New research from Canalys shows that global sales of electric vehicles will represent nearly 50 percent of all passenger cars sold globally by 2030. Lithium-ion battery manufacturers are competing for market share like never before. And while there is an abundant amount of activity in battery development, no one has solved all the charging issues until now. The Coretec Group’s Cyclohexasilane(CHS) has the chemical properties necessary to enable the silicon anodes needed to meet the demands for energy density, cycle life, and faster charging times.

“We want electric vehicle drivers to be able to take the road trip of their dreams across the country. That is why we are working closely with lithium-ion battery manufactures and research institutions as they integrate and evaluate our CHS. We have created a new starting material that requires minimal-to-no process edits and can enable the lithium-ion battery technology needed for widespread EV adoption,” said Dr. Ramez Elgammal, VP of Technology at The Coretec Group.

The energy storage ecosystem is complex, and battery chemistry is both an art and a science. As a result, an extensive amount of research and testing goes into validating any new battery technology – from development in the lab through to larger-scale production – and what works in the lab does not automatically work on a larger scale. Many have tried, many have failed.

Dr.Elgammal adds, “Manufacturers must improve their lithium-ion battery technology to meet customer demand and needs. It is essential for electric vehicle drivers to be able to charge a lithium-ion battery in minutes, the same as cars with traditional internal combustion engines that take 5-minutes to fill-up at a gas station.”

Another critical part of the energy process that has to be taken into consideration is the existing infrastructure. Every day we hear about a new Gigafactory, or electrode manufacturing procedure being built to support the global demand for lithium-ion batteries.

What the industry needs to realize is that the world requires a thoughtful charging station grid to accommodate charging demand, and the distance between those charging stations is a critical factor in widespread electric vehicle adoption.

The Coretec Group’s flagship product is CHS. It is a liquid silicon precursor that has incredible benefits in any application where silicon is needed. Some benefits include better yields, faster depositions, higher purity silicon structures, and lower temperatures- all of which are needed to obtain high-quality films, dielectric layers, and nanostructured materials for next-generation devices.

Given the need for nanostructured silicon in today’s anodes, The Coretec Group’s CHS offers industry advancement for those lithium-ion battery technology companies already exploring nanostructured silicon anodes. CHS Si Anode batteries can deliver the battery performance needed for widespread electric vehicle adoption.

The Coretec Group has partnered with Evonik, a world leader in specialty chemicals, and is shipping to international customers, and globally recognized research institutions to further evaluate CHS use in other applications and continues to expand their IP rights through provisional patents covering the value CHS.

“We are developing joint technology and intellectual property with our partners that will deliver next level performance in their products and create a competitive edge,” says Dr. Elgammal.

The Coretec Group is engineering silicon to improve life. Their product development pipeline includes molecules with CHS as a base element to meet the future needs of advanced materials. The opportunity for their material is endless. The question isn’t where are they going next, the question is where aren’t they.
