CVD Equipment Corp. and Graphene Batteries AS have signed a joint IP development agreement for the NanotoMacro binder-less lithium battery electrodes and related novel battery designs. The companies said this partnership will help speed up the commercialisation of enhanced lithium battery technology.

Leonard A. Rosenbaum, president and CEO of CVD stated, "This agreement represents another step forward in implementing our vision to enable the acceleration of the commercialisation of nano materials. In particular it enables us to combine our 30+ years of equipment design, nano material growth and processing expertise with Graphene Batteries' knowledge in lithium batteries. This agreement leverages the individual strength of both companies and enables a cost efficient exploration of lithium battery technology innovations. CVD anticipates similar collaborative agreements with companies and universities regarding other nano material applications."

"We are happy to be able to combine forces with CVD," stated Rahul Fotedar, CEO of Graphene Batteries. "We expect that our graphene battery core technology can be further enhanced with the material processing knowledge from CVD and result in higher performance materials."

Rune Wendelbo, Graphene Batteries' CTO, who will lead the design and testing of the respective lithium battery technology innovations, added, "The binder-less NanotoMacro electrode manufacturing technology of CVD may enable the design and manufacturing of an electrode with a higher energy density, a 30 per cent cost reduction, an enhanced charging time and a longer lifetime."
