SkyNano Granted DOE STTR PI Award to Partner with ORNL's Battery Manufacturing Group

SkyNano has been awarded a DOE STTR PI award through the Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy Office to partner with ORNL on integrating SkyNano carbon nanotubes into high rate battery electrodes.

The STTR award is titled “Conductive Carbons by Design: Electrochemically Tailored Carbon Nanotube Conductive Additives for High Rate Battery Electrodes.” Working with David Wood and his team at ORNL, SkyNano will, develop a cathode architecture that employs advanced carbon additives to increase energy density and lower charging time for batteries that have a direct impact on the deployment of electric vehicles.
