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, photovoltaics, electronics, and coatings to name a few. Our initial market foci is high energy capacity anodes for lithium-ion batteries and quantum dot based phosphors for solid-state lighting, where we will be able to provide an unparalleled and reliable commercial source of high-quality functionalized nanoparticles.
