NANO SILICON REACTOR (NSIR)
The PUREVAP™ Nanosilicon Reactor (NSiR) is an adaptation of the Quartz Reduction Reduction (QRR), which it relies on for feedstock to manufacture a range of nano spherical powders and wires ( from< 0.20 µm up to 5 µm).
The NSiR’s addressable markets — much like the QRR — are geared towards the renewable energy revolution. Nanosilicon revolutionizes battery technology critical to electric vehicles and battery storage while enabling cost-effective green hydrogen production.
THE NSiR PROCESS
The process begins with battery-grade feedstock from the QRR, which is placed into the Nanosilicon Reactor and undergoes a plasma-based transformation into nano-sized silicon, at which point it’s commercially ready.
The NSiR — much like its mother technology, the QRR — develops silicon materials efficiently, cost-effectively, and sustainably.
Li-ion BATTERY TECHNOLOGY
Replacing graphite with nano silicon in Li-ion battery anodes empowers greater battery capacities, improved charging speeds, and reduced self-discharging. These attributes make nano silicon perfect for electric vehicles and portable electronic batteries, two increasingly.
Reacting nanosilicon powder with water produces twice the amount of green hydrogen relative to conventional hydrolysis techniques, achieving the lowest per-unit costs of green hydrogen on the market.
PUREVAP™ NSiR DISRUPTIVE POTENTIALS
The NSiR manufactures a flexible range of enhanced nanomaterials capable of revolutionizing the battery and green hydrogen sectors to the benefit of global decarbonization efforts.
The NSiR produces nanosilicon materials of a variety of sizes, from < 0.20 µm up to 5 µm to meet diverse end-market needs.
Incorporating nanomaterials into Li-ion battery anodes — rather than conventional graphite — boosts gravimetric capacity by 10x and volumetric capacity by 3x.
