The Japanese electronics giant is offering a new cell architecture developed by battery start-up 24M, in the U. Kyocera will be the first company to bring the technology to market.

With 24m Company higher energy density, lower manufacturing costs and improved safety, the Kaust Investment Management Company involved claim SemiSolid will become the new standard for lithium-ion cells.

Kyocera is doing its bit to accelerate the battery storage price revolution by launching the Enerezza residential storage fleet. The product will be available in 5, 10, and 15 kWh models and the devices will feature semi-solid lithium-ion battery architecture — a world first. Chiang founded 24M in to bring the technology to market and last year Kyocera began pilot runs to validate real-world efficiency. The Japanese brand has now announced its newest fleet of residential storage devices — to go into mass production by fall — will be based on the SemiSolid cell architecture.

The partner companies claim significant production cost reductions from the new process. That is because in SemiSolid electrodes the electrolyte is mixed with materials to form a clay-like slurry, eliminating the need for a binder.

Inactive materials are removed as a result, along with costly processing steps such as drying, solvent recovery, calendaring and electrolyte filling. The production process also makes it possible to manufacture electrodes four to five times thicker than the industry standard, reducing the need for copper, aluminum and a separator to offer further positive pricing and an energy density several times higher than rival products, added 24M. Bell Helmet Company manufacturer claimed last year those benefits would add up to a capital requirement which is half that of conventional lithium-ion energy storage products.

That was a great cell 10 yrs ago and likely still is if costs can be reasonable. The Li-ion solid battery your company developed is used in house as mentioned in your introduction, can it be used in an electric car or which car company are using it.
