BCI launch for bipolar tech industry alliance

An industry-wide alliance to improve the competitiveness of lead batteries using bipolar technology is to be formally launched this week.

Advanced Battery Concepts’ (ABC) GreenSeal Alliance— backed by multiple equipment and materials suppliers— will be launched during the Battery Council International convention in New Orleans.

ABC’s CEO and founder Dr Ed Shaffer (pictured) said the alliance represented “the first and broadest collaboration of its kind in the lead battery industry”.

ABC captures US military battery R&D contract

Advanced Battery Concepts (ABC) has secured a contract that paves the way for it to supply batteries based on its bipolar 'GreenSeal' lead-acid technology to the US Army.

Michigan-based ABC said it has been awarded a $689,000 cost plus fixed fee contract to provide 4HN and 2HN batteries to the US Army Tank Automotive Research Development and Engineering Center (TARDEC).

Hat trick license agreement for ABC

Hat trick license agreement for ABC

Advanced Battery Concepts (ABC) has won a third licence for its bipolar 'GreenSeal' lead-acid technology. The licensee, announced last week, is Trojan Battery, one of the global leaders in deep cycle lead–acid batteries, essentially applied in traction roles, such as forklift trucks and golf cars.

The move by Trojan has to be seen as a major breakthrough for ABC since it is clear recognition of the technology’s benefits of reducing weight, increasing cycle life and increasing power density. To date, there are no other improvements for deep cycle lead acid batteries that can achieve this. Furthermore this sector is seeing challenges from fuel cells and from large format lithium ion.

Clarke buys Ebonex for a song — but why?

Steve Clarke, founder of Aquametals, didn’t buy his father’s old company, Ebonex, out of sentimentality last week.

Aquametals, the recent start up in non-conventional lead-acid battery recycling, acquired UK-based Ebonex IPR Limited for 123,776 shares of Aquametals common stock and $100,000 in cash — or a “song”*, Clarke told BBB.

Energy Power Systems

Michigan-based Energy Power Systems (EPS) is to begin production of ‘quasi-bipolar’ lead-acid battery packs in the third quarter of 2015, BEST understands.

EPS is developing a ‘quasi-bipolar’ 12V lead-acid battery pack with multiple-stacked, thin plates designed for use in micro- and mild-hybrid cars. EPS will build a 100,000 square feet facility in Auburn Hills, Michigan, a spokesman for EPS told BEST, adding the battery would “reinvent” lead-acid batteries.
