January 2021:

According to a recent article published on the popular German website ‘Home and smart’, batteries based on Altris’ Fennac® compound are significantly more environmentally friendly, as neither lithium, nickel or cobalt are used. This means that the supply chain is much more stable. In addition to the iron used in Fennac®, the original sources of the other substances are air, sea water and wood and are therefore much more sustainable. The article concludes that companies like Altris can offer an alternative solution to lithium-ion batteries that promises significantly more sustainability.

June 2020:

Today Dr Ronnie Mogensen successfully defended his PhD thesis titled “Realization of Sodium-ion Batteries: From Electrode to Electrolyte Materials” against the opponent Prof. Kang Xu Adelphi Laboratory Center (ALC), Army Research Laboratory.

Ronnie started his PhD in late 2015 and over the past four and a half years has managed to publish 12 papers, two patents, helped to found Altris and produce his final PhD thesis. The thesis covers all things sodium ion batteries, from the development of a reliable positive electrode material (Prussian white), to analysis of interphase formation on the negative electrode and finally development of new non-flammable functional electrolytes for sodium ion batteries. The work in the thesis forms a significant contribution to the field and will inform future research for years to come.

Ronnie will continue working on developing the electrolyte for sodium ion batteries while also officially joining the Altris team from the 1stof July. He will be working to help further improve our production process while boosting material performance.

Congratulations Ronnie and welcome officially to the Altris team!

June 2020:

ALTRIS & Graphmatech, two Swedish deep tech companies who began as spin-offs from Uppsala University, are joining forces to realize the full potential of Na-ion batteries as a cleaner, safer & more sustainable future battery solution.

Together with the world-leading battery research group at the University where their journeys began, they will embark on a new SIO Grafen project, aiming to push the energy density & performance of Na-ion batteries to the next level, using Aros Graphene technology and Fennac cathode material to enhance their competitive edge in the commercial market.

May 2020:

9 Million SEK has been granted from Swedish Energy Agency to scale up production of Altris cathode material Fennac and to demonstrate the next generation of battery based on only abundant elements.

-Batteries that are based on easily accessible and durable raw materials are one of the keys to the transformation of the transport and energy systems. The project is an important step towards the market for long-term sustainable batteries, says Greger Ledung at the Swedish Energy Agency, an expert in battery research.

Here is the Swedish Energy Agency own press-release.

April 2020: 

Batteries with Altris non flammable electrolyte will be tested together with Save by Solar and Scania. LiFeSiZE and Uppsala University is developing and manufacturing the battery cell.
