EnerG2 development boost Li-ion batteries

EnerG2 has announced that it is producing nano-structured hard carbon for use in lithium-ion batteries (Li-ion). Production is designed to boost anode capacity in the batteries by more than 50 percent.

The company has also extended this production innovation into a range of carbon-silicon, nano-composite materials that improve battery capacity, cycle life and charge efficiency.

These materials are used in numerous applications including consumer electronics and electric vehicles.

“We have broken through a critical performance barrier. The Li-ion batteries dominate innovation in the energy storage industry,” said Aaron Feaver, a co-founder of EnerG2. “This is a ground-breaking new product for this segment of the industry.”

The Li-ion-produced anodes enhance storage capacity of the finished electrodes, which offer a higher reversible lithium capacity than other anode material, according to Feaver. They also increase storage capacity and improve the charge, discharge rate.

EnerG2 is headquartered in Seattle. The Albany plant, which opened just over a year ago in a 74,000-square-foot former Oregon Freeze Dry warehouse, is the only facility in the world producing commercial-scale nano-engineered carbon material for energy storage applications.
