As a leading battery materials and technology company – with operations in both Canada and the United States – NOVONIX provides advanced, high-performance materials, equipment, and services for the global lithium-ion battery industry.
The early beginnings
NOVONIX has been critically focused on technologies and materials that support long-life, high-performance battery applications since its formation.
Dr. Chris Burns, CEO and Co-Founder of NOVONIX, worked under Dr. Jeff Dahn at Dalhousie University as a graduate student researching more efficient ways to determine the lifespans of lithium-ion batteries. This led to the development of the Ultra-High Precision Coulometry (UHPC) systems and technique that NOVONIX is known for today.
As NOVONIX has grown, it has expanded from providing equipment and services to support the development of longer-life battery technologies, but now utilizing that expertise to develop and scale key battery materials and technologies that will play a significant role in the global expansion of lithium-ion batteries.
NOVONIX provides advanced, high-performance materials, equipment, and services for the global lithium-ion battery industry. Our business units provide critical services and products to our customers, which are among the largest companies in the world.
Our vision is to provide revolutionary clean energy solutions to the battery industry
Our mission is to develop innovative, sustainable technologies and high-performance materials to service the electric vehicle and energy storage industries
Curiosity, Collaboration, Commitment
The battery industry has been growing and evolving at a rapid pace and the demand for electric vehicles and grid scale energy-storage systems are flourishing. The need for advanced materials and technologies that support long life, high-performance, battery applications has become more pronounced.
The challenge and opportunity soon became clear: Where will the North American suppliers of these batteries source their materials into the 2020’s and beyond?
There has been massive progress in the performance and adoption of EVs and with that the global demand for them is significantly increasing.
Battery cell manufacturing to support the automotive transition to EVs has gained momentum in the United States, but the supply chain is lagging. NOVONIX anticipated the shortage of materials early on and in 2017 founded its NOVONIX Anode Materials division based in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Today, the Company is a leading supplier of high-performing materials technology with plans to scale significant domestic volumes of synthetic graphite to the U.S. to help meet critical demand.
Our battery testing equipment and research and development services are already being used by our partners and customers to support the development of better cell technology for their products across vehicle, energy storage systems, and other applications.
