Bulgarian lead-acid company Monbat has confirmed proposals for a major expansion of its manufacturing operations in the country to produce bipolar batteries under licence from US-based Advanced Battery Concepts (ABC).

Monbat’s licensing deal for ABC’s GreenSeal bipolar lead technology was announced earlier this year— but neither company would say where the batteries might be made.

However, BEST Battery Briefing has now confirmed Monbat has taken the first steps towards building a 2.4 gigawatt-hour plant in Vratsa, Bulgaria, especially for the production of bipolar batteries.

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.
