6TH ELEMENT IS A MONTREAL BASED COMPANY
That Develops, Designs & Manufactures Carbon Based Energy Storage Devices
6th ELEMENT is an incubator for cutting-edge technologies in the Advanced NanoStructure Carbon-based Energy Storage industry under the founding philosophy of always pushing the envelope of research for creating the next breakthroughs.
We are guided by the vision of Changing the World through Innovative Carbon Research, Open Collaboration along with Strategic Alliances and Manufacturing Partnerships.
6th ELEMENT’s ultimate objective is to commercialize its production of Advanced NanoStructure Carbon-based Energy Cells, Supercapacitors and Batteries using Advanced Nano Structured Carbon-Graphene like in nature from waste biomass readily available raw materials with other compounds that create when combined, the unique proprietary electrolyte properties of its Energy Storage Devices (ESD’s).
In order to achieve our successful commercial operations, development includes the three phases as shown in the illustration below.
The first step will be the establishment of a continuous operation pilot plant to produce Advanced NanoStructure Carbon-based Devices (ESD's) in order to optimize operating conditions. 6th ELEMENT intends to obtain substantial financial support from provincial and federal governments for this step, which will be completed over a period of 12 months.
The next step will be the construction of a pre-commercial operation plant. In this step, the Advanced NanoStructure Carbon-based Energy Cells will be at full scale, and as is common practice in the industry, will be repeated as many times as required for full-scale plant operation.
Advanced NanoStructure Carbon-based ESD'S production from this pre-commercial plant will be used as qualification lots for the negotiation of off-take agreements with Strategic Partners and industry leaders in various application sectors such as, but not limited to:
With a planned production of thousands of units per year, this would allow many potential buyers and strategic partners to test our batteries. The equipment will be reused in the full-scale plant, and this investment should therefore be considered as a Phase 1 plant construction. At this step, 6th ELEMENT should proceed with an IPO.
The final step will be the construction and commissioning of the 50,000-tpy plant. This step will require up to $535 million, and could be shared with strategic partners.
The 50,000-tpy capacity of this plant is relatively small compared to the size of the market, which represents 1 million Battery units per year with approximately 5% annual growth. Given the potential global demand for Advanced NanoStructure Carbon-based Batteries sourced from a safe jurisdiction in North America, 6th ELEMENT’s clean technology combined with Quebec's renewable waste biomass readily available raw materials, will inevitably see its plant production capacity increase over the next coming years.
Finally, 6th ELEMENT’s business case also includes Open Collaboration through Strategic Alliances, Technology Licensing along with Manufacturing Partnerships.
WHO WE ARE
We are a dedicated group who develop, design, manufacture and commercialize next generation energy storage devices utilising Advanced NanoStructure Carbon-based Technology Innovations that will profoundly change the global Power Sector by delivering transformational energy storage performance at a greatly reduced cost.
WHAT WE DO
With our unique chemistry and cell design, 6th ELEMENT has developed two robust, cost effective, high power and high energy density, Advanced Carbon-based Energy Storage Devices (ESD's):The first being a highly scalable and First-of-its-kind Supercapacitor and the second being a Next-generation Battery Technology Innovation. Discover our ESD's and components...
Our key focus areas is to provide a range of Innovative Clean Energy Storage Solutions to the Power and Energy Storage Industry across diverse application sectors:
The Innovative solutions developed by 6th Element are a result of the integration of our deep knowledge of Advanced NanoStructure Carbon-based materials and processes with market demand trends.
A driving force behind this is the continuous development of 6th ELEMENT's Energy Storage Devices and their introduction into the marketplace. For that reason, and in order to achieve our successful commercial operations, 6th ELEMENT has also completed the conceptual engineering work for a prototype production plant. This has allowed detailed estimation of the CAPEX and OPEX for its commercial plant.
Close upon all steps of a feasibility study are completed, as follows:
HOW WE DO IT
6th ELEMENT specializes in taking Carbon, nature’s own building block and the basis of all living matter and uses it for the advancement of energy storage. Carbon is one of the most important chemical elements, the most abundant and available on Earth at its simple body state, of which many Carbon-based structures are synthesized for the storage of energy.
Our Energy Storage Devices utilise Carbon which is derived from waste, biomass readily available raw materials, such as wood sawdust, pneumatic tires, seaweed, hemp and other fast growing plant species. The Carbon is then put through our own graphitisation process to maximize its energy density by volume at the most reasonable cost. The result is a very high surface area Carbon that forms the active material for our all our Carbon Energy Storage Devices. Read more...
WHY WE DO IT
6th ELEMENT strives to provide solutions for the processing of materials that can be used to produce many Advanced NanoStructure Carbon-based structures for Energy Storage, regardless of geographic location. Through Open Innovation, we actively engaged in the pursuit of Open Collaboration with people and corporations around the world that have the desire to invest in a better energy future to foster the discovery of innovative products and technological breakthroughs that create unlimited opportunities through cost effective, energy efficiency, and best-value solutions to the Energy storage landscape.
