Vancouver, Canada (TSX: NANO) (OTC: NNOMF) (Frankfurt: LBMB)

 

Nano One® Materials Corp. (“Nano One”) is a clean technology company with a patented low carbon intensity process (the “One-Pot Process”) for the production of low cost, high-performance cathode materials used in lithium-ion batteries and is pleased to provide a brief corporate update.

 

We are in a growth phase,” said Nano One Executive Chair, Mr. Paul Matysek, and putting capital to work driving change and commercialization paths, with a world class team, ground breaking patented technology, and global collaborators. As battery ecosystems emerge in North America and Europe, we are addressing a number of opportunities to leapfrog existing markets with cost-effective, resilient, and environmentally differentiated solutions for a net-zero future.”

 

Well Capitalized

Nano One is well capitalized with over C$50 million in treasury, government support and a multi-year runway to execute on growth, technology and commercialization.

Deep Pipeline

Nano One has a growing list of active collaborators, including 10 auto OEMs, battery suppliers, cathode makers and miners, and approximately 20 other evaluation programs.

Growth Mode

Nano One growth has tripled facilities and doubled staff to 60+ adding deep cathode experience in senior roles to support technical, commercialization and supply chain development in North America, Europe and emerging battery markets. 

Thought Leadership

Nano One continues to lead where the industry must go, with carbon, water and environmental foot print reduction, sulfate-free NMC, practical LFP for the world, cobaltfree manganese-rich LNMO, single crystal durability enhancements and a culture of continuous innovation.

One-Pot Platform Technology

Nano One is enabling nickel-rich (NMC), iron-rich (LFP) and manganese-rich (LNMO) cathodes made from lower cost and lower environmental footprint battery metals (M2CAM). Technology for the TWh world.

Market Opportunity

BNEF1 2021 outlook projects 4,800 GWh globally by 2035 (27% NMCA, 22% LFP, 19% LMR-NMC, 16% LNMO, 14% other) at scales that require transformative technologies like Nano One’s to eliminate unsustainable by-products and waste.
