LeydenJar says its silicon anode boosts battery energy density by 70%

LeydenJar Technologies, a Dutch spinoff of the applied research institute TNO, has developed a new battery anode that’s made from 100% silicon. The company says this provides two key benefits: batteries with a 70% higher energy density (1,350 Wh/L) and 62% lower CO2 emissions than current models. The anode is ready for production, and LeydenJar… Read more »

Dutch startup LeydenJar to open pilot plant for Li-ion batteries with silicon anodes

Dutch startup LeydenJar is opening a pilot plant to manufacture new-generation batteries that utilize pure silicon anodes, which the company says can store 50% more energy than conventional lithium batteries. LeydenJar and its development partners hope to use the pilot plant to demonstrate that batteries with silicon anodes can be manufactured for the same price… Read more »
