Advanced batteries

To improve the efficiency whilst reducing the cost and environmental footprint of energy storage options, critical to the transition to a low-carbon and sustainable energy system.

Read our Sustainability Series on Making Better Batteries

Energy accounts for around 60% of total global greenhouse gas emissions. Increasing energy efficiency, developing sustainable energy storage options and the use of renewable energy is crucial to creating more sustainable communities and businesses and resilience to environmental issues like climate change.

WHY THE NEED FOR ADVANCED BATTERIES

The rapid growth in electric vehicles and renewable energy storage solutions is creating a global need for more efficient, cheaper, higher-capacity, and more sustainable energy storage options.

It is estimated that a twelve-fold increase in battery capacity is needed to meet the demand for electric vehicles and renewable energy storage by 2025 alone. While a large part of this growth has been enabled through the performance of lithium-ion batteries, issues around the cost, capacity, safety and sustainability of current lithium-ion batteries will increasingly limit this growth.

There is thus a need for advanced materials for lithium-ion batteries that deliver superior performance and safety at lower cost while at the same time reducing environmental impact.

BATMn Reactor, a game-changer for advanced battery research

Calix is developing advanced materials for lithium ion batteries that deliver superior performance at a fraction of the cost, with improved ease-of-recycling.

With its new BATMn reactor in Victoria (Australia), Calix is developing high performance, affordable, and more recyclable lithium ion hybrid batteries based on nano-active electrode materials.

MEET OUR PEOPLE

Tom Dufty,

Mechanical Project Engineer

“The BATMn Project we are developing on our site at Bacchus Marsh, VIC. It will be a completely separate 0rocess line. We’re hoping to produce battery materials that have very high surface area – ‘nano-active materials’ – in a fully electric calciner, which is pretty well undone around the world.. 

We are in a position with global warming, where we can’t go back in time or undo what have already done… but we can try to evolve technologies to move forward and make a better future for us all.”
