SOLiTHOR, a spin-off firm from the Belgian analysis group Imec, just lately raised €10 million in a seed funding spherical led by Imec. The corporate will use the proceeds to develop and commercialize its solid-state battery cell know-how.
Imec has been investing in solid-state battery tech for 10 years, and goals to allow an meeting course of that’s suitable with present Li-ion battery manufacturing traces.
SOLiTHOR’s group of worldwide scientists is predicated at Leuven and the Energyville innovation hub in Genk, Belgium, the place it has a pilot battery manufacturing line.
“SOLiTHOR’s know-how is exclusive and is predicated on breakthrough chemistry and elements—the nano-solid composite electrolyte and the nano-anode,” mentioned Huw Hampson-Jones, founder and CEO of SOLiTHOR. “This revolutionary know-how will enhance power density [and] charging speeds, enhance security, [and] be far simpler to fabricate than different solid-state batteries.”
