KeraCel, a World Leader in Solid-state Lithium Ion Batteries, Announced a Breakthrough in its Multi-material Ceramic Battery Using its Proprietary 3D Printing Technology

There are significant challenges in producing ceramic solid-state batteries which KeraCel has overcome. As such, the ability to print battery elements uniformly and with seamless interfaces is highly challenging. Significant R&D effort has gone into developing the materials and the process technology required to successfully build the structure without any defects.

“There are multiple technology breakthroughs in our ability to 3D print a very sensitive part of our ceramic solid-state battery,” said Robert Bagheri, KeraCel’s CEO. "Our lead customers are evaluating our latest generation samples targeted at wearable applications. Over the coming months we will be expanding our engagements with tier one players in mobile and EV, while we continue to improve battery capacity as well as cycle life performance."

KeraCel’s 3D printed manufacturing technology will allow highly cost-effective production of solid-state batteries. These advancements in materials science, electrochemistry, and innovative 3D print process will allow KeraCel ceramic batteries to deliver 1200 Wh/l energy density, which is approximately twice that of standard Lithium ion batteries, and high C rates required by industrial and automotive applications.

About KeraCel 
KeraCel is bringing to market a next-generation Lithium-ion solid-state battery design and manufacturing method that will allow production of cells with ceramic-based electrolytes and lithium metal anodes to achieve energy densities 2-3 times greater, and improved safety, and at a cost of less than 50%, when compared to Lithium Ion cells today for same energy. The 3D print manufacturing process will allow virtually any shape or size of cell to be built for a multitude of applications without changing equipment or tooling under software control.

RBI Solar - Dahlia Has You Covered

What if you could maximize the Ground Coverage Ratio (GCR) on your next project and not have to worry about the complicated variables that come with a tracker system? With a low tilt and clearance design, Dahlia® has the highest GCR of any fixed-tilt system in the marketplace. The system is available in three tilt options (7.5, 10 and 12.5 degrees) and designed to accommodate any sized PV module. The lightweight system is engineered with fewer components, several of which are shipped to job sites pre-assembled. This design feature reduces freight costs and rapidly trims the amount of on-site installation time required to complete construction. Maximizing PV coverage on a site can lead to an increase of production, which creates greater financial return for project owners. Over 100 MW of Dahlia® projects have been deployed across the United States, in regions of variable snow and wind loads. How much can Dahlia® cover and save you on your next project?
