Enerize and FiFe partner on Li-Ion batteries for HEVs

Enerize Corporation and FiFe Batteries Ltd. have formed a partnership to develop rechargeable lithium-ion (Li-ion) batteries for applications including hybrid-electric vehicles (HEV).

The batteries will feature advanced electrode materials based on new types of titanium dioxide (TiO2) used by FiFe Batteries, as well as high conductivity/high tap density manganese dioxide (MnO2) and low-cost, modified natural graphite developed by Enerize Corporation. The firms said these 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.
