Nano One and Worley Provide Insights into Strategic Partnership and Market Opportunities in Cathode Active Materials Production


VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / June 20, 2024 / Nano One Materials Corp. (TSX:NANO)(OTC Pink:NNOMF)(Frankfurt:LBMB)

Highlights:
• Senior executives from Nano One and Worley provide video update.
• Low-cost, rapidly deployable plant design made possible by eliminating waste and waste treatment.
• Relationship with vendors and supply chain partners to generate economies of scale.
• Next steps include developing standardized design package and joint marketing.
• Recent market projections show significant growth for Lithium Iron Phosphate (LFP).

Nano One® Materials Corp. ("Nano One" or the "Company") is a clean technology company with a patented process for the production of lithium-ion battery cathode active materials (CAM) that enable secure and resilient supply chains by reducing cost, complexity, energy use, and environmental footprint. The Company recently formed a strategic partnership with Worley, a global professional services company of energy, chemicals and resources experts, to deploy Nano One's patented technology globally to produce cleaner, cost-competitive CAM for lithium-ion batteries to support the energy transition. Worley Chemetics will design and fabricate the process reactors, incorporating metal alloys that are specifically designed for corrosive environments.

The strategic partnership harnesses Nano One's disruptive technology and supply chain partners, and Worley's industry-leading experience with engineering, procurement, vendors, and construction, to accelerate the commercialization, global deployment, and economies of scale for advanced CAM manufacturing solutions.

Mr. Blondal commented, "The market for battery materials remains significant, with an imperative for cost-effective processes that mitigate the growing risks of sodium sulfate permitting, water usage, and energy intensity. By eliminating waste treatment, we can avoid costly site-specific custom engineering while enabling low-cost, easier-to-permit, modular plants for a wide range of industrial sites. We are collaborating with Worley's experts to develop a standardized engineering design package. This package will be jointly marketed to facilitate faster decision-making and deployment of One-Pot enabled cathode production plants-starting with LFP-in key jurisdictions worldwide."

Ms. Leonard added, "We are delighted to partner with Nano One to help accelerate the transition to a low-carbon future. Our strategic alliance combines Nano One's patented process with Worley's global engineering, process technology, and project delivery capabilities to offer a scalable and sustainable solution for CAM production. We look forward to working with Nano One and their supply chain partners to bring this game-changing technology to the market."

Recent private sector and government reports highlight the growing significance of LFP CAM in the battery material market for stationary energy storage systems (ESS) and electric vehicles (EV). This aligns with Nano One's strategic focus on LFP as a key growth area.
