Nanomakers has demonstrated the feasibility of multiplying by 5 times its annual nanoparticles production i.e. 50 tons/year/line. This addresses the need of mass market volumes, especially for electric vehicles batteries and semiconductor industry.
Nanomakers produces at large scale high performance silicon-based nanoparticles. The nano silicon NMSiΩC99 is used to increase the Li-ion batteries anodes capacity. The nano silicon carbide NMSiC99 enables various materials strengthening or the manufacturing of bulk parts without metallic contamination for semiconductor industry.
Nanomakers is a laureate of the European H2020 program: EIC SME Instrument, phase 2, for its project Debimax, which has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation program under grant agreement No 880701. The DEBIMAX project benefits from this grant to increase the production capacity of its carbon coated silicon nanoparticles for Li-ion batteries anode materials.
