Nexeon adds ‘Spice’ to silicon tech research

UK-based battery materials firm Nexeon is leading a project to optimise coating technology for its silicon material to boost the performance of battery cells.

Nexeon said the ‘Spice’ (Silicon Product Improvement through Coating Enhancement) project aims to extend the system compatibility of silicon anode materials, “allowing use of lower cost electrolyte formulations and lower overall battery cell costs”.

Nexeon wins EV battery research funding

UK-based battery materials firm Nexeon has been awarded GBP7million ($9.5m) to support research into silicon-based materials to increase the safety and range of batteries for electric vehicles.

Nexeon said the support from the government’s Innovate UK agency will support its work with partners on a project called ‘SUNRISE’ to develop improved materials, based on silicon as a replacement for carbon in the lithium-ion battery anode and optimising cell designs for automotive application.
