Lithium-ion batteries (LIBs) and sodium-ion batteries (SIBs) play an important role in the landscape of sustainable energy as an energy storage medium to complement intermittent renewable energy sources (solar/wind), and for portable applications such as electric vehicles. However, for grid-scale demands, advanced lithium ion batteries with higher energy densities and lower cost are required. Nanode Battery Technologies ltd. (Nanode) spins-off from the University of Alberta in 2020.
Nanode specializes in designing and producing high performance electrodes for lithium and sodium ion batteries. Nanode produces metal alloy anode which has higher energy storage capacity, simpler one-step preparation method, and shorter manufacturing time than traditional graphite anodes. Our technology eliminates the wet process for graphite anode, making the battery anode manufacture more scalable and faster. Nanode makes batteries better.
