Lithium-Ion Battery Anodes
X-MAT Technology Improves Battery Performance
How does X-BATT® increase lithium-ion battery performance?
The current lithium-ion battery anode is made of graphite, a particular form of ordered carbon. Many researchers have used silicon-based materials (nanoparticles, coatings, cages, grids, etc.) to improve the performance of lithium-ion battery anodes. However, each of these solutions has detriments such as lower cycle life and/or higher costs. Instead of mixing silicon and carbon in discrete particles or structures, X-BATT® combines silicon and carbon at the molecular level to improve overall battery performance.
More details on the X-BATT® technology breakthrough can be found on the X-BATT® Website.
Currently, 95% of lithium-ion batteries end up in landfills and are not recycled. As the production of electric vehicles continues to increase, so will the demand for graphite. Currently there are no domestic sources for battery grade graphite so recycling graphite from spent lithium-ion batteries should be a priority.
X-BATT® technology is the solution for the reuse of recycled graphite from scrapped lithium-ion batteries. Our process provides a second life application for graphite from spent LiBs, creating a circular and sustainable, “grave-to-cradle” process while mitigating global supply chain risk.
Recent laboratory results indicate that X-BATT® technology can “rejuvenate” spent recycled graphite to higher energy performance than pristine, never-been-used graphite! Learn more about the X-BATT® Recycled Graphite Technology here.
