Natrion is pushing the boundaries of materials science to develop new batteries and battery components that eliminate fire risk while diminishing material costs. Natrion’s new Lithium Solid Ionic Conductor (LISIC) combines a proprietary high-performance ceramic made from a clay mineral that is already used in cosmetics and paper with a type of plastic that’s typically found in building fire insulation. The result is a component that can be integrated into existing battery assembly lines in place of liquid electrolytes to eliminate battery fire risk. Natrion is developing its own sodium-ion battery architecture that will pair all of the safety benefits of LISIC with chemistry that replaces lithium with sodium.
