Due to this, anodes rich in silicon will be significantly thinner than graphite anodes, while remaining functionally similar.
Thinner anodes will allow more electrode material to be packed inside battery cells of the same dimensions – increasing the battery cells capacity while keeping it’s volume unchanged
Volt14 solves silicon’s fundamental challenges to deliver an ultra high-performance solution designed to be scalable and viable for high volume battery markets
Making Silicon Work
Silicon undergoes significant volume changes during charging and discharging, leading to rapid deterioration in battery capacity
Volt14’s proprietary technology addresses silicon’s rapid capacity fade, facilitating it’s technical viability
Offering Total Solutions for Industry Specification Electrodes
Development of formulations and electrodes with target specifications using novel silicon materials requires years of additional R&D investment
Volt14 offers integrated-anodes – total solutions which are tunable for battery cell producer’s anode specifications
A True Drop-In, Viable Integrated Anode
True Drop In Solution
Compatible with most installed cell manufacturing infrastructure. Total anode-solution minimizes development costs compared to internal anode development.
Compatible with most commercial cell formats
Can be integrated to most common cell formats – cylindrical or pouch/prismatic.
Designed to not just match, but surpass graphite price parity.
Our team possesses over 50+ years of chemistry and nanomaterials research and development experience relevant to the development of Volt14’s proprietary technologies
