Both of these methods require powders of LFP to be carbon coated in a series of post-production steps. The process can be configured for a range of different nanostructured materials and has the flexibility to shift with emerging and future battery market trends and a diverse range of other growth opportunities. Blondal, "making it 10 mAh/g better than typical LFP. The novel three-stage process uses equipment common to industry and Nano One has built a pilot plant to demonstrate high volume production and to optimize its technology across a range of materials. Blondal added,"We are confident that our progress with LFP makes a compelling business case and we will be pursuing opportunities with LFP stakeholders, adding to the opportunities being pursued with Nano One's other cathode materials and processes. Nano One will continue optimizing its LFP process for further cost reduction, improved process throughput and enhanced battery performance." Mr. These advances have been included as part of Nano One's recently filed LFP patent application. We also add carbon directly in our process which coats the LFP particles automatically in the firing stage, promoting ideal particle formation while eliminating post-production coating costs. The pilot plant is being funded with the assistance and support of the Government of Canada through Sustainable Development Technology Canada (SDTC) and the Automotive Supplier Innovation Program (ASIP) a program of Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada ISED). Dr. . The solid-state method, by comparison, is lower cost with lower quality LFP, produced by grinding, milling and firing in controlled atmospheres.

Nano One also receives financial support from the National Research Council of Canada Industrial Research Assistance Program (NRC-IRAP). "Recent process innovations in the laboratory have improved the discharge capacity of Nano One's LFP to over 160 mAh/g," said Mr. Dr." A preliminary engineering model, based on annual production of 1000 metric tonnes, indicates that Nano One's LFP process is competitive in both cost and performance metrics. LFP is the cobalt-free, high durability, low cost, and safest cathode material of choice for lithium ion batteries used in e-buses, e-bikes, power tools and grid energy storage systems. Majid Talebi, a senior scientist at Nano One, has developed a simple process that produces high performance carbon coated LFP from an aqueous solution operating at atmospheric temperature and pressure. We have also made process innovations at the pilot scale and we believe this will provide an economic advantage in terms of scaled up production.VANCOUVER, British Columbia, July 18, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Dan Blondal, CEO Ebicycles Manufacturers in China of Nano One Materials (TSX-V:NNO) (OTC:NNOMF) (Frankfurt:LBMB), is pleased to provide an update on Nano One's innovative process for the production of Lithium Iron Phosphate (LFP) initially announced in a press release on July 24, 2017. Talebi said, "The process uses low cost raw materials, involves fewer steps and does not produce a waste stream. The processing technology addresses fundamental supply chain constraints by enabling wider raw materials specifications for use in lithium ion batteries. About Nano One: Nano One Materials Corp ("Nano One" or "the Company") is developing patented technology for the low-cost production of high performance battery materials used in electric vehicles, energy storage and consumer electronics." Nano One Materials Corp. The hydrothermal method produces high quality LFP but is costly due to high pressure high temperature aqueous reactions and a waste lithium salt stream that must be recovered.ca. Currently, LFP is produced commercially through either hydrothermal or solid-state methods. Nano One's mission is to establish its patented technology as a leading platform for the global production of a new generation of nanostructured composite materials.
