(News Bulletin 247) – General Motors has made a strategic investment in Nanoramic Laboratories through its subsidiary GM Ventures, the American energy storage and advanced materials company announced on Wednesday.

In a statement, Nanoramic says it plans to collaborate with the automotive giant to support the development of its proprietary nanocarbon electrode technology dubbed ‘Neocarbonix’.

This system, installed at the heart of lithium-ion batteries, should make it possible to improve their costs, efficiency and durability.

Neocarbonix electrodes, produced using a low-cost process based on an advanced 3D nanocarbon bonding structure, are also expected to help eliminate the need for toxic solvents, such as NMP, when the manufacture and
battery recycling.

This agreement comes as GM has set itself the goal of reaching production of one million electric vehicles per year in North America by 2025.

The manufacturer plans to achieve carbon neutrality in its global operations and all of its production by 2040.
