Next Generation Solid-State Lithium Batteries

Next Generation Solid-State Lithium Batteries

SOLiTHOR’s next generation solid-state lithium battery technology will be used in a range of transport applications ranging from automotive to aviation, marine to space.

SOLiTHOR will produce pouch cells for cell production, module and battery systems. There will be an international test centre accessible to our clients and partners.

In January 2022, SOLiTHOR signed a partnership agreement with imec to cooperate and spearhead the commercialisation of solid-state lithium technology which imec has been developing at its laboratories in Belgium for ten years.

SOLiTHOR’s Research and Development team is based at our premises in Sint-Truiden where our scientists continue to collaborate with imec’s research teams to further develop the solid-state electrolyte and lithium anode.

TOWARDS zero carbon electromobility

Initially, SOLiTHOR will target the key markets of Aviation, Maritime, Space and Heavy Electric Vehicles where safety is critical.

  • For the aviation sector – safe, lightweight cells with high gravimetric density

    Objective: to power electric regional aircraft with a range of up to 5 hours flight time, assisting and supporting Vertical Take Off and Landing (VTOL) aircraft with more secure and longer flight times
  • For the maritime sector – safe cells for surface and sub surface vessels with increased range and low maintenance costs

    Objective: to secure the required levels of safety and increase the distance covered on one charge
  • For the space sector - a specialised lightweight material to reduce operating costs and extend the time spent in space

    Objective: to deliver a lighter battery, reducing weight at lift off
  • For the automotive sector – cells which are capable of powering vehicles with a longer mileage per charge

    Objective: to deliver cells for automobiles that support over 600km of range with faster but much safer charging; also, for heavy electric vehicles, powered with battery systems over 350kWh
