Altris acknowledged as one of Sweden’s most innovative tech startups
For the third year in a row, Altris has been named in Ny Teknik’s prestigious 33-listan as a 'golden company'. The annual award from the Swedish magazine acknowledges the 33 best and most innovative tech companies in Sweden — those with the potential to revolutionise their industries both in Sweden, and around the world.
NyTeknik writes: Altris manufactures cathode materials for sodium-ion batteries, using a cheaper method originally invented at Uppsala University. Sodium-ion technology is a challenger to lithium-ion technology, as it has a lower environmental footprint. The company has also broadened and now also licenses sodium-ion battery designs.
For the 14th consecutive year, Ny Teknik has highlighted Sweden’s 33 most promising young tech companies that have the greatest chance to become leaders in their respective fields. Companies are only included in the list if they are seen to be contributing to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals. Many companies are evaluated each year — with only the likes of Altris, Heart Aerospace, and Peafowl Plasmonics, to name a few, making the final list in 2022.
Companies making this year’s list work with a range of technical solutions, from autonomous rescue drones, to wooden modular wind turbines, to microplastic filters for washing machines. All 33 companies have one thing in common though: they were formed around their own technical innovation and have the potential to reach an international market
