Ni-CAT believes that the speed of EV transition is still not enough to prevent global warming and replace carbon-based fuels in near future, and it is not related to money or resources. Webelieve that speeding up EV transition is possible with our novel methodology, which combines three approximation to the solution: our unique AI-assisted materials research, digitalized reactor farm and our novel surfactant-assisted synthesis.As the electrification of the automotive industry expands, we deliver state-of-the-art technologies to meet the industry’s high-quality standards. To help our customers to step up the EV transition, we will be working on our research and development of lower-cost/higher performance, ultra-high energy density battery materials to serve innovative solutions for a brighter future. With our expertise in the application of machine learning in material science, we are developing low cobalt/high nickel lithium cathode materials. Cathode determines the type of a lithium battery and is the limiting factor for nickel-based batteries. Further improvement in battery performance is possible through AI-assisted custom high nickel cathode materials with increased charge rate, charge to discharge ratio, tap density, or any other specifications. By our unique computer-controlled digital reactor farm, we numerize synthesis parameters and output specifications for the machine learning algorithm we have been developing.
