VIDEO: BATMn Reactor, a game-changer for advanced battery research

Making Better Batteries

Joffrey Bourdareau \ January 8, 2020
Back to the opening ceremony of the BATMn reactor, designed to make a range of nano-active materials for advanced batteries, where the need for precision control of the process conditions is critical for electrochemical performance.

BATMn will be a key provider of next-generation electrode materials for the recently announced CRC-P for Advanced Hybrid Batteries which Calix leads in collaboration the Institute for Frontier Materials and BAT-TRI Hub at Deakin University and specialist chemicals manufacturer Boron Molecular Ltd Pty.

This project is supported by the Australian government, and Calix was honoured to welcome during the inauguration at Bacchus Marsh, Senator David Van, representing Karen Andrews – Minister for Industry, Science and Technology – as well as Mayor of Moorabool David Edwards.

Calix has also been invited to join the $150m Future Batteries Industries Co-operative Research Centre (“FBI-CRC”) as a key participant, given the role its technology could play not only in developing advanced battery materials, but also in improving extractive mineral techniques such as Lithium from Spodumene ore.

BATMn is Calix’s first all-electric reactor, and the commissioning process has proven Calix’s proprietary technology can be run entirely by electricity. This has wide-reaching implications for the application of Calix’s technology in other industrial applications, such as lime and cement manufacture, paving the way to an entirely zero emissions process where the electricity for heating is sourced from renewables.

The commercialisation roadmap for advanced battery materials is now in play. Over the next three years, Calix will be using the BATMn reactor for the development of low-cost, safe, and easier to recycle electrode materials for lithium ion battery technology.

Additionally, longer term research and development programs are underway focused on the development of high performance nano-active materials for next-generation, solid-state and post lithium electrochemical energy storage technologies through Calix’s involvement in the storEnergy and POLYSTORAGE consortiums, involving many of Australia, and Europe’s, leading universities, research institutes and industrial partners.
