20C Charging achievable with Organic cathodes

October 2, 2023

Our research, in partnership with Columbia University, shows organic cathodes can bring super-fast charge rates and long life with inexpensive non-metallic materials.

We carried out this research, using an organic cathode developed by Columbia University in partnership with Nuvvon Inc., which highlighted key characteristics: 

  • Inexpensive carbon by-product (does not contain any metals e.g., nickel, cobalt or manganese).
  • Demonstrates very high C-rate and long life with lithium metal anode.
  • Operates at room temperature and ambient pressure.

We are combining technologies to provide cells that are truly solid-state (Separator and Catholyte) with super-fast charge/ discharge and very long cycle life.

This battery technology makes it ideal for high power density demanding applications, such as electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) aircraft, mining equipment, railroad, marine, heavy-duty trucks, power tools and fast DC chargers.

Colin P. Nuckolls, Professor at Columbia University and Director at Nuvvon Inc., presented this research at the recent ‘Dresden Battery Days 2023’ in Dresden, Germany, in his lecture ‘Rethink battery materials: Towards all organic batteries,’If you’d like to learn more about this research, please contact us.
