Graphene Boosts Power and Energy Density in Advanced Battery Applications

XG Sciences graphene nanoplatelets are today’s choice materials for battery and high-density energy storage applications to improve efficiency and battery life by boosting electrical conductivity, enhancing mechanical properties and increasing performance to meet high-demand applications. In addition, XG Sciences graphene powders allow for cell performance improvements that today’s anode materials alone cannot achieve. We offer a complete product portfolio of commercial powders to allow for the scale-up of new technologies in lithium-ion batteries, solid-state batteries, fuel cells, redox flow batteries and start/stop lead-acid batteries.

Lithium-Ion Batteries and Solid-State Batteries for E-Mobility, Pro-Level Power Tools and Electric Vehicles

Graphene nanoplatelets are the material of choice to improve lithium-ion and solid-state battery performance and energy costs. Batteries that utilize graphene formulations have many end-use applications, increasingly in e-mobility and automotive for electric vehicle (EV) applications, grid storage, consumer electronics, aerospace, health care and much more. In addition, graphene-infused high-energy anodes provide many benefits:

  • Maximizes power capacity and increase battery run time
  • Enables fast charge and discharge cycles
  • Supports structural integrity during rapid charging
  • Provides excellent thermal and electrical control
  • Reduces battery weight

Fuel Cells and Redox Flow Batteries for Grid Storage and On-Demand Backup Applications

In fuel cells and redox flow batteries, graphene can replace or reduce the need for expensive redox catalysts. They also aid in improving PEM plate corrosion resistance by enhancing electrical and thermal conductivity, which is key to a fuel cell’s performance. The addition of graphene powders to the bulk molding compound (BMC) formulation can improve the manufacturing of PEM plates by reducing curing times and expanding the ability to produce thinner plates, but with the same mechanical strength characteristics.

Lead-Acid Batteries for Start-Stop Applications and Backup storage

Graphene extends the lifetime and charge acceptance of advanced lead-acid battery technologies used in start-stop vehicles and industrial applications that require fast charge and discharge cycles. The addition of graphene can aid in reducing water loss and improving cold-weather performance while extending the serviceable life of the battery.

Our products are commercially produced for consistency, purity and are backed by an ISO9001-2015 certified quality system.

Graphene for Enhanced Energy Storage

Boosting power, electrical conductivity, and service life of advanced battery applications.
Driven by growth in electric vehicles, renewable energy storage, portable power, and thermal catastrophic events in electronic devices, the industry demand requires novel advanced battery technologies.

XG Sciences is addressing this challenge through the application of its proprietary xGnP® graphene nanoplatelet (GNP) technology to support the next generation of energy storage and batteries.

Improve Performance with Highly Conductive GNPs

The growth in applications for lithium-ion technology is driving requirements for higher power and higher energy storage without a decline in performance over the life of the battery. XG Sciences sees the incredible opportunity to extract significantly more performance from lithium-ion battery chemistries through its innovation and integration of conductive carbon additives.
