Pointers at Glance
- Addionics, a startup specializing in battery technology, has recently inaugurated a cutting-edge pilot line to manufacture its advanced Smart 3D Electrodes™ for electric vehicle batteries.
- The company has received support from partners to further develop its technology, primarily for the automotive industry, including global automakers and top-tier suppliers.
The newly opened facility and its existing locations in the US, UK, and Germany will serve as the company’s headquarters.
Launching this new facility is a significant step in Addionics’ efforts to commercialize its technology and expand its supply to clients and partners worldwide.
The company’s AI-based technology is designed for seamless integration into existing assembly lines, enabling battery manufacturers to reduce production costs while increasing manufacturing capacity. By adopting smarter designs, the commercialization of Silicon, Solid-State, and advanced Li-Ion technologies will be significantly accelerated.
Spanning over 1,500 square meters, the new site boasts advanced laboratories, office space for over 50 employees, and a pilot line dedicated to the development and production acceleration of Addionics’ chemistry-agnostic Smart 3D Electrodes™ technology. This cutting-edge technology improves all major battery performance metrics, including energy density, power, safety, and lifetime extension, while maintaining cost-effectiveness.
Increase In Production Capacity
Already working with top global companies, Addionics is integrating its product to meet the growing demand for batteries driven by the increasing popularity of electric vehicles.
By 2024, with the ability to produce up to 1MWh, the new facility is expected to increase production capacity to nearly 100MWh. By 2025, Addionics anticipates reaching a production capability of 1 GWh.
Addionics pioneering technology was recognized by Bloomberg New Energy Finance (BNEF), selecting the company as a 2022 Pioneer for its potential to hasten global decarbonization and mitigate climate change.
The company’s patented core intellectual property involves a cost-effective and scalable battery-grade electrode fabrication process that significantly reduces production costs. The 3D structure of the electrode leads to signoficant improvements in key battery performance metrics.
