Our Technology: The Power of Nature is OUR Process
The Power Of Nature Is OUR Process
Primet brings the physics of fine particles and materials engineering together through our patented NanoScission® suite of technologies:
- NanoScission®, like a harnessed tornado, allows us to shear particles, rather than smash or grind. For those who utilize our process, the advantages are extreme. Now we can engineer small particles in perfect uniform crystals to any specified size.
– Agglomeration takes those particles and makes microporous agglomerates that are easily handled in the battery electrode manufacturing process.
– Heat Treatment reacts and grows the particles as near perfect crystals.
At the same time, the process requires a fraction of the energy required by traditional methods, and a far shorter production time in a radically reduced physical plant. Coupling those attributes with our water-based process allows us to stake our claim as a truly green next generation clean technology.
Traditional chemical technologies to make small particles consume large amounts of energy and produce inferior inconsistent materials, relative to leading edge market needs. This results in inefficient use of resources and reduction in ability to scale production. They are extremely capital intensive in terms of equipment cost, manufacturing space needs and energy consumption.
This means by deploying Primet’s NanoScission® technology, the average materials manufacturer will be saving more than $50 million on the cost of building a world-scale plant and over $10 million in annual operating costs. These savings can also be realized very quickly in retrofit and expansion of existing production facilities.
Primet’s process has been recognized by industry experts, US government laboratories, and the world’s leading battery producers as a step-change improvement over conventional technology for the production of advanced materials. The technology has been proven on a wide array of cathode and anode compositions that are in current use as well as next-generation high-voltage materials. Primet is ready to provide commercial quantities (e.g. 25 kg bags) of electrode materials made at its demonstration facility in Ithaca, NY, so the performance and cost advantages can be tested by our customers.
