IPSCIO Record ID: 2021

License Grant
The Company held an exclusive under several US patents covering the coextruded wire and the coextrusion apparatus for producing composite wire for use in lead-acid battery applications.
License Property
Coextrusion is a process by which one material is extruded, or forced through a die, with uniform thickness, onto a core material passing simultaneously through the same die.  The process is capable of extruding lead (or lead alloy) onto any material having adequate tensile strength to pass at high speed through the pressurized dies.  Coextruded lead wire facilitates the use in lead-acid batteries of pure lead or extremely low concentration lead alloys.  The Company believes that grids made from such wire and used in lead-acid storage batteries have improved corrosion resistance and, therefore, longer life, or equivalent life with reduced total material content.

IPSCIO Record ID: 1780

License Grant
The Licensor assigned to the Company all rights under the original license agreement between Licensor and Blanyer-Mathews, the inventors of the co-extrusion technology.  This assignment terminated the prior sublicense between the Licensor and the Company and allowed the Company to apply the technology outside of the area of lead-acid storage batteries, if any such applications are available.  Several US patents covering the coextruded wire and the co-extrusion apparatus for producing composite wires (C2M technology).

IPSCIO Record ID: 332510

License Grant
Canadian Licensor sold the intellectual property rights to the new system to Licensee covering the PUREVAP Nano Silicon Reactor development program and the future commercialization of nano silicon materials made with this new, proprietary and low cost manufacturing process.  Licensor has retained a royalty-free, exclusive, irrevocable, worldwide license to use the new system for all purposes other than the manufacturing of nano silicon powders and wires.
License Property
The process, which is under development, is designed to transform silicon into spherical silicon nanopowders and nanowires for use in lithium-ion batteries.

PUREVAP is a patent pending one-step proprietary process that is being developed by the Licensor that uses a plasma arc within a vacuum furnace to produce high purity metallurgical grade silicon and solar grade silicon from quartz. PUREVAP reduces the quartz with carbon using a plasma submerged arc. Under vacuum, and at very low operating pressure, the silicon is refined in a one-step process removing all impurities and transforming it to its purest form, resulting in a high purity silicon. The Licensor expects that the silicon grades produced by PUREVAP will, when commercialized, be used for different applications, including solar energy.

The PUREVAP Nano Silicon Reactor (NSiR) is designed to transform silicon into spherical silicon nanopowders and nanowires for use in lithium-ion batteries. The new proprietary process is designed to be highly scalable and will eventually allow the production of silicon nanopowders in large quantities at a competitive cost with other materials used in the lithium-ion space. The PUREVAP Nano Silicon Reactor can use different purities of silicon as feedstock.

A PUREVAP pilot system is capable of producing 200-metric tonnes per year of silicon metal directly from quartz.

Field of Use
Field of use is for the use in lithium-ion batteries.

Licensee is developing the PUREVAPTM QRR and the PUREVAPâ„¢ SiNR, two new innovative plasma-based processes which will permit the low-cost manufacturing of High Purity Silicon Metal, Spherical Nano-powders and Nanowires for Next-Generation Lithium-ion Batteries.

License Property
These patents relate to batteries using aluminum and sulfur.

A battery is provided comprising an aluminum anode, an aqueous sulfur catholyte, and a second electrode capable of reducing sulfur.  A polysulfide cathode (for use with the above battery or independently) includes solid sulfur at ambient temperatures, and the cathodic charge stored in that solid sulfur can be directly accessed.  An anode (for use with the above battery or independently) is also described, with the ability to utilize a substantial fraction of the anodic charge stored in the aluminum when immersed in electrolytes containing over 10 molar alkaline hydroxide.

A sulfur/aluminum battery in which an aluminum anode and an aqueous alkaline/polysulfide electrolytic solution are in direct contact.  At high polysulfide concentrations, parasitic chemical reactions between the aluminum and sulfur are minimized, allowing for efficient oxidation of the aluminum anode, and resulting in a battery having high energy and power densities.
