New Silicon Anode Technology Promises 28 Percent Longer Run Times
Chicago-based NanoGraf says it has developed a new silicon-based battery chemistry with much higher energy density than is currently available.

NanoGraf, a Chicago-based start-up, says its silicon anode will enable “the world’s most energy-dense cylindrical 18650 cell,” with much higher run time than is possible with traditional cell chemistry.
Much of the funding for development of NanoGraf’s tech right now is coming from the military.
NanoGraf plans to open a plant in 2022 in Chicago to produce the silicon-based powder but is not planning on producing any batteries itself.
With lithium-ion batteries, even small improvements can make a big difference, translating to range in an electric car or longer life in a computer or tablet. That’s why it’s potentially a big deal that the Chicago-based start-up NanoGraf says that its silicon anode will enable what CEO Francis Wang calls “the world’s most energy-dense cylindrical 18650 cell,” with 800 watt-hours per liter (Wh/L). That’s a 28 percent higher run time than what’s possible with traditional cell chemistry, the company said. Reduced weight is also promised, as is—long term—less cost.

NanoGraf’s technology was developed at Northwestern University in 2012, and the company was started to commercialize it. Wang isn’t a founder, but came on board in 2015 and has been CEO for the past three years. The company now has 32 employees and has raised $23 million since its inception—largely from the military.

The interest from the armed services is obvious, because NanoGraf says it can improve operating times for soldiers’ portable equipment, and cut the weight of a 20-pound battery pack (the second-heaviest thing they carry, after body armor) by more than 15 percent. “We are a small company and we have to start somewhere,” Wang said. “The military is a great beachhead market for us.”

Innlandet fylke i samarbeid med blant andre Bellona, Eidsiva, Laje, SINTEF og flere, har laget en rapport om behovet og fremtiden for batteriproduksjon (med fokus på det stasjonære fremfor bilbatterier kanskje) og drift i Norge (Innlandet). På side 8 og 9 nevnes feks Elkem, Nanopow, Hydro og mange andre som materialprodusenter. REC er ikke med i oversikten over disse aktørene. Blant produsentene er feks Freyr, Morrow og Siemens. På lagring nevnes blant andre Scatec. Det er flere som ikke er nevnt, uten at jeg vet hvorfor. Noen som har tanker rundt dette? Nå er det ikke gitt at silangass eller silisium vil få en plass i batteriene, men solar er uansett et satsingsområde parallelt med energilagring/batteri.

Ford Motor needs batteries for its electric vehicles more than semiconductor chips, CEO Jim Farley told CNBC's Jim Cramer on Thursday.

His comments come after the Detroit automaker shut down customer reservations for an upcoming electric version of the F-150 after they hit 200,000 units, which is more than double Ford's annual production capacity for the vehicle. The electric F-150 Lightning is scheduled to go on sale in the spring.


"We'll get the semiconductors, that's a matter of prioritizing the (battery-electric vehicles) over the (internal combustion engine) vehicles," Farley said during a webcast for the CNBC Investing Club with Jim Cramer. "The issue is batteries. That's what we have to solve."

Farley said the automaker is "completely oversubscribed with our battery electric vehicles," specifically the F-150 Lightning. He told CNBC last week that Ford was doing "whatever it takes" to double production capacity for electric F-150 pickup.

Farley's comments may surprise many as the automaker continues to deal with a global shortage of semiconductor chips that has wreaked havoc this year on the global automotive industry.

Automakers like Ford are increasingly striking deals to source materials and parts for electric vehicles, specifically batteries, to potentially avoid supply chain interruptions like the chips shortage has highlighted.

There's worry by some Wall Street analysts that demand for EVs will exceed the expected supply of critical materials such as lithium, creating a problem for automakers to produce the vehicles.

Jeg har tidligere spekulert i det også. En BAM i Narvik følte jeg var sannsynlig etter at AKH lanserte sine planer innen batteri der. Jeg har tidligere sagt at det kan bli JV mellom AKH og G14 i ML, med REC som leverandør av silangass. Nå kan det godt tenkes at det blir noe i Narvik.

Absolutt noe som kan skje tror jeg :)

HERZELIYA, Israel, Jan. 4, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- StoreDot, the pioneer of extreme fast charging (XFC) battery technology for electric vehicles, has announced the first close of its Series D funding round of up to $80 million, the majority of which have already been secured. The round is led by key strategic investors, strengthening StoreDot's partnerships in the global automotive battery eco-system. The lead investor is the fast-growing flagship Vietnamese electric vehicle manufacturer, VinFast, which plans to scale up manufacturing and deploy StoreDot's Extreme Fast Charging in future EV architectures.

