Our unique patented silicon-graphene anode material makes it possible to use significantly less anode material for the corresponding storage capacity, compared to traditional batteries. With this exceptional technology, Granode Materials enables smaller and lighter batteries. Another amazing benefit of our anode materials is longevity: it makes batteries last longer and charge faster – qualities that are essential for the next generation of electric vehicles and consumer electronics.
Granode Materials is developing and commercializing an anode material for lithium- ion batteries. By changing the charge carrier to a mix of graphene, nano silicon and binders, our anode material can increase storage capacity dramatically. This is especially true when compared to graphite, the most commonly used material in lithium-ion battery anodes. Our innovative anode material also adds to the mechanical strength and electrical conductivity of the battery. This circumvents the well-known expansion problems and lowering the conductivity of silicon.
Today’s batteries are facing four main challenges today:
Current charge-to-weight ratio is too low to support good driving economy in electric vehicles.
Current anodes struggle with long charging times, while the market demand is moving towards instant charging.
Current anodes can only handle a lower number of charging cycles, causing a high lifetime cost.
Current anodes are not easily recyclable or they contain rare earth metals that cause secondary environmental challenges.
Our extraordinary silicon-graphene anode material is designed for next generation batteries and will solve current anode problems:
Granode Materials’ anodes have up to 10 times higher charge-to-weight capacity than current battery anodes!
Granode Materials’ anodes can last up to 10 times longer than current battery anodes!
Granode Materials’ anodes can charge 5-10 times faster than current battery anodes!
Granode Materials’ anodes are easier to recycle than current battery anodes!
Granode Materials’ groundbreaking method is cost-efficient and compatible with commercial fabrication methods. Our manufacturing, which stems from the paper manufacturing industry, is both energy-efficient and inexpensive.
Granode Materials has a local provider of graphene in 2D fab, the company from which Granode Materials spun out of. 2D fab provides sustainable and cost-efficient graphene products and has years of experience and research behind their manufacturing process. Granode Materials also has several ways to manufacture the silicon nano particles needed. The result: reduced costs.
