Blondal says in the interview, “the cathode materials themselves, batteries that use the cathode materials, and then license that technology, or joint venture with partners on manufacturing.” He went on to explain how Nano One’s LNM cathode is a leading candidate for next generation lithium-ion and solid-state batteries because its durability and dimensional stability enable a stable interface.

In this InvestorIntel interview, which may also be viewed on YouTube, Dan went on to say “Our DNA is in process innovation,” he continued, “and we look to partner with people who understand how to control supply chain” as well as “understand manufacturing and have the supply channels.”

Asked about partnerships, Dan said: “We have about 20 groups were are actively working with.” They include the Asian development partner announced this August. “Volkswagen is one of our announced partners, but we are also working with a bunch of their peers.” These partners and opportunities are “a big part of the story, and my job is to convert those into real and meaningful deals.”

Nano One’s Dan Blondal on improving the performance, durability, and safety of lithium-ion batteries

“We use a process that is environmentally friendly, we have no waste stream, we combine all of the coating and crystallization and all of the preparation of nickel, manganese, and cobalt all into one step. So there are fewer steps, there’s less energy consumed, less waste, and results in a longer-lasting battery material that could lead to more durable battery.” States Dan Blondal, CEO, Director & Founder of Nano One Materials Corp. (TSXV: NNO), in an interview with InvestorIntel’s Ron Wortel at PDAC 2020.

Dan went on to say that Nano One has developed intellectual property and patents to make battery materials that can improve the performance, durability, and safety of batteries. Dan also spoke on Tesla’s million-mile battery. He said that Tesla has used cathode material supplied by a Chinese manufacturer in the battery. Dan continued, “Nano One has intellectual property and patents that have nanocrystalline coated material which is very much akin to what they were using except ours is commercially viable.” Dan also provided an update on Nano One’s other battery technologies. He said that the company is working on lithium iron phosphate batteries used in electric buses, grid storage, etc. Nano One is also working on cobalt-free battery material which is aimed at next-generation solid-state batteries.

Dan Blondal on oversubscription and the increasing market support for Nano One’s lithium-ion battery technology initiatives

In an InvestorIntel interview during PDAC 2020, Tracy Weslosky secures an interview update with CEO, Director & Founder Dan Blondal on Nano One Materials Corp. (TSXV: NNO), a technology company with patented technology for the low-cost production of high-performance lithium-ion battery cathode materials used in electric vehicles, energy storage, and consumer electronics.

Dan spoke on Nano One’s patented technology which can improve the durability of battery cathode materials and could enable electric vehicle manufacturers to significantly increase the lifespan and driving range of their batteries. Market interest is coming back into the battery materials sector with the rise in electric vehicle demand. Dan continued, “We have done a fantastic job by bringing Volkswagen and government funding into the company, and other partners. All that happened last year when it was really hard to get…”

Dan also provided an update on Nano One’s recently closed private placement which was oversubscribed by 80%. In addition to the proceeds from the private placement, Nano One has also received $5 million in non-dilutive and non-repayable contributions from Sustainable Development Technology Canada.
