The start-up

Altris produces a high energy density cathode material for rechargeable batteries with a low-cost production method using only abundant elements.

The need

The battery production industry has a need for low-cost, sustainable electrode materials that are free from nickel, cobalt and lithium. Furthermore, batteries capable of low temperature performance are in strong demand.

The solution

A patented solution for producing a practical cathode material for sodium batteries that is free from nickel, cobalt and lithium. Its elements – sodium, iron, carbon, nitrogen – are accessible, economical and pose no health/environmental hazard. The production process is cost competitive since it runs at low temperatures and pressures. Unlike li-ion batteries, it enables reliable sub-zero performance.

The value proposition

  • Can be transported and stored without risk of explosion.
  • Cheapest battery chemistry in the long run.
  • Good performance in below 0C environment.
  • High energy density.
  • Low investment needed to scale production.
  • The most eco friendly battery technology.
