The provisional patent application was filed
Coretec’s team of scientists have developed three distinct and novel methodologies for minimizing pulverization and increasing rate capability by creating an artificial SEI layer around the silicon nanoparticle. Data supports the claims outlined in the patent filing and indicate that Endurion batteries utilizing this proprietary SEI layer are capable of extending the life of silicon-based anodes and enable improved silicon loadings in lithium-ion batteries for more energy density.
‘This provisional patent is intended to protect a process that we believe is unique and possesses significant impact potential in the development of our Endurion Battery program, and battery R&D in general,’ said
The Endurion program’s strategies are focused on creating artificial SEI layers with customized surface chemistries that provide enhanced pathways for lithium-ion and electronic conduction, while limiting pulverization. Using limited synthetic steps, these methodologies should have achievable manufacturing scalability, helping bring these technologies to commercialization. Altogether, Endurion’s approach in this provisional patent could bring about battery development methods that may yield improved silicon anodes for both lithium-ion and solid-state batteries.
‘This patent filing is a major step forward in our Endurion battery program. Our unique approach to an artificial SEI is poised to deliver groundbreaking results, advancing silicon anode technology and making next-generation silicon-based anodes commercially viable,’ said Dr.
