Californian firm PATHION is offering two international sub-licenses for its Lithium Rich Anti-Perovskite (LiRAP™) solid state electrolyte.
Pathion acquired exclusive worldwide rights of the technology/IP from Los Alamos National Security, a part of Los Alamos National Laboratories.
These rights include access to the underlying research and exclusivity for commercial development, manufacture, use, and sale of the technology, as well as the right to sub-license.
When the solid-state nonflammable electrolyte material is used as a binder of cathodes and as an electrolyte in lithium battery cells, it can potentially quadruple energy density, say the firm.
The company is currently engaged, and in negotiation with, two global battery manufacturers for the licenses to accelerate commercialisation of their non-flammable, high energy density batteries.
