At Nexceris, we have significant experience and expertise in researching and developing the next generation of lithium-ion batteries. In fact, Nexceris is leading a multi-year project funded by the Department of Energy (DOE) to develop cathode materials for the next generation of lithium-ion batteries. We are also exploring and generating high-voltage spinel cathodes and cobalt-free cathodes.
We want to know what battery challenges you have and how can we assist you.
Some current constraints are happening with the performance of lithium-ion batteries in electric vehicles such as low-driving range, high-purchase and warranty costs.
Some of the ways we are looking to explore:
- High voltage spinel cathodes that are able to take the stress of the cycling process
- Cobalt-free cathodes to reduce dependency on cobalt itself and cost reduction
- Since we are a company dedicated to ceramics, there has been a need in certain industries for other types of batteries besides lithium-ion.
Nexceris stays on the cutting edge of technology to assist advanced energy markets such as:
Nexceris produces perovskite and other oxide-based materials for the air electrode for metal-air batteries. With our extensive experience in spin-on carbon (SOC) materials, we are a good fit for creating these new materials.
Cobalt-free Li-ion Battery Materials
Nexceris is developing a cobalt-free cathode to correct the spinel fail and poor cycle life associated with high-voltage LiNi0.5Mn1.5O4 (LNMO).
Nexceris focuses on Ti-substituted LiNi0.5Mn1.5-xTixO4 to improve cycle life and longevity by forming solid–electrolyte interphase (SEI) to passivate the cathode surface.
THE LEVER PROCESS
Nexceris can help with the entire process from R&D through product launch.
SECURE SUPPLY CHAIN
Nexceris has the ability to prove out product concepts on lab scale equipment before moving to tonnage quantities. We keep volume manufacturing in mind to develop scalable processes for our partners. We also have a strong distribution network to ensure global reach.
Flexible Business Models
Nexceris is open to many working agreements and has experience with licensing, technology transfer, supply agreements and in-house value added manufacturing. We work with our partners to find the best business arrangement for the situation.

Nexceris Participated in a DOE Hydrogen Shot Summit Panel Focused on Clean Hydrogen Production Through Electrolysis
The Hydrogen Shot is part of a larger DOE Energy Earthshots Initiative aimed to accelerate breakthroughs of more abundant, affordable, and reliable clean energy solutions in this decade. Nexceris’ own Scott Swartz, Chief Technology Officer, was a panelist of a breakout session on High Temperature (Solid Oxide) Electrolysis.
Nexceris recently participated in the virtual ARPA-E Energy Innovation Summit and was able to connect with many energy industry experts by describing their Phase II project aimed at a solid oxide fuel cell based hybrid power system.
