Nano One Materials Corp. and Umicore have signed a non-exclusive Joint Development Agreement (JDA) on production process technologies for cathode active materials (CAM) for lithium-ion batteries.

Under the agreement, Umicore will evaluate Nano One’s patented M2CAM One-Pot process technology with the intention to integrate it with Umicore’s proprietary process technology to produce high nickel NMC (nickel, manganese, cobalt) CAM. With the agreement both parties aim to leverage their respective technologies and know-how to further increase the throughput rate while reducing the costs and environmental footprint of CAM production.

The JDA has various phases and stage gates and is the result of evaluating Nano One’s process technology. The JDA, and any future licensing opportunities, are non-exclusive.
