Enerize and FiFe Batteries have announced a partnership to develop safe, low-cost, high-energy Li-ion rechargeable batteries for various applications including hybrid-electric vehicles (HEV). These batteries will feature advanced electrode materials based on new types of TiO2 used by FiFe Batteries, as well as high conductivity/high tap density MnO2 and low cost modified natural graphite developed by Enerize Corporation.

In combination, these new materials have the potential to deliver significantly improved durability, reduced self discharge and lower cost than conventional Li-ion batteries.

The new materials will be complemented by other proprietary Li-ion technologies developed by Enerize Corporation and FiFe Batteries, including electrolyte additives for increased cycling stability and new electrode coating process that will allow the batteries to deliver more power on demand. During manufacture, new nondestructive test systems from Enerize will be used for quality control. Enerize nondestructive methods and systems can also be applied for real-time in-line quality control at the facilities of other battery manufacturers.

Dr. Elena Shembel, CEO and co-founder of Enerize Corporation, commented: "Development of safe, low cost, high efficiency Li-ion batteries is critical for new electronic devices and next generation hybrid electric vehicles. We believe that our partnership will address these requirements, and we are excited to work with FiFe Batteries in this endeavor. Rob Neat has an impressive track record of successful exploitation of IP and technology-based products, including successful management of Li-ion cell manufacturing businesses. We are also looking forward to working with auto manufacturers on the in-vehicle integration and testing of the new Li-ion batteries."
