Altris - We enable the next generation of batteries | News
Altris is a Swedish company who has discovered a new way to produce a sodium based cathode material using only renewable materials. This world-changing discovery enables a new generation of batteries that are not only friendly to the environment but also cheaper to produce than it’s competitors.

A collaboration between Altris and LiFeSiZE has been granted funding for up to two years from Vinnova. The project, titled “Production of up-scaled Na-ion battery prototypes using a novel cathode material” aims to scale up material production to supply LiFeSiZE with enough material to produce casted electrodes. The ultimate aim of the project is to produce a full cell Na battery prototype and evaluate the cells for commercialization. This project will represent a significant step for Altris as it will be the first step towards reaching the battery market. Access to the casting and battery production equipment at LiFeSiZE will enable rapid progression towards a prototype to demonstrate the market feasibility of Prussian White and Prussian Blue in non-aqueous batteries. The project marks the beginning of continued collaborations with LiFeSiZE with other projects in planning and several Altris employees working out of the LiFeSiZE facilities.

Tim Nordh, CEO of Altris, has come in second place in the Innovation Race at the 2018 Power Circle summit, which took place in Stockholm on the 23-24th of April. The event was the third and final round in a series of pitch competitions focused on the theme “Paradigm shift in the energy market”. The Innovation Race competition is held each year by InnoEnergy together with Energimyndigheten enabling 10 startups to pitch their idea. In 200s each company had to convince an audience of their business potential, innovation height and contribution to a sustainable system. The three finalists of an audience vote are then placed by a jury vote. The 50 000kr prize money will be put to good use in aiding the financing of an upscaled reactor to boost Altris’s production capacity.
