Polymer lithium sulfur cells battery technology displays double the energy density as well as perfect reliability and lower manufacturing and operating costst compared to other battery technologies on the market. It is considered to be the next generation of battery.
OXIS Energy Limited, specialised in the design, development and commercial production of these batteries, and Arkema, a global leading chemicals producer, have signed a Joint Development Agreement to further improve the performance of these batteries.
The parties have agreed that Arkema will provide access to different specialty materials like carbon nanotubes, electrolyte and advanced technical polymers that could be tested by OXIS for use in developing and extending its technology. The companies want to optimize the conductivity increase of the electrolyte to improve the energy density. To extend the lifetime and safety of the battery, they want to reinforce the mechanical resistance of some components.