- The capital will be used for completion of StoreDot's R&D and mass production scale-up of silicon dominant extreme fast charging (XFC) battery cells by 2024

- StoreDot is currently shipping cell samples for real-world testing by leading automotive manufacturers

Participants include bp ventures, a current StoreDot investor and active partner, underpinning its purpose of reimaging energy for people and our planet. In addition, Golden Energy Global Investment Ltd., a wholly owned company by EVE Energy's founder, Dr. Liu Jincheng, will be one of the participants in the funding round.

The funds raised by this round will be used to complete StoreDot's research and development for its silicon-dominant extreme fast charge (XFC) battery cells for electric vehicles and continue its progress on Extreme Energy Density cells based on Solid State technology for future deployment. This funding also enables the company to ramp up its California-based R&D center and commence scale up operations in key global locations, in readiness for full mass production of cells in 2024.

Dr Doron Myersdorf, StoreDot CEO: "This strategic round of funding, with principal investors coming from leading automotive, energy and technology companies, is a huge vote of confidence in StoreDot, its XFC battery technologies, our long-term product roadmap and our world-class technology and innovation that are all aimed to solve the Range Anxiety of EV drivers.

"We are now properly funded to take our silicon-dominant XFC cells to the end of the R&D phase and into scale-up in readiness for mass production in 2024 for global vehicle manufacturers. It will help overcome the major barrier to EV ownership – charging times – providing a 50% reduction, and, ultimately, helping us all achieve a zero-emissions, clean world."

Pham Thuy Linh, Deputy CEO, VinFast: "Enhancing customer experience is our top priority. We have been making dedicated efforts in research, connecting global intelligence by forming partnerships with and investing in breakthrough technology companies, especially in EV battery such as StoreDot and its extreme fast charging (XFC) proprietary technology.

"StoreDot which is led by gifted scientists and experienced entrepreneurs, along with strong support from VinFast and other strategic investors, is believed to gear up for mass production globally in a very near term."

StoreDot is in advanced talks with leading global car makers for integration of its XFC technology into their future models. The Company demonstrates a clear technology roadmap including its next generation XED, extreme energy density solid state cells with planned mass production in 2028.

Det kan bli mye penger å hente her om REC får kunder.

Commercial interest in silicon anodes and investments into start-up companies has continued through 2021 – IDTechEx estimates that $1.9B of funding has now made its way into silicon anode start-ups.

Demand from other EV segments and consumer devices still represent a significant opportunity for silicon anode material and IDTechEx forecast that by 2032, demand for silicon anode material will reach $12.9B.

Enevate entered into a license agreement with battery manufacturer EnerTech International
Enovix went public via a SPAC that valued the company at $1.1B
Elkem established a separate silicon anode company Vianode
Group 14 entered into a joint venture with SK materials for the supply of silane gas,
Sila Nano launched their battery technology in the Whoop fitness wearable

https://batteriesnews.com/competition-silicon-anode-market-idtechex/

G14 har jo JV med SK, men de sier fortsatt at de ønsker å bygge flere fabrikker rundt i verden.

Drop-in factories will be one piece of the puzzle to help OEMs meet demand where it’s needed. With joint ventures taking center stage this year, we’re continuing to do our part to build out a domestic battery ecosystem here in Washington with our commercial-scale Battery Active Materials (BAM) factory – plus four additional factories in the works all over the globe – to help take control of supply chains.

https://www.linkedin.com/posts/group14-technologies_gm-volkswagen-build-up-their-battery-supply-activity-6884267048373886976-Wch2


Sila har fått inn penger til å bygge fabrikk så det blir spennende å se hvor de velger.

We launched our next generation material in the WHOOP 4.0—one of the most advanced, 24/7 health and fitness wearables. We also closed $600 million in Series F funding to begin development of a new North American 100 GWh plant.

Sila har også sagt deres fabrikk i US skal ligge i «north america»
Og «east of the cascades»
Moses Lake treffer bra der.

Som TT sa « they have to come to us or go to China»
Silankapasiteten Sila Nano trenger er hele ML.
Og dersom ny fabrikk skal bygges i henhold til deres «rute» så blir det snakk om 2025/26 tidligst.

Det morsomme her er vell att Sila skal være i drift «big scale» i 2024.

Tror Sila og Rec har alt klart, venter bare på BBB/SEMA
Samme med G14.

Fant også nettopp ut Sila har CATL som «client»
Mulig CATL skal bruke anodene til både G14 og SilaN

Det sikres i alle ledd, men silanleveransen er på «hold»


Jeg er ikke overrasket hvorfor REC søker om utvidelse i ML
