Nanoramic is the exclusive designer, manufacturer, and licenser of the Neocarbonix electrodes for rechargeable Li-ion batteries, Li-ion capacitors, and supercapacitors. Below is our recent interview with Katie Willgoos, Vice President of Marketing at Nanoramic Laboratories:
Q: Could you provide our readers with a brief introduction to Nanoramic Laboratories?
A: Established 2009 in Boston, MA, Nanoramic was founded by MIT graduates and experts in the use of nanocarbons in energy storage devices. Nanoramic’s Neocarbonix electrode technology is revolutionizing Li-ion batteries and ultracapacitors by creating electrodes without traditional polymer binders. Nanoramic’s other brands include FastCAP Ultracapacitors, a line of extreme environment ultracapacitors, and Thermexit, a line of high performance thermal interface materials.
Q: You’ve recently unveiled cutting-edge battery technology; could you tell us something more?
A: Nanoramic has innovated Neocarbonix™ technology to create electrodes with an advanced 3-D nanoscopic carbon binding structure. The resulting product provides reduced cost and greater power, energy density, and cycle life performance compared to traditional battery designs. It also enhances stability and provides better lifetime in extreme environments. This technology will impact such industries as electric vehicles, grid storage, consumer electronics, power tools, and aerospace and defense.
Q: What are the benefits of using Nanoramic’s Neocarbonix™ in EVs?
A: Nanoramic’s Neocarbonix™ electrode technology addresses the most critical challenges facing energy storage for the electrical vehicle market. In simple terms, Neocarbonix gives battery makers more bang for their buck. Neocarbonix works with traditional battery manufacturing processes but eliminates the most costly manufacturing steps while increasing the energy density of the resulting battery. To the end user, this means more affordable electric vehicles with increased range.
Q: What are the projections for the electric vehicle market and lithium ion battery industry?
A: The electric vehicle Li-ion battery market is projected to grow from $30Bn today to $160Bn in 2030. Nanoramic’s flexible business model allows us to efficiently address customers’ needs as the industry grows.
Q: What are your plans for the future?
A: Our plan is to make Neocarbonix the leading electrode manufacturing technology in the industry.
