The safest and most competitive solid-state battery
A major roadblock in the race to phase out fossil fuels is that lithium batteries currently do not meet customers’ requirements in ensuring a complete transition in mobility and energy applications.
A new generation of solid polymer composite and semi-solid electrolytes has resulted from a decade of research by Prof. Michel Armand, one of the fathers of modern lithium battery development. The research team led by Professor Armand has been able to improve the composite polymer electrolytes (technology he discovered in 1978) and solve the main solid-state battery challenges. This unique technology brings lithium batteries beyond the state of the art in cost, safety and energy density.
