Nexeon acquires 24 patents for silicon anodes

Silicon anode specialist Nexeon has acquired three sets of patents relating to the use of silicon in lithium-ion battery anodes. The 24 patents cover the manufacture and use of nano-scale silicon particles, alone or combined with graphite, as well as methods for coating carbon particles with silicon using vapor deposition.

The patents have global coverage, and were acquired from German battery maker Litarion, which went bankrupt in 2018.

Dr Chris Friend, Director of Intellectual Property at Nexeon, said, “Acquisition of these key patents strengthens Nexeon’s position as a consolidator of IP in this space, and provides our customers with access to a wider range of opportunities and potential applications.”
