EFFICIENT BATTERIES FOR A
explore our products' consumer applications
The largest obstacles in the path of widespread renewable energy utilization are the inherent fire safety risk and high cost posed by prevailing lithium-ion battery technologies. Natrion’s advances in solid-state lithium-ion and sodium-ion battery chemistries are poised to finally overcome these obstacles.
Natrion sets itself apart from other solid-state battery companies with its new ceramic-polymer composite electrolyte. Rather than using a pure ceramic or pure polymer material (as is common industry practice), Natrion combines both types of materials to blend their best properties and none of their worst. Natrion is thus able to hybridize the high performance of a ceramic material with the flexibility, durability, and other favorable mechanical characteristics of a polymer. Specifically, Natrion uses a proprietary new ceramic with a single precursor material that is already being utilized in the paper and cosmetics industries. Paired with a polymer that’s often employed as building fire insulation, and Natrion is able to make a composite of high cost efficiency and thermal resiliency.
Called LISIC, or Lithium Solid Ionic Conductor, Natrion’s new solid electrolyte product is a plug-and-play component that battery manufacturers will be able to implement on their assembly lines as soon as 2022. LISIC is resistant to temperatures in excess of 600°F while being stable against Li-metal and other emerging high capacity anode materials. Most compellingly, however, is that with minimal compositional modification LISIC can be integrated into solid-state sodium-ion batteries. Natrion hopes to launch a solid-state sodium-ion battery as soon as 2023 that would possess all of the safety improvements of LISIC while cutting production costs by 40% as compared to lithium-ion batteries.
explore our products' military applications
Natrion’s patented solid-state battery technology opens the doors to the next generation of battery-enabled warfighting. For the first time in history, soldiers will have access to man-portable, subdivisable, decentralized, and safe power. Taking advantage of our core solid electrolyte technology’s superb chemical stability, our engineers and researchers are currently designing a whole suite of battery products to radically change the role and ability of electric power in defense applications.
Our new defense battery packs will not only allow military forces to shed their reliance on petroleum-based means of power generation, but will also facilitate a revolution in power distribution. No more generator maintenance, no more hauling fuel, no more sandbagging to reduce noise and EM radiation, no more laying conduit, and no more centralized power; our proposed line of battery products splits power storage/generation into subdivisible battery modules, ready to power soldiers, vehicles, and habitations alike.
