USA: US start-up aims to revolutionise lithium-ion batteries

Prieto Battery, a spin-out from Colorado State University, is on a mission to create lithium-ion batteries that are up to 1,000 times more powerful, 10 times longer lasting and more energy efficient than batteries that are currently available.

The start-up, which spun out of Colorado State’s clean energy commercialisation facility Cenergy in 2010, has raised US$5.5m of a planned US$6.8m funding round, according to a filing in the US.

The battery technology is the brainchild of Amy Prieto, an assistant chemistry professor in the university’s College of Natural Sciences.
