Revolution at lithium batteries

A recent development of OGRON BV, the Dutch company, is promising to revolutionise the Lithium battery technology and battery and energy storage technologies in general.

  At the European patent office

The company has applied for patent protection at the European patent office. The key element of this invention is an innovative technology used for the coating of the cathodes and anodes: The active materials, without any additives, are thermo-sprayed onto the collector foils resulting in their firm adhesion to the surface. This process is suited for all Transitional metal oxides, Lithium metal phosphates (olivine) and silicates.

  Thermal spraying

With thermal-spraying, in essence, a gas flow (e.g. nitrogen) is brought to extremely high speed. The selected material, in powder form, is then added. Using thermal spraying, the desired coating materials are fused ore melted with different technologies in a burner and deposited onto the surface of the component.

To ensure grouting of the melted particles on the surface it is mostly previously scored by radiation. This creates a solid adhesive layer.

  Significant improvement of the electric conductivity

Looking, for example, at the cathode, a significant improvement of the electric conductivity is achieved. At the same time, the thermal stress for collector foils and active material is negligible.

As result, it will be possible, for the first time, to manufacture Lithium polymer cells/batteries which are long-lasting (30 years and more) can be recharged very fast and can be manufactured in all dimensions

Lithium has the best expectations to solve our problems at our mobility and the day/night balancing of a photovoltaic oriented power supply.

  Break through at lithium batteries

Much longer service life and an evident reduction at the production costs. A new generation of lithium energy storage crucial for oil exit and climate protection.

New lithium technic without thermical problems
This invention is avoiding all thermal problems which, sofar, are customary for conventionally manufactured Lithium batteries.

Lithium revolution: exchange every 10 years the electrolyte
As mentioned above, the OGRON technology is using only active materials and no additives. As a result, only the electrolyte is determining the length of the useful life

Large Ion Battery Technology and Application
Henny Wiggers, managing director of OGRON BV, announced that the company will be present during the 5th International Symposium of Large Ion Battery Technology and Application

Significant contributions to the new lithium energy storage
Microtech (OGRON USA) developt in the last 4 years a special coiler and an automatic package system for the cells, making it easy to exchange the electrolyt.
