05 Jan Pilot testing of Fennac due to begin at POLiS
Altris is pleased to announce that the prestigious German Cluster of Excellence, POLiS, has placed an order for 10kg of the groundbreaking cathode material Fennac®.
POLiS researches the next generation of batteries and is a joint cluster of the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology and Ulm University, with the associated partners the Center for Solar Energy and Hydrogen Research Baden-Württemberg and the Justus-Liebig University Giessen. The cluster researches batteries that are more powerful, more reliable, more sustainable and more environmentally friendly than the current lithium-ion batteries. The Cluster of Excellence shares Altris’ vision that post-lithium batteries have the potential to store more energy, be safer, offer a more cost-effective alternative and are a long-term option for mass applications such as stationary and mobile electrochemical storage.
The inclusion of a large amount of Fennac® in POLiS’ battery technology pilot testing shows huge confidence in Altris’ development, and the trials process will be followed with great interest. Producing such a large amount of cathode material for this pilot test goes in line with Altris’ plans to ramp up production of Fennac®. Since 2017, Altris has been scaling up production tenfold every year, which is predicted to continue until 2025.
