Nano One Materials Corp (CVE:NNO) (OTCPINK:NNOMF) said Monday it has received the final payment under a C$1.95 million program following the successful completion of a pilot plant project with the Automotive Supplier Innovation Program (ASIP).
The ASIP program is administered by the Strategic Innovation Fund of Innovation Science and Economic Development (ISED) Canada. Nano One's project began in June 2016 and involved the research and development of four different cathode materials for lithium-ion batteries for use in automotive applications.
The company just recently received its last payment for $217,446 under the program, according to a statement.
