#FounderFriday - Addionics | Creating the next generation of batteries with smart 3D metal architect
Addionics is creating the next generation of energy storage by focussing on battery physics and are enabling higher energy density, lower charging time, and improved heat safety, with the largest markets in mind.
7 years ago, the Addionics team started investigating the cause of hazardous explosions in batteries, such as those in the Samsung Note 7, as part of their academic research. They were some of the first researchers to explore this in real-time and learned how this phenomenon could be harnessed and used for their benefit. They realized the impact and potential of this technology and how it could change the world of energy storage.
In 2018, they understood how they could create a larger impact on the world by starting a company focussed on this mission, and Addionics was born.
Addionics is developing a new technology that will transform the way we store and deliver energy with a positive effect on the environment. They provide specialized improved rechargeable batteries by redesigning their architecture. With their patent-protected scalable 3D metal fabrication method, they are able to enhance performance, mileage, safety, charging time and cost of batteries. Their solution is also software-based—they use an AI algorithm to optimize the best structures according to application specification.
Addionics’ novel smart 3D structure minimizes the internal resistance and improves mechanical longevity, thermal stability and other fundamental limitations and degradation factors in standard batteries. This process results in a significant step-change in the performance of all key battery characteristics simultaneously and enables a cheaper cost of ownership.
You can learn more about Addionics’ technology in their newly released article about how their smart 3D battery electrodes technology offers improved Electric Vehicles batteries. But it's not only cars. The future is an all-battery-powered product that can live longer and so generate less waste. Their technology can support the creation of a better environment on a more sustainable planet.
INAM got to know the team during the Open Innovation Challenge for Innovative Battery Technologies. INAM organizes and hosts Open Innovation Challenges for our members and other interested parties who are looking to expand their innovative potential. Addionics showed high innovative potential with their battery technology and we at INAM are happy to welcome them as our newest member.
At the moment, the team is looking for business partners companies, that would like to create a joint development proof of concept with them in order to get early access to the technology and achieve better performances to their battery-powered product.
