OUR TECHNOLOGY: NanoGraf Technologies has demonstrated a novel high energy density Si-based anode material that has the long-term potential to replace graphite based anodes in lithium-ion batteries for a range of applications, from consumer electronics to electric vehicles. We patented a low cost manufacturing process already proven at the multi-ton scale. NanoGraf’s proprietary manufacturing process is differentiated from competitors relying on expensive and complex vapor deposition-based systems. Instead, we utilize a wet chemistry process that is highly scalable and already proven in a multi ton-scale pilot manufacturing line in Japan. Our anode materials drop in to existing electrode mixing and coating equipment, and they have been validated in large scale battery manufacturing facilities worldwide. Our silicon-graphene anode materials enable longer lasting, faster charging batteries. NanoGraf technology was developed, optimized, and patented by our team working in collaboration with researchers at Northwestern University and Argonne National Laboratory. SiNode’s technology utilizes a proprietary silicon alloy-graphene material architecture to achieve category-leading performance and solutions to long-standing Si anode technical hurdles. The proprietary combination of silicon-based alloys and a flexible 3D graphene network helps stabilize the active material during charge and discharge. Whereas current graphite-based anodes offer a capacity of 372 mAh/g, NanoGraf material can be customized to achieve capacities between 1000 mAh/g and over 2500 mAh/g, delivering higher cell level energy density and best-in-class rate capabilities for high discharge applications. Current battery technology cannot meet the energy and power demands of today’s on-the-go consumer. Over the past two decades lithium-ion batteries have become the primary technology powering the rapid growth of portable electronics and more recently electric vehicles. However, current battery chemistries have hit a plateau in performance improvements and are unable to meet consumer demand for ever increasing range, power, and cycling stability. We work with some of the leading brands worldwide Our partners and customers span the world and are leaders in their respective industries. We are currently the only advanced materials company to receive an anode materials development contract from the United States Advanced Battery Consortium.
