ADVANCED BATTERIES & MATERIALS

Battery Technologies

As sustainability-minded manufacturers, government/regulatory bodies and private entities look to a Net Zero future, energy storage solutions and innovations are urgently needed.

Nexceris is proud to be on the cutting edge of battery technologies that support clean energy storage.

Safer Alternatives

As a leading developer of clean energy innovations, Nexceris recognizes that a Net Zero future also demands alternatives to lithium-ion batteries for commercial, industrial and residential electricity applications. That’s why we’re aggressively pursuing the research and development of Li-ion alternatives for the stationary energy market, to be released in 2023. These alternatives will be:

 

  • Safer, longer in duration, and more cost effective than foreign-sourced Li-ion batteries
  • Produced through low-cost, scalable manufacturing processes using abundant domestically-sourced raw materials
  • Flexible, with the ability to tailor storage assets to specific applications
  • Inherently safe, with no risk of fire

Li-ion Safety

In 2017 we released Li-ion Tamer® safety products for use in stationary energy storage facilities. Distributed exclusively by Honeywell since 2020, this range of lithium-ion battery sensors detect and can prevent failure (thermal runaway and fire) before it starts. We are currently working to expand the Li-ion Tamer® range for incorporation into mobility applications such as electric vehicles.

Battery Materials

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.

Advanced Energy

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:

Metal-Air Batteries
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.

Solving Problems

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.
