Business Description

NDB’s mission is to create and implement secure, cost-effective, and commercially competitive nuclear energy systems, including the necessary hardware, fuel, execution, and operational know-how.

Like solar cells, the Nano Diamond Battery produces power by harnessing the radiation released during radioactive decay instead of sunlight.

NDB is a viable climate-independent renewable energy option.


Problem

The NDB will be able to address the energy crisis and climate change, two of the most pressing issues of our time.

The energy crisis is a global issue that significantly impacts individuals and businesses. In the past few months, the prices of utilities and fuel have gone through the roof. This has resulted in global inflation, a recession, and significant damage to the stock market.

Finding a solution to the problem of climate change is significant for the whole world. Due to the limited availability of energy resources, the recent switch to coal energy has made this problem even more dangerous.

Renewable energy and other alternatives fall short of meeting the world’s ever-increasing energy needs because they rely on the climate.

At the moment, nearly no battery technology possesses the potential to perpetuate typical power applications during the devices’ lifetimes, much less do so in an environmentally friendly manner.

NDB is a perpetual and efficient energy source that will meet growing demand while remaining sustainable and environmentally friendly throughout the device’s lifetime.

When given a choice between an NDB-powered device that does not require charging and a Li-ion-powered device that does, the consumer will opt for the NDB-powered solution for obvious reasons.

NDB-powered devices are safer and more efficient than typical battery-powered ones because they don’t need to be charged or refueled and come in tamper-proof packaging.

If current batteries are replaced with NDB, fewer resources will be used to make them, and less greenhouse gas will be released when they are thrown away.

During the production phase, the company will also focus on using technologies to reduce the use of fossil fuels, materials, and machines that are bad for the environment.

Decarbonization is something that we take into consideration.

Solution

NDB can be used in almost any battery-powered electric device because it is modular, scalable from chipsets to industrial applications, and cost-effective.

Devices that run on NDB don’t need to be charged because NDB keeps making electricity for as long as the device works. In contrast, Li-ion batteries in smartphones may lose their charge after a day.

People who use NDB-powered devices won’t need dozens of different cables and won’t have to worry about their devices running out of power.

Business Model

It is anticipated that revenue will come from a variety of markets.

(1) Market for batteries;
(2) Market for microreactors;
(3) Market for nuclear waste recycling;
(3) Market for utility infrastructure;
(3) Licensing and royalties;
(4) Service and consulting.

NDB will be a major player in the battery business because our technology has the potential to be used in almost any product that needs a battery, such as the Internet of Things, space electronics, medical devices, and aviation.

Concerning recycling revenue, nuclear waste is the NDB’s raw material. Recently, it was estimated that the cost of storing nuclear waste around the world would be $100 billion per year. NDB hopes to profit from this trend by expanding into the recycling industry.

Market Projection

Increased energy consumption directly results from technological progress brought about by the proliferation of microprocessors and transistors.

Battery technology evolved to tackle these problems and is now worth $92 billion.

The already enormous battery market is expected to rise due to a higher number of battery-dependent devices. Smartphones, LCDs, tablets, and fitness bands are becoming more popular, which is expected to increase demand for lithium-ion batteries over the next few years. Growth in these areas is expected to propel the battery market’s growth.

High power intends a fixed installation, so we might be able to think of something like a street or a small village.

– Professor Sir Michael Pepper, Chief Technology Officer
NDB Inc.

The market is also expected to see technological progress, such as new products, better efficiency, and lower costs.

By 2025, the global nuclear energy industry, in which NDB Volta could play a part, is expected to be worth USD 49 billion.

The considerable increase in revenue and the sizable profit margins are the primary factors contributing to the company’s discounted cash flow valuation.

It is anticipated that there will be a constant rise in revenues.

NDB may be helpful in a diverse variety of applications. Thus, expanding the business into new areas drives revenue growth.

NBD may move into several new markets every year. The business’s move into these new markets is expected to be a big step forward, leading to a sharp rise in both the number of employees and the revenue.

Our product lines are made for industries that use regular batteries as a power source or for companies that provide power to other businesses.

Space: The need for long-lasting power sources has given our products a great market. Since NDB’s proposed energy solutions don’t depend on external conditions, they can be used for satellites and other space electronics.

Defense: Most defense systems use miniature batteries to power the sensors embedded within them. They need to be monitored and replaced once it is discharged. Replacing them with NDB would be beneficial in cutting the maintenance costs of the systems.

Aviation: The aviation industry uses many sensors. These sensors consume little energy, but they must be consistent and reliable. NDB can play a role in powering applications in the aviation industry.

Internet of Things: IoT devices are either powered by batteries that need to be replaced once they are completely discharged, or they need to be connected to the electrical grid. NDB may transform them into remote devices.

Health: NDB may power invasive medical devices like pacemakers and non-invasive ones like hearing aids, so patients don’t have to constantly charge their devices. Exoskeletons and bionic prostheses are two further examples, besides intrusive devices.

Consumer electronics: NDB may open up new possibilities in the consumer electronics market because they can give devices like cell phones, laptops, and more a longer charge life.

Remote workstations: NDB, particularly its Volta product line, can power remote places that aren’t connected to the power grid.

