NEO Battery Materials Ltd. has announced that the Korean Intellectual Property Office (“KIPO”) has issued a core patent of NEO’s silicon (Si) anode material technology following the Notice of Allowance announcement made on November 18, 2021.

Mr. Spencer Huh, President and CEO, commented, “We are glad to announce that the KIPO has issued one of the core patents related to NEO’s low-cost, single-step nanocoating technology for manufacturing silicon anode active materials. As South Korea stands as one of the largest battery manufacturing countries and an epicenter of battery innovation, NEO will continue to strategically establish its presence and development within this market.

NEO will further submit this patent to the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office and the World Intellectual Property Organization to bolster and protect the proprietary manufacturing nanotechnology the Company possesses. With the issuance of this patent, NEO currently retains 3 issued patents and 2 which are pending issuance.

NEO Battery Materials has signed and is under the process of signing 4 additional non-disclosure agreements (“NDA”) which include an established battery cell manufacturer and a European materials manufacturer with multi-billion sales per annum. The Company is accelerating its efforts to target all sections of the lithium-ion battery supply chain from materials to the end-product cell for electric vehicles through collaborative works to commercialization.
