Nouveau Monde opens laboratory to drive lithium-ion R&D

Thu, 10/21/2021 - 15:12 -- paul Crompton

“Green” lithium-ion battery anode material firm Nouveau Monde Graphite is set to add a state-of-the-art laboratory to its existing quality testing facilities.

The new facilities are part of the firm’s goal to supply “high-performing and environmentally responsible” battery materials that can be tailored to a variety of specifications for electric vehicles (EV) and energy storage applications.

The laboratory wil be situated at its premises in Saint-Michel-des-Saints, Canada.

The new facilities include equipment covering a range of technical measurements such as: particle size, tapped density, full coin cell preparation equipment, ICP trace element analysis, coating quality and impurity analysis by SEM-EDX.

Arne Frandsen, chairman of Nouveau Monde, said: “Today’s investment in R&D is tomorrow’s competitive advantage in the marketplace. 

“We continue our confidential and proprietary development efforts with a view to supporting the world’s leading lithium-ion battery makers and intend to continue investing in cutting-edge technology with the support of best-in-class scientists and engineers.”

Recruitment

The company has recruited Mogalahalli V. Venkatashamy Reddy, and Neel Rahem, to its internal technical team that includes specialists in the fields of lithium-ion batteries, carbon materials, bi-polar plates, electrochemistry, and engineered advanced materials.

Reddy is joining as senior professional researcher to advance the company’s product portfolio.

He has worked as a senior researcher at Hydro-Québec’s research institute, the Centre of Excellence in Transportation Electrification and Energy Storage, and at the National University of Singapore’s Department of Materials Science & Engineering, Advanced Batteries Lab and Department of Physics.

Rahem— a chemist specialised in metallurgy, process chemistry and quality programs— is joining the company as laboratory manager.

Prior to working at Nouveau Monde, Rahem looked after laboratory activities for Canadian Royalties, Minerai de Fer Québec, and Glencore.

Chemical free graphite process could lead to cheaper lithium-ion anode material

Tue, 06/30/2020 - 12:09 -- paul Crompton

Graphite from Magnis Energy Technologies’ mine in Tanzania could allow the firm to produce some of the lowest cost graphite anode material for the lithium-ion battery market .

Natural graphite produced from the company’s Nachu Graphite Project can be turned into a high performing anode material without any chemical, acid or thermal purification, which cuts overall manufacturing costs say the company.

MIT engineers have developed electrodes to avoid the stresses that cause component fracturing in solid-state batteries.

Solid-state batteries need a mechanism that allows for expansion and contraction during charge/discharge cycles, without changing the electrode's outer dimensions.

A new electrode concept from the laboratory of Ju Li, the Battelle Energy Alliance Professor of Nuclear Science and Engineering and Professor of Materials Science and Engineering could meet that need.

Firms to build lithium-ion cells using recycled materials

A Canadian carbon science company and its unnamed partner are set to make a full-scale lithium-ion battery from recycled/up-cycled materials.

The two firms will use material from an electric car power pack and the up-cycled anode material from Saint Jean Carbon (SJC) to make the cells.

Targray

Battery materials supplier Targray has introduced an electrodeposited nickel foil for lithium-ion batteries and supercapacitors.

The electro conductive nickel foil has a thickness range of 4μm to 50μm and a width capability of up to 100mm. According to the US company, the component has better tensile strength, exceptional anti-corrosive properties and improved acid and heat resistance, as well as etching abilities compared to traditional copper or rolled nickel foil.
