ION POWER CORPORATION: DEVELOPMENT OF HIGH ENERGY LI-S CELLS FOR ELECTRIC VEHICLE APPLICATIONS

Point of Contact Dr. John Affinito

Sion Power Corporation will develop an ultra-high energy lithium-sulfur battery able to power electric vehicles more than 300 miles between charges, with an energy density of 500 watt hours per kilogram that is three times that of current lithium-ion batteries. While the high energy potential of lithium-sulfur is well known, Sion Power’s proprietary strategy, focusing on a manufacturable approach to lithium anode protection and employing six different physical barrier layers, highly differentiates Sion’s approach from all other lithium-sulfur efforts. These strategies directly address cycle life and safety while also allowing higher energies. If successful, this project will clearly assert U.S. technology and commercialization leadership in ultra-high energy batteries for electrified vehicles.
