Wildcat Discovery Technologies is working with the Tianmu Lake Advanced Energy Storage Technology Institute (TIES) in a new multi-year project geared towards the development and optimization of high energy-density lithium-ion batteries.
Wildcat will use its high-speed testing capabilities to provide TIES with as much data as possible. In turn, TIES’s team (headed by Professor Hong Li), will furnish the data analysis, material preparation and testing, and computational prowess needed for rapid research.
“We are honored to collaborate with Professor Li and TIES, and look forward to expanding the cooperation as the teams get to know one another,” said Wildcat CEO Mark Gresser. “Our high-throughput experimentation platform coupled with Professor Li’s computational capabilities and pilot plant should prove very powerful for the development of new materials.”
