AnteoTech (ADO) has had its lithium-ion battery (LIB) binder reinforcement technology, AnteoX, validated through testwork by two international battery companies.
ADO said the results of independent evaluations from the two companies confirmed the performance-enhancing properties of AnteoX, which is designed to be an additive for LIB binders to help increase the capacity, extend the life cycle, and boost the mechanical properties of the batteries.
One of the companies that validated the ADO technology was Enax, a LIB developer, and the other was an unnamed global battery manufacturer.
The tests mean AnteoX has now passed first-stage evaluation and validation by the battery manufacturer, and ADO said the tech demonstrated performance improvements at existing commercial binder levels.
Anteotech’s Head of Energy, Manuel Wieser, said the validation from two “respected battery companies” was an important milestone for the company.
“Whilst there is further development and validation work to be done with both companies, the energy team is very pleased with the results to date,” Mr Wieser said.
“These collaborations are ongoing, and we would like to thank both parties for their roles in our technology development to this point.”
Enax evaluated AnteoX in its high-energy silicon anode reference design that is currently under development for a high-performance application.
The results demonstrated a substantial uplift in electrochemical performance as well as the opportunity to reduce inactive material and increase active material, thereby creating a higher energy density anode.
AnteoTech said the ability to minimise binder content and increase active material, while enhancing cell performance, was of “fundamental” value to battery makers as it could reduce costs per watt-hour in manufacturing.
Enax will continue to evaluate the performance of AnteoX in additional and more extensive trials.
Meanwhile, the unnamed battery manufacturer found AnteoX provided a “clear benefit” across the separate binder formulations. AnteoTech and the manufacturer are now looking to move forward with another round of testing.
Shares in Anteotech were up 6.25 per cent and trading at 8.5 cents at midday AEST.
