OneD Battery Sciences Unveils SINANODE, The Next Generation of Electric Vehicle Battery Technology
PALO ALTO, Calif., June 10, 2021 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

  -- Industry veteran Fabrice Hudry joins as Chief Commercial Officer as
     company launches pilot program for electric vehicle (EV) OEMs

OneD Battery Sciences, leaders in EV battery technology, today announced 
SINANODE, a breakthrough technology to power the next generation of EV 
batteries. To build a battery with more silicon, a longtime challenge for the 
EV industry, SINANODE seamlessly integrates into existing manufacturing 
processes to fuse silicon nanowires onto commercial graphite powders, tripling 
the energy density of the anode while halving its cost per kWh. The higher 
energy density increases battery range while nanowires shorten charging time, 
enabling OEMs to design and produce electric vehicles that answer the booming 
market demand for better batteries.

"During this decade, we will witness the largest and fastest transformation of 
a global industry that's ever been seen, and the decisions made today will 
determine which car makers come out on top of a market poised to bring in over 
$6 trillion between 2025 and 2030 alone," said Vincent Pluvinage, CEO, OneD 
Battery Sciences. "EV demand will be driven by range, charge time, and cost, 
and our SINANODE technology addresses each of these purchase drivers in a 
significant way. Bottom line, 2025 winners of the EV race will be powered by 
the only technology equipped to get the most silicon into the battery."

Over the last three years, leading graphite suppliers, cell makers, and EV 
makers in the U.S., Europe, and Asia, have tested SINANODE by applying the 
technology to commercial EV-grade graphite used in the anodes of EV batteries. 
Key findings and benefits include:

  -- Increased Range and Battery Life - SINANODE successfully fuses silicon
     nanowires to commercial graphite powders from multiple suppliers and
     tripled the anode specific capacity (Capacity > 1000 mAh/g, a measure of
     energy stored per unit weight). The SINANODE anode material can then be
     blended with graphite, to achieve high Initial Coulombic Efficiency (to >
     92%, a key metric used in matching anodes and cathodes) and an higher
     anode specific capacity over more than 1000 full charge/discharge cycles
     than any state-of-the-art EV cells in production today.
  -- Reduced Cost - SINANODE was developed with commercial manufacturing CVD
     equipment available from multiple vendors, using only silane and nitrogen
     gases available in very large quantities at attractive costs. This reduces
     the investments and time necessary to scale up the SINANODE step to EV
     quantities, while decreasing the cost of EV anodes (measured in $ per kWh)
     by almost 50%, when compared to the cost of most competitive anodes used
     in EV batteries today. 
  -- Seamless Integration with Increased Performance - SINANODE offers a fully
     differentiated, globally patented technology that can be deployed with
     multiple existing suppliers in multiple continents, to leverage their
     large investments and the supply chain strategies of the leading
     participants in the fast-evolving EV industry. Rather than trying to
     replace existing suppliers, adding SINANODE replaces inefficient steps in
     the current processing of silicon additives with a scalable technology
     that increases performance and decreases costs of the materials and cells
     used in EVs.

To deploy SINANODE today, the company also announced its pilot programs, 
providing EV OEMs with their own dedicated plant to deploy the SINANODE step, 
creating differentiated nanosilicon configurations for their high-performance 
Li-ion batteries vision and their 2024 EV production cycle ambitions. 
SINANODE's technical achievements, patent portfolio and business model enable 
EV makers to dramatically increase the use of nanosilicon in the anodes of 
lithium-ion batteries, and meet near-term consumer demand for longer range, 
faster charging, and more affordable EVs.

Furthermore, Fabrice Hudry, a veteran energy executive, has joined OneD Battery 
Sciences as Chief Commercial Officer, overseeing SINANODE production as the 
company begins the deployment of pilot production facilities and partnerships. 
Hudry joins the company after a seven year tenure at Samsung SDI, where as Vice 
President of Energy Solutions, he built the company's Energy Storage Solutions 
(ESS) from the ground-up in America, firmly establishing SDI as the #1 Li-ion 
battery manufacturer with the top renewable energy players and leading 
automotive EV pioneering partners.

"What Silicon nanowires can do for the electric car battery is simply 
remarkable, and represents the most long-awaited innovation for the industry," 
noted Hudry. "Joining OneD Battery Sciences as the company launches their pilot 
program is an incredible new opportunity at the perfect time, as I've seen 
firsthand what SINANODE can do to reduce costs and optimize performance 
immediately. I've explored the future of battery technology and believe 
SINANODE is the only technology that will pave the road for a realistic 
solid-state electrolyte battery transition."
