Building a better battery at scale

We harness the power of nature to form an electrified tomorrow.

Taking charge since 2015

Our journey began in 2015 when Ronnie Mogensen, a master’s student at the Ångström Advanced Battery Centre at Uppsala University, came across an enlightening study on sodium-ion batteries by the renowned scientist and Nobel laureate, John B. Goodenough. In search of a cathode for his master’s degree experiments, Ronnie teamed up with his supervisor, Associate Professor Reza Younesi, and material chemistry expert, Associate Professor William Brant. Together, they innovated their first Prussian White process.

Our Founding

By 2017, the trio founded Altris, an embodiment of their commitment to commercialize Prussian White development and sodium-ion battery technology. The journey had just begun.

Our Growth

Our growth has been fueled by strategic partnerships and financial backing from key players. This included investments from InnoEnergy, Molindo, and Northvolt, with SEK 100 million A-round funding in 2022, followed by a SEK 50 million bridge-round in 2023 among existing owners and employees.

Backed by leading investors
