Dr. Tushar Shah, a CNT innovator, joins NanoRial as an Advisor

February 2, 2023: NanoRial is pleased to announce that Dr. Tushar Shah has joined NanoRial as a Technology Advisor to help NanoRial’s rapid growth. He is an inventor of carbon nanotube technology, and worked at Lockheed Martin for 38+ years including as the CTO of Applied Nanostructures. He was also a Former Sr. Principal Scientist at Cabot Corporation.

NanoRial warmly welcomes Dr. Shah into the NanoRial team.

Importance of CNTs in Li-ion batteries

January 5, 2023: “The driving distance of EVs should be over 500 km on a single charge when compared with a combustion engine. To increase the energy density of EV batteries, the replacement of carbon black with CNTs is an inevitable choice, because the smaller the amount of conducting agent, the higher the energy density of LIBs.”

This article (worth a read!) discusses the importance of carbon nanotubes (CNTs) in enabling advanced Li-ion batteries. The article highlights the dispersion process as a key technical hurdle that needs to be overcome – this is the focus of NanoRial, and why NanoRial’s technology is key to unlocking mass EV adoption.
