BESSTECH has developed a way to fundamentally improve lithium‐ion batteries: a silicon‐based anode technology that provides four times the energy capacity of carbon anodes, with charging rates as low as six minutes and a lifetime of more than 1000 charge/discharge cycles.
The company’s manufacturing process allows it to produce an anode ready to be integrated into batteries in less than two hours, reducing overhead and manufacturing costs when compared to current anode manufacturing, which can take 2‐3 weeks. The company’s technology also eliminates the use of solvents, carbon, and binders, which add cost and can sometimes be harmful to the environment.
