PolyPlus in the Media



09/16/2016 ARPA-E Award
PolyPlus Battery Company, in partnership with SCHOTT North America, has been selected for a grant award up to $5,250,000 by the United States Department of Energy Advanced Research Projects Agency – energy (ARPA-e) to develop thin electrodes made of lithium foil protected by a flexible Li-ion conductive glass separator sheet.

Under this ARPA-e award, PolyPlus and SCHOTT will work together to enable rechargeable lithium battery performance of over 1000Wh/l and 400 Wh/kg. The approach is based on PolyPlus’ proprietary Li-metal/glass electrode technology, and takes full advantage of commercially scalable glass sheet manufacturing techniques to produce a highly conductive separator that prevents the formation and propagation of dendrites in a lithium metal battery cell.
