Description

Description: 

A Spanish company designs, optimizes and manufactures advanced materials (carbon-based electrode materials) for energy storage systems, through a proprietary nanomaterial development platform. The team counts with a unique and disruptive technology covered by property rights and know how with impact in clean technology procedures and products, enabling a carbon neutral society.

With a committed mindset in clean technologies, the company┬┤s mission is to improve the energy storage sector, creating more powerful and efficient energy storage systems. For that purpose, they offer a complete portfolio of new generation nanomaterials. The company develops and manufactures its own products and works closely with the final user in the design and integration of nanomaterials.

The company is looking for early-stage collaborations with pseudo and supercapacitors, batteries and fuel cells manufacturers to integrate and customize nanomaterials through license agreements, joint venture agreements and research cooperation agreements.

Advantages & innovations

Cooperation plus value: 
The advantages of the company include a full material design portfolio and specific methods to develop customized advanced materials to be integrated into energy storage systems (ESS) where the addition of metal oxide nanoparticles synthesized through their technology conveys great capacitance features to pure graphene materials. In addition to this, the company owns a versatile material technology that covers a method of obtaining nanocomposites composed of carbonaceous materials such as graphene and metallic oxides where the product process is optimized (environmentally friendly, scalable and viable). The nature of the carbonaceous base is a key factor in the hybrid nanomaterial since it contributes to total specific capacitance through a double layer formation. As a result, the carbon material acts as a support for the nanoparticles and improves the conductive properties of materials. The company┬┤s value proposition is based in the development of the electrode material in an early stage and in close collaboration with the final partner in order to customize and optimize the nanomaterials features in pseudo and supercapacitors, batteries and fuel cells. Their aqueous electrolyte technology involves a much safer and cleaner process, less hazardous compared to that of organic electrolytes.

Stage of development

Cooperation stage dev stage: 
Available for demonstration

Partner sought

Cooperation area: 
The company seeks, SMEs, manufacturers and research centers from the energy storage device sector (pseudo and supercapacitors, batteries and fuel cells) to integrate and customize nanomaterials under the following cooperation types: License agreements (licensing in/licensing out), Joint venture agreements and Research cooperation agreements. They could either use external technologies and/or processes involved in electrode materials and make the implementation in devices manufactured by other companies, or develop the electrode materials and work in close collaboration with a specific device manufacturer for its integration. With regard to research cooperation agreements the company is looking for partners from the lithium and post lithium (hybrid battery systems) sector, mainly SMEs and Technology centres.
