Oxis Energy sealing battery R&D partnership with Ceetak

Mon, 02/11/2019 - 00:00 -- John Shepherd

Lithium-sulfur cells maker Oxis Energy has teamed up with heat-sealing technology firm Ceetak for an R&D project under the UK’s Faraday Battery Challenge.

Oxis is leading the £7 million (US$9.1m) Lithium Sulfur Future Automotive (LiSFAB) development project— funded by Innovate UK— to develop a next generation battery cell and module that will have “the significantly improved power and cycle life required by larger automotive applications”.

Ceetak said it is working with Oxis on developing “a specific test station to evaluate the different technologies to achieve the most robust and suitable pouch sealing process” for future battery cell production.

Lithium-sulphur industry urged to share research to advance technology

The lithium-sulphur industry should unite and share research to advance the technology to the point where it can be commercialised.

The comments were made during the Oxis-organised Lithium-Sulphur Batteries: Mechanisms, Modelling and Materials event in London, UK last week.

Battery manufacturer Oxis Energy has developed a lightweight lithium sulphur prototype cell for power management company Lincad and the UK Ministry of Defence.

The prototype cell is the result of the third programme phase of the Defence Science and Technology Laboratory research programme.  The cell provides a 60% increase over the capacity achievement in phase 2 in 2013 and increases the specific energy of a cell to just under 300Wh/kg, according to Oxis Energy.

Oxis li-ion sulphur batteries

Britain’s Oxis Energy, in conjunction with compatriot MSP Technologies, is to market lithium sulphur battery packs for marine applications in spring 2015.

Launched as part of MSP Technologies’ Ghost-Power range of diesel/battery hybrid power systems for motor boats, Oxis Energy’s lithium sulphur packs will be scalable from 20 kWh to 50 kWh upwards. The battery will be designed for Lloyd's Register approval, which Oxis Energy claims will give safety assurance to customers while helping to lower insurance premiums.

Polymer lithium-sulphur battery for commercialisation by OXIS and GP Batteries

Thu, 01/31/2013 - 17:36 -- Ruth Williams

OXIS Energy, UK, and GP Batteries, of Singapore, are embarking on a joint manufacturing project to make lithium-sulphur (Li-S) battery systems on a commercial scale for use in defence, automotive and solar panel markets.

The joint venture is expected to accelerate the Li-S cells and battery system to a commercial scale, as made by OXIS and mass produced by GP Batteries. OXIS has been developing the Li-S batteries since 2004 for the broad electric vehicle market as well as aviation and defence applications.

"Lithium-sulphur polymer batteries could well be the long sought after technology which will correct many of the deficiencies and shortcomings of the present generation of lithium-ion batteries, such as safety", said GP Batteries Chairman and Chief Executive Andrew Ng.

OXIS and GP Batteries are establishing a joint board to review the developments and improvements in the emerging technology for presentation to customers.
