The electric cars of the future could have a battery made up of non-flammable inorganic electrolytes and with greater autonomy.
Innolith AG is a Swiss company that is developing the first 1000 Wh / kg rechargeable battery. The tests are being carried out in Germany.
Non-flammable inorganic electrolyte.
Conventional electric car batteries use a flammable organic electrolyte. But Innolith batteries are made with a non-flammable inorganic electrolyte. This fact eliminates the probability that it will catch fire.
The company takes an innovative conversion approach in battery chemistry to generate high energy density in each cell. It is achieved through the conversion reaction materials.
The organic materials were supplied with saline materials. All materials are inexpensive, making it competitive in terms of price. Its development was launched in 2018 and has made important progress.
The absence of organic materials, a key aspect of Innolith battery technology, eliminates the critical source of safety risk and chemical instability from high-energy batteries.
Innolith maintains commercial confidentiality on the mechanism of cell chemistry.
Innolith already has experience in non-flammable inorganic rechargeable batteries. The first pilot was implemented on the PJM Interconnection network in the United States to provide fast frequency regulation services.
The company coordinates the transportation of electricity in Delaware, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Maryland, Michigan, New Jersey, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Virginia, West Virginia and the District of Columbia.
The chemistry used in this battery has been found to operate for more than 55,000 full discharge cycles, which is 10-100 times the maximum number of cycles for lithium-ion batteries in use today.
