VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Aug. 16, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Dan Blondal, CEO of Nano One Materials Corp. (TSX-V:NNO) (Frankfurt:LBMB) (OTC:NNOMF), today announced that Nano One has received an installment of $624,028 from Sustainable Development Technology Canada (SDTC). This installment is a result of SDTC’s acceptance of Nano One’s deliverables for the first milestone of the pilot plant project and is an advance on the second milestone activities which are already in progress.
“This is the second of four installments from SDTC” said Mr. Blondal, “awarded to Nano One after delivering on its commitments to SDTC including pilot plant commissioning, production of first materials and reporting. The review process is thorough and this achievement further confirms our ability to execute and deliver on our plans.”
The Government of Canada has provided approximately $1.8 million to date in non-dilutive and non-repayable support to Nano One’s pilot project through SDTC and the Automotive Supplier’s Innovation Program (ASIP). Nano One also receives support from the National Research Council of Canada Industrial Research Assistance Program on a related project.
Mr. Blondal added: “SDTC and ASIP are providing critical support for Nano One’s lithium ion cathode materials piloting activities which are drawing attention from major industrial interests in the lithium ion battery space.

About Nano One:
Nano One Materials Corp (“Nano One” or “the Company”) is developing patented technology for the low-cost production of high performance battery materials used in electric vehicles, energy storage and consumer electronics. The processing technology addresses fundamental supply chain constraints by enabling wider raw materials specifications for use in lithium ion batteries. The process can be configured for a range of different nanostructured materials and has the flexibility to shift with emerging and future battery market trends and a diverse range of other growth opportunities. The novel three-stage process uses equipment common to industry and Nano One is building a pilot plant to demonstrate high volume production. The pilot plant is being funded with the assistance and support of the Government of Canada through Sustainable Development Technology Canada (SDTC) and the Automotive Supplier Innovation Program (ASIP). Nano One also receives financial support from the National Research Council of Canada Industrial Research Assistance Program (NRC-IRAP). Nano One’s mission is to establish its patented technology as a leading platform for the global production of a new generation of nanostructured composite materials.
