Just recently, The United States Advanced Battery Consortium (USABC), a collaborative organization is Ford Motor Company, FCA US, and General Motors, has granted a $4m contract to SiNode Systems in Chicago, Illinois, for the development of cutting-edge anode materials for automotive Li-ion battery applications.
The 30-month program will focus on the development of silicon-graphene high-energy anode material suited for vehicle applications, and the development and scale up of pouch cells that show anode performance metrics surpass the minimum USABC targets for active materials development for electric vehicles.
In a statement, SiNode Systems co-founder and CEO Samir Mayekar, says that they are honored to be a recipient of the grant and is proud to contribute to USABC’s battery technology research and development programs. He believes that their advanced anode materials technology will be an enabler in enhancing the performance and reducing the cost of advanced batteries for vehicle electrification.
