Research and development company nanoFlowcell is seeking to build a pilot facility in Europe for production of its nanoFlowcell technology and the complementary bi-ION electrolytes as well as the associated application technology.
The innovation centre – known internally as QUANT-City – will encompass a production facility for the nanoFlowcell itself, its membrane and the complementary bi-ION electrolytes.
Pilot production of prototype applications is also planned. This will initially take the form of CKD (complete knock down) production of the QUANTiNO 48VOLT and QUANT 48VOLT vehicles and of stationary generators for off-grid energy supply.
Nunzio La Vecchia, chief executive officer for nanoFlowcell Holdings Ltd, says, “We have achieved a laboratory breakthrough in our bi-ION research that has prepared the way for mass production of the electrolytes – which is a key prerequisite for the market success of our flow cell technology. Supported by investors, we will now build a pilot facility replicating the entire value-creation cycle of our technology. It will serve as a blueprint for further innovation centres for our nanoFlowcell technology to be established worldwide.”
nanoFlowcell Holdings has secured the investment for the facility although no location has been confirmed.
