Nano One Materials (C: NNO) to Commission Pilot Plant in April

All critical components for Nano One Materials Corp.'s (C: NNO) pilot plant are now in place and in final stages of assembly at its facility with commissioning of the pilot plant to follow in April.

All critical components for Nano One Materials Corp.’s (C: NNO) pilot plant are now in place and in final stages of assembly at its demonstration facility with commissioning of the pilot plant to follow in April.

“I am pleased to report that our pilot program remains on budget, on target and free of any technical obstacles,” said Mr. Blondal. “As anticipated, we are seeing elevated interest from market stakeholders in the lithium ion battery supply chain. They are eager to see our technology showcased and simulating full scale production with larger test volumes of cathode materials. There is also a spike of interest from the fast-growing lithium supply chain who value Nano One’s ability to widen specifications for battery grade lithium.”

The final stages of interconnection, plumbing and wiring are underway on the pilot plant reactors, dryer, furnace and the balance of plant equipment needed for water, utilities and recirculation. Commissioning will occur in April with preliminary output and optimization of cathode materials to follow.

Dr. Stephen Campbell, Nano One’s Principal Scientist, added, “In parallel with pilot plant construction efforts, our team has been busy determining pilot operating parameters while adding intellectual property and value through continued innovation in our chemistries and processes. We are also bringing on talented engineers and scientists in anticipation of exciting development efforts planned in 2017 and beyond.”

About Nano One:

Nano One Materials Corp (“Nano One” or “the Company”) is developing patented technology for the low-cost production of high performance battery materials used in electric vehicles, energy storage and consumer electronics. The processing technology addresses fundamental supply chain constraints by enabling wider raw materials specifications for use in lithium ion batteries. The process can be configured for a range of different nanostructured materials and has the flexibility to shift with emerging and future battery market trends and a diverse range of other growth opportunities. The novel three-stage process uses equipment common to industry and Nano One is building a pilot plant to demonstrate high volume production. Nano One’s mission is to establish its patented technology as a leading platform for the global production of a new generation of nanostructured composite materials.
