Lithium Metal Batteries
Lithium Metal: Power Up
The recent increase in demand for lithium is due to major advances in battery technology. Lithium is the lightest of all metals, and has the highest electrochemical potential, making it the choice raw material for batteries. Virtually all approaches that affect a substantial increase of the energy density of rechargeable batteries beyond that of lithium-ion batteries require the use of a lithium metal anode.
alpha-En’s lithium metal is purer than what is currently available on the market, free of all base metals and common non-conductive impurities found in the existing commercial supply. We produce our lithium using a room temperature process that does not require or release noxious chemicals. Our process allows for the flexible deposition and intercalation of lithium into custom substrates, which streamlines the manufacturing of batteries of all sizes.
The flexibility of our process allows for production of lithium and compounds in a variety of form factors, for use in primary and rechargeable batteries. These batteries have applications across many different markets. Our product is especially relevant in markets that depend on batteries that provide very high energy densities for long useful life in comparatively lightweight packages, such as the consumer electronic and automotive markets.
Our room temperature, proprietary patented process was developed by alpha-En’s research team in 2013. This novel process is mercury and chlorine free, eliminating the use and release of toxic chemicals and expensive containment costs. Our process enables alpha-En to manufacture pure lithium metal at a significant cost savings in the United States, saving US battery manufactures VAT and associated import costs. Lower processing temperatures substantially reduce production costs and carbon emissions.
