In partnership with world-renowned European research and chemical materials companies, SOLiTHOR is breaking new ground as it develops rechargeable solid-state lithium batteries for a sustainable Aerospace industry.


Savings with SOLiTHOR

With their higher energy, power densities, and the use of specialised lightweight materials, SOLiTHOR's rechargeable solid-state lithium cells will benefit space craft operating at altitudes of 25km and above. Operating costs will be reduced, range will be increased, and the amount of time spent in space will be extended.

SOLiTHOR’S technology has the potential to save space agencies a significant amount of money - a key driver for widespread adoption of our rechargeable solid-state lithium technology.

For every kilogram saved, SOLiTHOR estimates a reduction of US$20,000 in launch costs.

SOLiTHOR’s Solutions to Aerospace Requirements

  • High-performance needs - Li-metal anode and pouch cell design
  • Enhanced safety - intrinsically safe solid electrolyte, thermally stable up to 300°C (at least) resulting in  denser packs
  • Optimal default working temperature range - easier battery thermal management systems (BTMS)
  • Thinner and lighter cells allowing for higher energy density - perfect for space missions
  • A non-flammable electrolyte – reducing the risk of battery fires –  a critical feature for satellite applications
  • Greater charge - discharge cycles – a more sustainable and cost effective solution for long-term satellite missions
  • Sustainable production process - lower temperature requirements compared to other solid-state batteries
