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.
