Nanocell Energy – Cobalt-free Li-Ion power cell technologies is the nano-material based power cell manufacturing technology, consisting of material manufacturing methods throughout thin film atom-layer deposition technologies to cell assembly methods and selection of machinery for mass production. The technology package features not only unique material properties, that increase the battery life and safety of use, but also provides an eco-friendly solution to global Cobalt resources at scarce.

The electrification of transportation and rapidly growing share of distributed renewable energy generating sources have already triggered a massive demand for batteries and energy storage systems world-wide. Development of cost efficient manufacturing methods for a heavy-duty, high capacity power cells is now possible by combining Cobalt-free nano-coated carbon conductive composite cathode material, with nano-tube based: anode (SiC), electrolyte membrane and polymer separator materials.

The materials present great potential to outperform an existing LiFePO4 technologies in mass manufacturing. The material cost reduction is guaranteed by eliminating the most expensive component (Cobalt) from cell’s chemical configuration and through use of the most advanced and cost efficient nano-material deposition machines.

The nano-CCL-LFP features a unique material property that increases capacity at low discharge currents (<2C), and self-protects itself by decreasing the discharge capacity at high currents. This property extends the battery life to up to 6000 cycles (STC @ 0.5C).

As an effect of over 20 years of scientific research at Jagiellonian University and AGH in Cracow, Poland, a new nanometric LiFePO4 crystalline and LKMNO Cobalt-free composite cathode materials and their manufacturing processes  and methods of manufacturing have been developed. In the process, a homogenous shape of nano-crystals are produced, consisting of a mix of Cobalt-free Lithium-Ion electrode materials.
