Lithium-ion batteries are a vital component for achieving sustainable electrification of the transportation systems. Our focus application areas are Electric vehicles (EVs) where the market is huge and rapidly growing, but also in other areas such as renewable energy storage, consumer electronics, and grid storage.
Our supremely advanced and highly innovative battery anode material will not only dramatically enhance the performance of EVs, but also drastically increase the efficiency and longevity of other electronic devices in these various application areas.
We are proud to offer the most cutting-edge and game-changing technology in the industry, and with our relentless pursuit of innovation, we strive to make a tremendous positive impact and pave the way for a more sustainable future.
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 3 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.
