Mu metal oxide powder 2 26-19

  1. 1. Production of Metal Oxide Powders February 26, 2019
  2. 2. What is the problem? • Fossil fuels are cheap • EVs not yet competitive on a cost basis to combustion engine • Lithium battery costs are still too high to compete with fossil fuels • $200/kWh → $100/kWh
  3. 3. How does product/service solve problem? • Metal oxide powders are used to create Li cathodes • Using a novel solvent, MU researcher Chad Xing has developed a flame process for producing metal oxide powders at about 50% of the current cost of cathodes • Cathodes make up ≈ 30% of Li battery cost
  4. 4. What is the market use? Li Battery • 2017: $5 B Li market • 2023: $60 B Li market Cathode • 2017: $205 M • 53% annual growth
  5. 5. What competition exists? • Argonne National Laboratories and 3M own the IP on the cathode • Umicore, BASF, Johnson Matthey, and Targray produce the most metal oxide powders
  6. 6. What is the status of the intellectual property? • US patent pending
  7. 7. What is the stage of development? • Build a pilot plant under current $2 M DOE grant
  8. 8. What is needed for further development? • Investment
