BESSTECH's Innovative Battery Technology is Highlighted During Featured Presentations at SEMICON West 2015

CEO Fernando Gómez-Baquero delivers invited remarks at the events Silicon Innovation Forum and Semiconductor Technology Symposium

Albany, NY - BESSTECH LLC, a developer of innovative components that improve lithium-ion battery performance with reduced cost, was well represented at leading semiconductor industry tradeshow SEMICON West 2015 as CEO Fernando Gómez-Baquero delivered presentations on July 14 at two of the events high-profile gatherings.


BESSTECH was among the start-up companies seeking investment capital that was invited to present at the Silicon Innovation Forum. Gómez-Baquero discussed how the advent of roll-to-roll (R2R) semiconductor processing - which enables BESSTECHs low-cost, high-performance, silicon-based anodes for lithium-ion battery applications - can serve the needs of both the traditional lithium-ion and growing solid-state battery space, driving significant performance improvements along with dramatic cost reductions.

Later that day, Gómez-Baquero spoke at a Semiconductor Technology Symposium panel exploring opportunities for IDMs, foundries and semiconductor supply chain providers to expand into adjacent markets. BESSTECH was featured as one of the companies that has successfully penetrated emerging opportunities by applying more efficient semiconductor processing techniques into lithium-ion battery formats.

"BESSTECH is delighted to have had the opportunity to share its innovative technology with participants and attendees at the seminal SEMICON West 2015 tradeshow," said Gómez-Baquero. "By integrating the technology roadmap and process know-how of the semiconductor industry, BESSTECH is poised to capitalize on the need for more energetic, lighter and faster lithium-ion batteries to serve the fast-growing global market for both consumer and industrial solutions."

BESSTECHs anode technology, which is exclusively licensed from SUNY Polytechnic Institutes Colleges of Nanoscale Science and Engineering (CNSE), can produce lighter lithium-ion batteries that charge faster - with charging rates as low as 6 minutes - have longer times between charging, and offer increased lifetimes of more than 1,000 cycles.

Featured Product

Stat-X® Condensed Aerosol Fire Suppression

Stat-X® Condensed Aerosol Fire Suppression

Stat-X® Condensed Aerosol Fire Suppression is a solution for energy storage systems (ESS) and battery energy storage systems (BESS) applications. This includes in-building, containerized, and in-cabinet applications. The Stat-X product was tested for efficacy in putting out Li-ion battery fires. It was found that the Stat-X agent successfully extinguished single and double cell battery fires. This testing was conducted in parallel with a large battery fire testing program. DNV GL Energy conducted the testing and validated effectiveness of the Stat-X aerosol agent on cell level Li-ion battery fires.
