Introducing One of the Fastest Electrodes For Batteries in the World

This press release from Nawa Technologies may be of interest to subscribers. Here is a section:

Breakthrough technology, based on patented Vertically Aligned Carbon Nanotube (VACNT) design, will bring revolutionary improvements in power, energy, lifecycle and charging time

NAWA’s Ultra Fast Carbon Electrode is the fastest in the world, combining highest ionic, electrical and thermal conductivity

Revolutionary nano-sized 3D design means batteries are no longer limited by powder-based systems; increased performance for all batteries, particularly those in electric vehicles

Technology can improve power by a factor 10, energy storage by up to three, lifecycle by up to five and reduce charging time down to minutes instead of hours

Can be used with existing and advanced new battery chemistries; improved safety and more
eco-friendly with less reliance on rare-earth materials too

NAWA’s design can bring significant cost savings – electrodes account for almost 25 per cent of the cost of a battery while today’s global lithium-ion battery market is worth in excess of $35 billion (Avicenne report 2019)

Eoin Treacy's view

There is a great deal more money being invested in battery R&D today than a decade ago. It takes time for innovations to reach commercial utility but they do come eventually. Nama Technologies expects to have the first iterations of its technology available for sale in 2022. Considering the average time of about 4.5 years to double energy density that’s about on schedule. It will also coincide when Tesla upgrades are expected to hit the market.
