Next generation battery materials for rechargeable batteries
The development of better battery materials for rechargeable batteries is key to the future of many industries. Utilizing our long history within catalysis and surface science; from product development at the nanoscale to fully industrialized manufacturing at ton-scale we are developing the next generation battery materials for rechargeable batteries that will be safer, lighter, more durable, faster to charge, more powerful and cost-efficient.
We have focused on the development of innovative active cathode materials that address application-specific requirements such as energy- & power density, cycle- & calendar life and cost. Within energy storage applications include stationary, eMobility and electronics.
Through our partnership with Faradion, we are able to offer high energy density and long-life sodium-ion (Na-ion) cathode materials.
Faradion is leading the way in Na-ion technology, which is inherently more cost-efficient than comparable Li-ion technologies. Faradion’s Na-ion technology is a drop-in solution for Li-ion cell manufacturers.
Our LNMO cathode material is a Cobalt free high voltage (5V) spinel for next-generation Lithium-ion (Li-ion) rechargeable batteries.
The advantages of the LNMO (LiNi0.5Mn1.5O4) battery chemistry are numerous. The high working potential and thereof high energy density enable longer ranges or a smaller battery package, whilst the 3-dimensional spinel structure enables fast battery charging. The absence of Cobalt and relative low Nickel content makes it a cost-effective choice compared to today’s mainstream Li-ion battery chemistries.
We believe that successful battery development derives from a close cooperation between the customer, cell manufacturer and battery chemistry supplier. We, therefore, continue to invest substantial R&D efforts into customer specific programs, to jointly engineer the battery system that will keep you in the forefront of Li-ion battery performance.
