Hybrid Electrolytes for Group II Cation Based Batteries

Hybrid Battery System with a lower environmental impact, improved safety, and improved volumetric energy density relative to lead based and lithium ion based battery systems. Background: Lithium ion batteries and lead acid batteries are used as benchmark systems. Variation in the cost of specific batteries is dependent on factors such as design, manufacturing process and number of units. Technology Overview: Dr. Kenneth Takeuchi, Distinguished Professor at Stony Brook University invented a new hybrid electrolyte system enabling development of naturally abundant, low cost materials with minimal environmental impact. The batteries described are based on alternative technologies to lithium ion batteries which are currently in widespread use. The gravimetric energy density of the final group II cation battery is anticipated to be somewhat lower than lithium ion batteries but will be significantly higher than lead batteries. However the new battery technology will have a lower environmental impact than the based systems, improved safety relative to lithium ion systems, and improved volumetric energy density relative to both systems. Advantages: Magnesium is 12 to 23 times cheaper than lithium. The energy density of magnesium based batteries is 3.4 times higher than lithium ion batteries and 8.5 times higher than lead Reduced flammability and low volatility Applications: Hybrid Battery Systems Intellectual Property Summary: PCT filed Stage of Development: Licensing Potential: We seek to develop and commercialize, by an exclusive or non-exclusive license agreement and/or sponsored research, with a company active in the area.
