Traded in other countries:AHNA.Germany
Altair Nanotechnologies, Inc., was incorporated under the laws of the Province of Ontario, Canada in April 1973. The Company develops, manufactures and sells nano lithium titanate batteries and energy storage systems. Its nano lithium titanate battery systems offer higher power density, longer cycle life, rapid charge and discharge capabilities, operating temperature range and higher levels of safety than conventional lithium-ion batteries. The Company targets applications that effectively utilize the key attributes of its technology. It operates in two major business segments: Power and Energy Group, and All Other operations. The Power and Energy Group develops, produces, and sells battery systems. The All Others group consists of the remaining portions of the previous Life Sciences and Performance Materials groups. Its target market is electric grid, which design, manufacture and sell grid-scale battery systems, which provide ancillary services including frequency regulation. The Company currently is working with multiple vehicle manufacturers and suppliers regarding their hybrid and electric vehicle efforts. In 2012, it focused on the launch of its newest energy storage system, the ALTI-ESS Advantage. First, the company focused its product development on the launch of newest electric grid product, the 2 megawatt ALTI-ESS Advantage, which increased system specification from 1 megawatt to 2 megawatts, while reducing the containerized power module's footprint from 53 feet to 40 feet. Second, it focused on the manufacture of five grid-scale energy storage systems for four customers, who included the Hawaii Natural Energy Institute (HNEI), Vestas, TSK Solar and a U.S. utility company based on the East Coast. The Company has developed, and continues to develop, through its primary materials science research, a lithium-ion battery chemistry using nanotechnologies to create materials offering unique electrochemistry properties for rechargeable batteries. It manufactures cells, modules, packs and turn-key energy storage systems for its target customers, including 24V, 36V, and 48V industrial and transportation systems, a configurable industrial PowerRack system, and large-scale systems for the electric grid. The Company uses compounds of lithium and of titanium to manufacture its nano lithium titanate. It has a total of 12 U.S. and 42 foreign patents. A number of energy storage and power electronic component producers have entered into the frequency regulation market which include include ABB, A123 Systems., BYD, GS Yuasa, LG Chem, Mitsubishi, Parker Hannifin, Saft and XtremePower. Its products typically compete with existing methods for providing frequency regulation and renewables integration rather than competing battery manufacturers. Its current and proposed activities are subject to numerous federal, state, and local laws and regulations concerning machine and chemical safety and environmental protection.
