Graphene nanoplatelets used to make battery anode with four times the capacity available now at commercial scale

XG Sciences has launched a new generation of anode materials for lithium-ion batteries (LIB) with four times the capacity of conventional anodes. The new anode material is produced through proprietary manufacturing processes and uses the Company’s xGnP® graphene nanoplatelets to stabilize silicon particles in a nano-engineered composite structure. The material displays dramatically improved charge storage capacity with good cycle life and high efficiencies.

The graphene battery anodes are available immediately at commercial scale.

The exact performance of the new anode materials will depend on the specific battery formulations used by the cell manufacturer, noting that XGS has demonstrated capacity of 1500 mAh/g with low irreversible capacity loss and stable cycling performance in life tests.
