Breakthrough Process to Manufacture Very Low-cost LFP Cathode for Li-ion Batteries
08/08/2022 - 08/07/2024
Project Innovation + Advantages:
Sylvatex will use a low-cost, high-yield, and simplified continuous approach to synthesize lithium iron phosphate iron (LFP) based cathode materials for lithium-ion batteries (LIBs) where the reactants flow and mix continuously. Sylvatex’s proprietary nanomaterial platform has already demonstrated a significant breakthrough in synthesizing cathode materials for LIBs. This project will demonstrate the feasibility of producing LFP-based materials with a controlled continuous approach which could reduce energy consumption by 80%, waste by 60%, and cost by 60% relative to the incumbent commercial process. The performance of the cathode materials will be validated in two common LIB design types.
