Berlin, Germany (21 September 2020)—INAM, the Innovation Network for Advanced Materials, is pleased to announce Addionics as their newest startup member.
INAM is a global network of companies and research institutes in the field of Advanced Materials. Their mission is to support innovative ideas, products and processes in the field of Advanced Materials with the aim to accelerate the global market entry of technology innovations by providing access to infrastructure and collaboration between corporates, startups and research institutions.
“Addionics is working on the next generation of rechargeable batteries and the part we find most exciting is that they use smart 3D structures to increase performance,” said Managing Director of INAM, Antonia Caraveteanu. “The team is great to work with and we aim to support them in their mission to revolutionise the battery & energy storage world.”
Seven 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. While most companies try to improve batteries by focusing on the chemistry - Addionics focuses on the physics. This allows them to achieve significant improvement in battery performance for any battery chemistry. 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.
“The German market is a huge opportunity as it is the most compatible one for Israeli startups,” said Gilad Fisher, the company’s Director of Business Development and Marketing. “German companies are the best at hardware engineering and also number one in manufacturing. On the other hand, Israeli startups are great in Innovation and know how to move fast. Together we can create really unique and high-quality products.”
INAM was introduced to the team during an Open Innovation Challenge for Innovative Battery Technologies. INAM organizes and hosts Open Innovation Challenges for members of the network and other interested parties who are looking to expand their innovative potential.
In the next year, INAM plans to help Addionics search for business partners in the German market that would like to create a joint development proof of concept with them. The team is eager to get early access to the technology and achieve better performances to their battery-powered product.
