The US and Australia are set for an unprecedented energy revolution, with a new partnership deal between advanced battery research and production company, Recharge Industries™ and leading US lithium-ion battery technology company Charge CCCV (C4V).
The partnership will see Recharge Industries™ and C4V share crucial learnings and insights into greener battery technology, providing Australia with a unique opportunity to become a world-leader in lithium-ion battery technology.
Focused on the development of large-scale advanced battery manufacturing facilities, Scale Facilitation® portfolio company, Recharge Industries™ has its sights set on ramping up Australia’s renewable battery manufacturing capabilities exponentially.
Sharing a building with The M. Stanley Whittingham Laboratory at SUNY Binghamton, C4V is at the cutting edge of renewable battery technology, enabling battery cell products to more effectively and efficiently power electric cars, trucks, boats, aircrafts, solar farms, wind farms, electric grid storage as well as aviation and aerospace.
The pioneering semi-solid-state lithium-ion battery firm was the first US-owned group to commercialise battery cells in New York.
The international transfer of technology and learnings adds significant weight to Recharge Industries™ already enhanced battery cell research and production project, which recently received significant funding via the Australian Federal Government’s Trailblazer Universities program through its partnership with Deakin University’s Recycling and Renewable Energy Commercialization Hub (REACH).
The landmark partnership not only strengthens the technical capabilities of Recharge Industries™ R&D and production arm, Recharge Dynamics™, it also gives Recharge Industries™ access to C4V’s intellectual property for manufacturing and global supply chain.
Scale Facilitation® and Recharge Industries™ Founder, David A.
Collard said the partnership with C4V and the access to their IP will provide unprecedented benefits to Australia while strengthening the US’s resilience also.
“Australia is the world’s largest producer of lithium. We produce nine-out-of-ten required elements needed to produce most lithium-ion battery cell devices and products,”.
“Not only that, we have commercial reserves of graphite - the remaining crucial 10th element. Gaining access to C4V’s technical knowledge allows us to use these precious elements native to Australia to begin manufacturing and commersializing lithium-ion battery cell products locally for domestic and export markets,” said David.
Using C4V’s state of the art “Giga” blueprint, Recharge Industries™ will build its gigawatt-scale lithium-ion battery production facility in Australia with the goal of developing next-generation solutions to real-world and emerging problems. These include the development of predictive safety systems for emerging battery technologies and the reduction of battery cell wastage within large scale battery production facilities.
Looking ahead, Recharge Industries™ will continue leveraging global expertise and exceptional overseas and homegrown talent in advanced battery technology; the Australian Federal Government recently accepted Recharge Industries™ as a ‘Priority Project’, further accelerating the company’s plans to boost Australia’s green battery manufacturing capacity.
