Powering tomorrow, and beyond
As we transition to a sustainable energy society, there just aren’t enough readily available raw materials – particularly refined lithium, cobalt, and nickel to produce all the batteries we need, in time. The search for other suitable battery chemistries and raw materials to fill out the shortfall turned up sodium-ion, as next best - and as it turns out, in many cases an even better option
The holy trinity. Performance, safety and sustainability
Altris’ sodium ion batteries have outstanding performance in terms of longer life, more flexible working temperatures, and safety. They have an energy density on par with the most widely used lithium ion chemistry LFP, plus very similar development and production equipment and processes
Sodium-ion batteries are inherently sustainable and easy to recycle, made from salt, wood, iron, and air. The materials used are abundant and available in Europe – free from conflict minerals and toxic elements.
Prussian White is a stable framework material with large pores making it highly suitable for the capture and storage of sodium ions. Altris has developed a method to produce Prussian White in a form ideal for use as a positive electrode material in sodium ion batteries. Our patented low temperature and pressure synthesis route, in a fully-sodiated form offers a competitive and sustainable alternative without sacrificing performance.
Our patented NaBOB electrolyte is inherently fire resistant - it’s actually a fire retardant. Paired with Altris Prussian White they complement each other to improve performance and at the same time deliver the safest battery available.
