Addionics, a battery technology start-up, is launching a new state-of-the-art, pilot line for manufacturing of its advanced Smart 3D Electrodes™ for electric vehicle batteries. Accordingly, the company will expand its technological developments primarily for the automotive industry, which includes global leading automakers and tier 1 suppliers.
Inaugurated in February 2023, the new site covers over 1,500 sq. meters and will serve as the company’s headquarters. In addition, the company has locations in United States, United Kingdom, and Germany.
The new site includes office space for over 50 employees and advanced laboratories. Furthermore, it installs a pilot line dedicated to accelerating the development and production of its chemistry-agnostic Smart 3D Electrodes™ technology. Moreover, their utilization is to improve all key performance metrics for batteries including energy density, power, safety, and extending lifetime – all without increasing cost.
The company is already working with top global companies to integrate its product to match the ever-rising global battery demand driven by the growing EV market. The new facility has the capacity to produce up to 1MWh and will increase to about 100MWh by the end of 2024. Addionics expects to reach 1 GWh production capability during 2025.
Addionics, recently selected as a 2022 Pioneer by Bloomberg New Energy Finance (BNEF) for its technology’s potential to accelerate global decarbonization and halt climate change. Moreover, has innovated an advanced 3D design for electrodes that is compatible with any battery chemistry, existing or emerging.
The 3D structure leads to improvements in key battery performance metrics. Addionics’ patented core IP is a cost-effective and scalable battery-grade electrode fabrication process, which significantly lowers costs. The company’s AI-based, drop-in technology complements production. It seamlessly integrates into any existing assembly line, allowing battery makers to reduce production costs while increasing manufacturing capacity.
Dr. Moshiel Biton, Addionics Co-Founder and CEO: “The launch of our facility is a major milestone in commercializing Addionics’ technology and expanding our supply to our worldwide clients and partners. Together with our investors and strategic partners, Addionics is on the path to mass production which will accelerate the EV revolution.”
In addition, Biton said, “Companies have tried to integrate 3D electrode architecture but did not have the technology. The commercialization of Silicon, Solid-State and advanced Li-Ion technologies will be significantly accelerated with the adoption of smarter designs. By Smart 3D Electrodes™. With our novel manufacturing process, we allow this transition.”
