Breakthrough technologies.

For the previous three decades, lithium-ion batteries occupied a central place in converting the sphere of consumer goods, in almost all segments, ranging from a toothbrush, and ending with electric vehicles. But the more products electrified with lithium batteries are included in our life, the more energy consumers and durability are presented to these batteries. This is due, among other things, with environmental standards, with financial efficiency, and of course with the fact that the needs in batteries are growing, but the explored lithium reserves are limited.

So you need to create and develop technologies that would allow to improve the consumer properties of batteries, and at the same time to reduce the share of potentially scarce raw materials in their composition. To implement these conditions of the company create new technologies, and today it has become very popular to use with these decisions # graphene. More recently, we told you about the revolutionary graphene aluminum-lithium # battery from the Australian company GMG. Today’s news came from Chicago.

The Electromobile Revolution, started by Tesla and Ilona Mask, forced the old automakers and even the military to invest in promising developments that can radically improve the indicators familiar to all lithium batteries. As rational and far-sighted participants in this process, investors do not fold all the eggs in one basket, and not only well-known companies with enormous experience are attracted to these developments, but also startups, which sometimes give out technology on the mountain that did not solve others. In the number of such young companies included

The Chicago Company has received considerable finances from interested parties for three years. Last year, the US Department of Defense provided Nanograf Grant in the amount of $ 1.65 million to develop lithium-ion batteries with a long service life for the US military equipment. We have previously told you that the United States Military Office leads a serious study in the field of electrification of its military transport, from light SUVs, and to electroavitations. In 2019, the Council # USA on car research, which includes #ford, #General Motors and FCA (now Stellantis) provided the company $ 7.5 million on research and development of batteries for electric vehicles.

Ask why the next rechargeable company is such confidence? The whole thing in the personality of the company’s head, and its founders. Its chief executive officer Nanograf Technologies is Dr. Francis Van. He received the doctoral degree in 1998 at the Chemistry Faculty of the State University of New York. Then he held various positions in some of the largest companies for the production of batteries, consumer goods and energy, including Duracell, Procuh & Gamble, Gillette, Boston Scientific and Shenhua Group. During this time, he registered dozens of patents. Nanograf itself is a subsidiary of the North-West University and the Argonne National Laboratory.

It is definitely that today the «legislator mod» in the battery area is #tesla with its partners in the development and production of batteries. Rechargeable blocks of their first luxury electric vehicles #Model S and #Model X Tesla was confined precisely elements of the form factor 18650.

Nanograf has developed a silicon anode technology that will allow lithium-ion batteries, the traditional Form Factor 18650, used in electric vehicles, to work much longer and charge faster than the lithium-ion batteries of the previous generation. The basis of this innovation is patented silicon graphene anode technology.

According to the statements of the Nanograf developers, they were able to create a lithium-ion element # 18650 with the highest energy density in the world, and its

The new Nanograf cell technology may well in a short time after the start of its serial use to give impetus to the development of electrical transport in all its segments. New technologies in the field of lithium batteries, as well as the transition to decarboonized energy (and batteries are the most important part of this process) will allow the United States to create up to 600,000 jobs for American citizens by 2030. While the former President of Trump only loudly stated the greatness of America, in reality, her greatness creates exactly such as Nanograf innovative companies, finding new solutions for already existing and familiar things.
