“Dreamweaver’s advanced nanofiber membranes provide a fitting, low cost, high surface area platform on which to build our electrode structures,” said Stephanie Moroz, CEO of Nano-Nouvelle.

Nano-Nouvelle’s unique high surface area, three dimensional electrodes are to be used in two battery chemistries. The nickel cathode allows the same power to be generated from a smaller sized, lower cost battery, for use in nickel metal hydride batteries, and the tin anode provides 20-50% more energy capacity than existing technologies, for use in lithium ion batteries. With applications in the energy storage grid, stop/start vehicles, niche portable devices, mobile electronics and electric vehicles, the technology has the potential to affect everyday lives as well as contributing to the future of clean technologies.

In order to use processes that are proven for large scale manufacturing, Nano-Nouvelle requires high surface area substrates made with materials that can be delivered efficiently at high volumes. “Dreamweaver’s advanced nanofiber membranes provide a fitting, low cost, high surface area platform on which to build our electrode structures,” said Stephanie Moroz, CEO of Nano-Nouvelle.

Dreamweaver can tailor the substrate for each electrode application developed by Nano-Nouvelle and also scale the production quickly as Nano-Nouvelle aims to license the Nanode™ technology to battery manufacturers. “We look forward to working with Nano-Nouvelle’s licensees, and can provide sustainable manufacturing capability of up to hundreds of millions of square meters per year through our existing manufacturing partners,” said Brian Morin, President & COO of Dreamweaver International. One million square meters could potentially make cathode materials sufficient for 650,000 micro hybrid vehicles. Dreamweaver has existing partnerships with the Herty Advanced Materials Development Center (http://www.herty.com) and P.H. Glatfelter Corp (NYSE: GLT, http://www.glatfelter.com) to manufacture Dreamweaver membranes.

“This is an exciting opportunity for us to contribute broadly to advancing the state of the art of advanced technology batteries,” said Jim Schaeffer, Dreamweaver’s CEO.
