About Nanoramic®



Who we are

Nanoramic® is an industry-leading energy storage innovator creating  solutions based on nanotechnology. Spun out of MIT in 2009, Nanoramic is the exclusive inventor, designer manufacturer and licenser of Neocarbonix® at the Core electrodes for rechargeable Li-ion batteries, Li-ion capacitors, and supercapacitors.

Through this technology, Nanoramic is transforming energy storage for electric vehicles: increasing range, while reducing charge time, costs, and CO2 emissions. Today, Nanoramic works with some of the largest automakers and battery manufacturers to develop and commercialize batteries made with Neocarbonix at the Core. Nanoramic has also demonstrated success bringing technology out of the lab and into industry with ultracapacitors, polymer-based composites, and thermal interface materials.


Our Mission

Nanoramic aims to spark mass EV adoption by bringing Neocarbonix from the lab to market. Through this goal, we want to contribute to a greener future, in which EVs are the passenger vehicle standard. Neocarbonix has the power to make this a reality by overcoming a variety of blockers in the EV industry related to performance, cost, sustainability, and more. 

Nanoramic's business model is backed by 14 years of research, is a capital-light, IP licensing and technology transfer business with over 200+ granted and pending patents worldwide that’s enabling rapid commercialization of Neocarbonix at the Core batteries for EV OEMs.

Proven Success

Bringing Technology from Lab to Market



High Temperature Ultracapacitors

In 2020 Nanoramic successfully licensed  its FastCAP EE Series high temperature ultracapacitors to Electrochem, an Integer Holdings Corporation.

FastCAP EE Series ultracapacitors are ruggedized, hermetically sealed ultracapacitors with rated operation up to 150°C, and high shock and vibration capabilities. Additionally, these ultracapacitors have successfully demonstrated usage in harsh oil and gas drilling conditions. They have exceptionally high power density and are able to be recharged quickly.

FastCap EE Series ultracapacitors have been successfully deployed in select oil and gas applications since 2018. Electrochem is focused on increasing adoption in the oil and gas market, while also introducing the technology to new markets.


In 2022 Nanoramic sold its thermal interface materials product line, Thermexit, to Henkel, a €28Bn chemicals & consumer goods company in Germany.

Nanoramic developed the Thermexit materials from concept to commercialization in three years, generating a robust intellectual portfolio and strong commercial traction. The sale to Henkel was a successful culmination of Nanoramic’s mission to bring disruptive technologies out of the laboratory to solve some of the greatest challenges facing the energy storage industry.
