La start-up Swiss Clean Battery claims to have solved the biggest challenge of the long-awaited solid-state batteries: their large-scale production.
Via the technology of the company High Performance AG, have developed a solid electrolyte battery that is ready to be manufactured in a gigafactory in Teufen, SwitzerlandExplain.
“With a production scale of 1.2 GWh to 7.6 GWh, Swiss Clean Battery will serve both the Swiss domestic and international markets with sustainable battery storage from 2024,” the company said.
The goal is to build a 20,000 m2 production area to manufacture 7.2 million battery cells per year.
The core of the storage technology is the solid ion conductor, which replaces conventional liquid electrolytes and is formed in the battery cell itself, similar to a multi-component adhesive.
This battery promises up to 100,000 charge and discharge cycleshigh charging speeds and low production costs compared to conventional lithium-ion batteries.
It’s described as “extremely durable, non-flammable, and at least 50% better in terms of environmental performance than conventional lithium-ion batteries,” but doesn’t give too many technical details.
Its application covers practically all areas in which energy can be generated and stored through a battery: electric vehicles (from bicycles and scooters to trucks) and charging infrastructure, solar and wind energy, green hydrogen, grid stabilization electricity or maritime transport.
Of course, it remains to be seen if the technology is really scalable, and if it reaches the milestone of starting to produce it on a large scale or if it is a good magnet for investors.
