Solidion’s BEEP Platform Solves the Design and Manufacturing Issues of Solid-State Batteries

DAYTON, Ohio, May 07, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Solidion Technology, Inc. (Nasdaq: STI), an advanced battery technology solutions provider, today unveiled their patent-protected bipolar electrode-to-pack (BEEP) technology. Rather than creating individual cells and modules, Solidion’s BEEP technology produces a high-voltage, high-capacity battery pack by stacking and connecting bipolar electrodes and solid electrolyte layers in series and in parallel.

Solid-state batteries are expected to revolutionize the electric vehicle industry with their inherent safety, fast charging, and an achievable range of over 900 miles on a single charge. However, two major issues have prevented the wide-spread commercialization of solid-state lithium batteries – the difficulty and high cost of manufacturing the batteries and the limited space available in an EV to accommodate a bulky battery system. Current battery pack designs devote much of that space to fire mitigation, a large number of connectors between cells or modules, and large volumes of protective housing materials.

Solidion’s BEEP platform technology solves both this design issue and reduces the manufacturing difficulty, while contributing to a dramatically reduced battery weight, volume and cost. This is accomplished due to the BEEP technology pack requiring only one casing and a small number of connectors – instead of the hundreds of housings and connectors in today’s batteries.

“Solid-state batteries are the future of the EV market but commercialization has been held back by design and manufacturing-related challenges,” said Solidion Board Chairman and Chief Science Officer Dr. Bor Jang. “The internal bipolar electrode stacking in our patent-protected BEEP technology is intrinsically simpler and easier to develop as compared to making individual cells and using external cables to connect multiple pre-fabricated cells. Solidion’s BEEP technology has the ability to deliver significantly improved manufacturability and reduced manufacturing cost – ultimately leading to a faster route to commercialization.”

This disruptive platform technology is backed by a superior IP portfolio in solid-state batteries. Solidion’s parent company, Global Graphene Group, was recognized in 2021 as the global leader in the patent landscape of solid-state electrolytes for lithium batteries. KnowMade, a French company specializing in research and analysis of scientific and patent information, analyzed more than 14,400 patent filings related to solid-state Li-ion batteries with inorganic solid electrolytes. Global Graphene Group was one of just two US companies recognized in the list. In 2023, Global Graphene Group was ranked 9th in the world by KnowMade in the category of solid-state battery IP.

Solidion began trading on the Nasdaq on February 5, 2024 following a merger between Honeycomb Battery Company and Nubia Brand International Co., a special purpose acquisition company (SPAC).

About Solidion Technology, Inc.

Headquartered in Dallas, Texas with pilot production facilities in Dayton, Ohio, Solidion’s core business includes manufacturing of battery materials and components, as well as development and production of next-generation batteries for energy storage systems and electric vehicles for ground, air, and sea transportation. Recognized as a global IP leader in both the high-capacity anode and the high-energy solid-state battery, Solidion is uniquely positioned to offer two lines of battery products: (i) advanced anode materials (ready for production expansion); and (ii) three classes of solid-state batteries, including Silicon-rich all-solid-state lithium-ion cells (Gen 1), anodeless lithium metal cells (Gen 2), and lithium-sulfur cells (Gen 3), all featuring an advanced polymer- or polymer/inorganic composite-based solid electrolyte that is process-friendly. Solidion’s solid-state batteries can be manufactured at scale using current lithium-ion cell production facilities; this feature enables fastest time-to-market of safe solid-state batteries. Solidion batteries are designed to deliver significantly extended EV range, improved battery safety, lower cost per KWh, fastest time-to-market, and next-gen cathodes (potential to replace expensive nickel and cobalt with sulfur (S) and other more abundant elements).
