Faster, more sustainable, and more ethical
NAWATechnologies is a deep tech startup tackling climate change head on with a new generation of batteries. The company is developing and commercializing batteries with higher capacities, faster charging speeds, and longer lifespans. Its electrode material made from aligned carbon nanotube mats is helping revolutionize batteries.
A novel manufacturing process guarantees top performance for phones, IoT devices, vehicles, and more. The material is solvent-free, made from CO2 captured from the atmosphere, recyclable, and can be bio sourced, making it an excellent contributor to the fight against climate change and the preservation of natural resources.
NAWATechnologies is leveraging a technology developed over 20 years of CEA research conducted in collaboration with Cergy Paris and Tours Universities, mainly on the development of a carbon nanotube-based material that packs in more than 300 billion nanotubes per cm2. This innovation makes NAWATechnologies a world pioneer in this type of material.