Data centers: Data centers are becoming the most energy-consuming structures, and the demand will increase exponentially. As a result, a stable energy supply is required. NDB, particularly its Volta product line, has an excellent opportunity to be the source.

Industrial or residential power generation: One of the cities’ extensive causes of high population density is access to electricity. Living off the grid may disperse the population density worldwide. NDB, particularly its Volta product line, can help in achieving this.

Competition

The battery and energy industries are subject to rapid and intense technological and regulatory changes.

We face and will continue to face competition in the development and marketing of our products and services from energy companies, research institutions, government agencies, and academic institutions.

NDB’s innovative battery approach will provide stable power capturing the energy released through the decay of radioactive material. South Australia is a leading center for innovation, startups and R&D in the green energy and critical mineral supply chain.

Attracting NDB to work with our best and brightest and join this driving ecosystem is something we very much look forward to.

– Alex Blood, Executive director, Mineral Resources Department for Energy and Mining
Government of South Australia

Our ability to obtain and maintain a competitive position in these markets will depend on the level of competition in the markets in which we operate, other battery development technologies, and environmentally friendly production processes.

NDB currently has several competitors in the battery industry, many with proprietary technology.

Competitors will include startups and manufacturers of Li-ion batteries and fossil fuel-based technologies. NDB can outcompete them through the technological advances that it strives to achieve.

In theory, the charge density of our product is what sets it apart from other batteries and energy technologies. The ability of the NDB Cell to generate power throughout its lifetime differentiates it from conventional batteries.

For example, Li-ion batteries may run out of charge in smartphones after a day. NDB, on the other hand, is a perpetual battery solution during the device’s lifetime.

The position of the NDB on environmental sustainability is essential. The fast growth of NDB may be a good sign that the company has the potential to become a leader in its field.

NDB requires more in-depth knowledge of its base material for the transducer compared to the current Li-ion workaround. There are fewer talents capable of developing it.

Also, this technology was made possible by the improvement of nanofabrication techniques that were not available before, such as chemical vapor deposition and metallization.

Li-ion is made from a toxic base material and has many problems that people don’t have with fossil fuels, like short battery life. In other words, consumers are forced to go backward regarding convenience and capability.

Traction & Customers

Because the NDB has the potential to be a new, sustainable energy source, some of the best research institutions and companies in the world have expressed their interest in helping bridge the gap between the prototype and the finished product.

NDB became the grand winner of the Orano International Startup Call for providing the most innovative and practical energy solution out of 8,000 competitors from all around the world. As a result, NDB was granted a highly selective accreditation from Orano (formerly Areva), a French nuclear power giant.

In 2020, NDB joined the Alchemist Accelerator because it has helped grow companies like Skype, Tesla, and Baidu that have changed the game. NDB was selected as one of the top candidates among 800+ applicants.

NDB became part of Polihub in Italy to expand its activities in Europe. The UBI Index 2019–2020 says that PoliHub is one of the top five university incubators in the world. Its primary focus areas are the automotive industry, aerospace, and medical applications. Polihub is the ideal place to grow innovative ideas into high-profile businesses in technology.

NDB was recently recognized by the government of South Australia and won the Thinking Critical South Australia challenge as a possible solution to the world’s energy problem. As a winner, the company’s expansion to South Australia is supported by several organizations, such as the Government of South Australia, the Department for Energy and Mining, the Department for Trade and Investment, the University of Adelaide, and the University of South Australia.

Nano Diamond Battery (NDB) was selected as the energy/energy technology business of 2022 by the International Trade Council. The Go Global Award is given to companies, organizations, and individuals who, despite difficult circumstances, are committed to innovation and perseverance.

Investors

We have raised $1,646,832 from previous offerings and now have 83 existing shareholders, including Alchemist Accelerator.

I’ve invested in a number of startup companies that are developing products to improve the world. The people at NDB are working to not just improve but literally transform the world for everyone.

Bringing any new technology to market involves risk and the Nano Diamond Battery is no different, but the benefits to humanity itself will be enormous if successful. So far, everyone I have interacted with at NDB Inc. has imparted confidence that they have the vision, have the realism, and have the determination to bring this to market.

As one of their earliest investors I look forward to their continuing progress. If successful, NDB won’t be compared as the next Google, Uber, Facebook, or Airbnb but rather as the next fire or wheel.

– Brent W. Weeks from Seattle WA

The Nuclear Diamond Battery is a paradigm shifting product that will change all of our lives!

-Frederick Dembowski from Florida

This product will be revolutionary. I think NDB will write an important page in the history of technology, and I am proud of being a word in that page.

– Davide Brunesso from Italy

NDB has the potential to revolutionize the battery industry and to turn the rather hazardous nuclear fuel waste handling into a safe circular economy.

Nano diamond batteries can make the annoying and time consuming need for charging a thing of the past for a lot of the small hand-held devices and appliances we use in our daily life as well as the sometimes cumbersome and “potential-source-of-failure” power cable requirement for critical and remote sensing devices used in many industries.

Not only as a proud investor but also as a consumer, I can’t really wait to see the first NDB products on the market.

– Safak Okay Barutcu from Dubai
