Patent agent and Director, Dr. Joseph Guy states that “Nano One has now been issued three patents in relatively short order with only minor revisions indicating an exclusive technological position and this battery patent gives the Company intellectual property protection in a commercially significant application of its proprietary technology. The Company has additional patent applications pending in the US and foreign jurisdictions and this patent is evidence of an expanding intellectual property portfolio.”
“This battery patent is significant in a few ways,” explains CEO Dan Blondal, “and marks another milestone in the growth and valuation of Nano One’s patent portfolio. The Taiwanese are global battery players and this issuance provides validation and positioning in the Asian market. This third patent also extends Nano One’s patent portfolio across the value chain to include processing, materials and now batteries.”
