Advancing Nanoparticle Manufacturing
Our world is going to the nanoscale. Our goal at Advano is to enable future technology by streamlining nanoscale manufacturing and processing.
Founded in 2014, Advano is a nanoparticle manufacturing and processing company that will disrupt the way nanoparticles are currently made. Advano features an innovative 4-in-1 step nanoparticle manufacturing process that is rapid, simple, efficient and highly scalable. The functionalized nanoparticles produced by Advano's process are high quality and are produced more affordably than current market price.
Our initial product focus are silicon nanoparticles due to their ubiquitous applications in lithium-ion batteries, carbon-capture, electronics, and superhydrophobic coatings. Our initial interest is high energy capacity anodes for lithium-ion batteries where we will be able to provide an unparalleled and reliable commercial source of high-quality functionalized nanoparticles.
Our Development Philosophy: "Scale-First"
As technology advances to smaller, more powerful, and more affordable components the demand for smaller, higher quality and more affordable advanced materials will exponentially increase. Regarding nanoparticles, 225,000 tons of nanoparticles were produced globally in 2015 and is expected to grow to 545,000 tons by 2019. However, the manufacturing and processing of these materials at high qualities and at commercial scales is rarely reliable, creating a very real pain-point.
Over 90% of advanced materials developed in laboratories are not able to scale successfully to commercial-scale production. At Advano we are unique by having a "scale-first" mentality regarding material development. By adopting this mentality we are able to dramatically shorten the time and cost associated with commercializing an advance material. Our goal is to become a recognized global leader in commercial-scale solutions for nanoparticle manufacturing and processing.
