Advano and the Tulane University Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering were jointly awarded $300,000 from the LA Board of Regents under the ITRS, “Industrial Ties Research Subprogram”. This grant is to foster closer collaboration between Advano and Tulane, chiefly aimed at furthering the commercialization of Advano’s core silicon nanoparticle manufacturing technology, which was developed at Tulane University. The goal of the grant is to develop self-healing electrode technology for Silicon-based Ultra High Energy Density Batteries to be used in high-value applications such as Electric Vehicles.
