Swiss startup Innolith AG claims to have developed a new battery with an extremely high density of 1,000Wh/kg. The Swiss company claims that the new battery pack, called the Innolith Energy Battery, will allow EVs to go up to 1,000 kilometres on a single charge.
The Innolith Energy Battery, claims its creator will also radically reduce costs due to the avoidance of exotic and expensive materials combined with the very high energy density of the system.
The Swiss startup also claims that its new 'Energy Battery' will be the first non-flammable lithium-based battery for use in EVs. The company claims that it uses a non-flammable inorganic electrolyte which removes the major reason for battery fires seen on current EV vehicles. Current lithium-ion battery packs use an organic electrolyte that is flammable.
Innolith plans to bring the new Energy Battery into the market soon. Initially, the company plans to use the new battery pack in a pilot production run in Germany. After the pilot production, the company plans to enter into licensing partnerships with battery manufacturers and automotive companies interested in its new high-density battery pack. The Swiss company expects development and commercialisation of the Innolith Energy Battery to take between three to five years.
Speaking about his company's new high-density battery pack, Sergey Buchin, CEO of Innolith AG said, "The EV revolution is currently stymied by the limitations of available batteries. Consumers want an adequate range on a single charge in an affordable EV, and confidence that it is not going to catch fire. The Innolith Energy Battery is the breakthrough technology that potentially can meet all these needs."
Talking about the comapny's new innovative new high-density battery tech, Innolith Chairman, Alan Greenshields said, "This new breakthrough has been made possible by years of dedicated research into all aspects of inorganic electrolytes and their application to rechargeable batteries. Simply put, the experience gained in how to build high power batteries with exceptional robustness and cycle life has proved to be the right basis for building high energy products too. The absence of organic materials, a key aspect of Innolith's battery technology, removes the critical source of safety risk and chemical instability of high energy batteries. It all fell into place in 2018 from an R&D perspective, with several extraordinary breakthroughs."
