The financial injection will be used to further scale up Delft IMP's nanocoating technology. This produces batteries that are more sustainable, and also makes other sustainable possible.
Delft IMP ("Intensified Material Production") is a spin-off from Delft University of Technology and has unique expertise in developing ultra-thin coatings on powders and patented technology to produce these materials at scale. The ultra-thin nanocoatings protect the material powders in the battery and thus improve its service life.
With this application technology, Delft IMP is able to control the process to optimise the film thickness and reduce the use of scarce raw materials, such as cobalt. Sustainable use of raw materials is its trademark, as the technology applied to powders has a much wider range of applications. For example, it is also a key player in the development of innovative electrolysis and fuel cell technologies.
CEO Roderik Colen: "With this investment, we can contribute to reducing the use of scarce raw materials. We apply ultra-thin coatings to powdered material and enable production at scale with a unique technology originating from TU Delft."
"Invest-NL invests in companies that make the Netherlands more sustainable and innovative," said Wouter van Westenbrugge, Senior Investment Manager at Invest-NL, "Delft IMP's advanced application technology can significantly accelerate the energy transition and also yields a substantial reduction in CO2 emissions from battery production."
