California Lithium Battery (CalBattery) were selected as a 2013 TechConnect National Innovation awardee for the development of its breakthrough, very-high specific capacity Lithium-ion silicon-graphene (SiGr) composite anode material. The TechConnect award committee selects the top early-stage innovations from hundreds of technologies from all over the world, and rankings are based on the potential positive impact the technology will have on a specific industry sector.
California Lithium Battery (CalBattery) recently signed a licensing agreement with the US Department of Energy’s Argonne National Laboratory to commercialize their silicon-graphene composite anode material (called GEN3). CalBattery and Argonne has been working together for over a year under a Work for Others agreement to develop this technology. Back in October 2012 CalBattery said that in independent full cell tests, the material shows unrivaled performance characteristics.
