Applications include the LytCell lithium-sulfur EV battery, lightweight composites and unique on-board sensors. Lyten’s lithium-sulfur batteries have a 60% smaller carbon footprint than lithium-ion batteries since they do not contain nickel, cobalt, or manganese. Lithium-sulfur battery raw materials can potentially be acquired and manufactured locally in North America or Europe to limit supply chain disruptions. In 2023, Lyten will start to produce lithium-sulfur batteries and 3D graphene-infused composites for specialist markets in addition to EV batteries.
“Among the automotive product innovations being transformed by Lyten 3D Graphene are lithium-sulfur batteries with the potential to deliver more than twice the energy density of lithium-ion, payload-improving lightweight vehicle composites, and new modes of sensing that do not require chips, batteries or wires,” said Dan Cook, President and CEO of Lyten.
