PolyPlus Battery Company
PolyPlus started operations in Berkeley, California in 1991 based on innovations made by two scientists at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory for an environmentally friendly and cost-effective lithium/organosulfur battery. PolyPlus also developed and patented the related lithium/sulfur battery, which has been licensed to a U.S. manufacturer and is now a commercial product. The management team at PolyPlus Battery Company is composed of Dr. Steven J. Visco, Chief Executive Officer & CTO and Founder; Rudolph Hurwich, President & CFO and Founder; Prof. Lutgard C. De Jonghe, Chairman & Founder; Dr. May-Ying Chu, COO & Founder; and Dr. Eugene Nimon, Director of Research.
PolyPlus Battery Company currently has 27 employees including 7 PhDs. Since its founding in 1990, the Company has been supported by a combination of private, industry and government funding.
PolyPlus Battery Company recently made a breakthrough in lithium metal battery chemistry involving the use of a patented multi-layer solid electrolyte that chemically isolates the Li electrode from the catholyte, allowing the construction of lithium metal/aqueous batteries with unprecedented energy density. The Company is presently focused on the development of Lithium/Air and Lithium/Seawater batteries which are high-energy, non-toxic, and environmentally friendly. PolyPlus has an extensive patent portfolio covering key aspects of its technology including lithium-sulfur batteries, protected lithium anodes, lithium-air and aqueous-lithium batteries.
