BioSolar is developing a breakthrough technology to double the storage capacity, lower the cost and extend the life of lithium-ion batteries.
A battery contains two major parts, a cathode and an anode, that function together as the positive and negative sides. Today's state-of-the-art lithium-ion battery is limited by the storage capacity of its cathode, while the anode can store much more.
BioSolar initially focused its development effort on high capacity cathode materials since most of today's Li-ion batteries are "cathode limited." With the goal of creating the company's next generation super battery technology, BioSolar is currently investigating high capacity anode materials recognizing the fact that the overall battery capacity is determined by combination of both cathode and anode. By integrating BioSolar's high capacity cathode or anode, battery manufacturers will be able to create a super lithium-ion battery that can double the range of a Tesla, power an iPhone for two days straight, or store daytime solar energy for nighttime use.
Founded with the vision of developing breakthrough energy technologies, BioSolar's previous successes include the world's first UL approved bio-based backsheet for use in solar panels.
BioSolar is developing a comprehensive line of bioplastic films and resins for solar cell manufacturers, based on its breakthrough bioplastic technology. There are primarily two kinds of solar cells in the market today: traditional crystalline silicon (c-Si) and thin film solar cells. While thin film technology promises lower cost and more efficient manufacturing, it still represents a very small part of the solar cell market. Traditional c-Si solar cells command 94% of the market today while thin film and other non-c-Si solar cells are projected to grow to only 8% by 2010.
Our product roadmap is designed to align BioSolar with market opportunities. Whether solar cells are produced using crystalline silicon, amorphous silicon or other solar technologies, BioSolar can help reduce the cost per watt through the use of its lower cost bioplastics.
