BENEFITS

Benefits of using our technology

 

Cenate’s silicon-containing material has the following competitive advantages for li-ion battery manufacturers:

 

1. High quality

  • Predefined and narrow size/geometry distribution, thus charging and discharging evenly compared to alternatives using crushed silicon

  • Controlled interface between the silicon and the electrolyte chemically, thus avoiding cracking

  • Mechanisms in place to keep the shape of the silicon as it expands and retracts, thus loading evenly over time

  • Keeping control of the chemical and electrical resistance in the material over time, thus keeping the performance

 

2. Tailored material

  • The particles in the material are tailored with an optimal size in order to achieve the required quality  

 

3. Industrial Scalability

  • Many newly developed materials require a long time for the development of the production process. Cenate’s products, however, have from the beginning been designed for manufacturing, and we can deliver products already today

 

4. Low cost

  • In the Cenate reactor it is possible to produce nano-structured silicon at high speed in a centrifuge, at a much lower cost than other methods of producing nanomaterials

  • Lower cost to manufacture using less material

  • Low switching cost through simple integration of Cenate’s silicon anode into existing manufacturing processes

5. Capacity

  • Tests shows that our material delivers high anode capacity compared to conventinal carbon based anode

  • Allows storage capacity to be increased by 40% using a standard cathode, compared to conventional Li-ion batteries

6. Cycle life

  • Increased longevity of battery

  • Test shows high consistent cycle performance

7. Contributing to the reduction of CO2 emissions in production

  • Down to 40% less consumption of materials pr KWH storage capacity compared to available alternatives

 

8. Safety

  • Silicon is a nonflammable material, thus helping reduce the risk of the battery catching fire compared to conventional alternatives.

  • Silicon is a non-toxic material.

  • Cenate silicon-containing anode material has undergone rigorous testing in third-party labs and certification houses to ensure their safety under normal operating conditions, and have been proven to meet the safety and quality certifications.

 
 
Application areas

 

Silicon anode batteries offer high performance capacity as compared to other conventional batteries. The replacement of graphite anode with silicon is expected to be one of the biggest trends in the global battery market. Cenate’s silicon-containing material can be used in the  following battery applications:

 

Consumer electronics

  • 3G/4G Cell Phones

  • Laptops

  • Tablets

  • MP4 Players

  • Digital Cameras

 

Automotives

  • Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles

  • Hybrid Electric Vehicles

  • Electric Vehicles

  • Electric Bicycles

 

Industrial

  • Cordless Power Tool

  • Deep Cycle

  • Emergency Backup

  • Industrial Battery

  • Marine Battery

  • Medical Equipment

  • Military Battery

PRODUCTS 

Cenate has the technology to revolutionize battery capacity. In our advanced nano particles we have developed a series of functions and attributes required by tomorrows battery industry.
Below are some of the properties we can offer:

 

  • Silicon based nano particles of similar size and geometry

  • Material allowing particles to expand while keeping their geometry

  • High performing, high coverage coatings for our nano materials

  • Particles surviving customer’s downstream processes

  • Material providing our customers with reduced production cost, enhanced battery capacity and extended cycling capability

We are currently offering material samples under NDA.

The production concept

 

Cenate uses a new and proprietary reactor concept in order to produce its next-generation silicon containing anode materials. This production process makes it possible for us to make highly homogenous and controlled particles and also allows us a rapid scale up to large scale industrial volumes. Equipment engineering for such scale up commenced late 2019, and we are currently preparing for full scale industrial production based on promising and strong customer interest.
