WAY WITH NEW AND NOVEL
Mentorship from the 'father' of the
The technology used by Recharge Industries™ was developed under the guidance and mentorship of Professor M. Stanley Whittingham, Nobel Laureate for Chemistry, who is recognized as the “father of the lithium-ion battery”. Recharge Industries™ has also successfully connected Deakin University with Binghamton University – home of Professor Whittingham – to collaborate on an ongoing multi-year R&D program to improve the underpinning technology and advancement of the manufacturing process.

Proven Technology – Exceeding Key Metrics
The battery cell chemistry, licensed exclusively to Recharge Industries™ by C4V, has been extensively researched by the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority in a lifecycle assessment.
The report, titled Life Cycle Assessment: C4VLithium-Ion Battery Cells for Electric Vehicles, was completed in October 2019 and found that the type of battery cells, “use fewer metals and less-toxic materials than comparable modelled lithium cell batteries with higher impacts.”
Department of Defense Validation
Technology validated by US Department of Defense research teams.
The technology and battery cells which Recharge Industries™ holds exclusive rights to in Australia, was recently validated by the US Department of Defense (ARL and C5ISR). Our team's capability and the Australian facility's planned scale and production timeline were submitted to the US DoD via our US technology partner which will now be communicated to the numerous procurement and acquisition teams to assist in meeting forecast supply requirements.
Recharge Industries™ uses a unique patented chemistry known as bio-mineralized lithium mixed-metal phosphate (BM-LMP) to create battery cells. This chemistry results in fewer metals and less-toxic materials than comparable lithium cell batteries, making them safer and more environmentally-friendly.
BM-LMP stands for Bio-Mineralized Lithium Mixed-Metal Phosphate. While Recharge Industries™ cannot disclose the exact metals in the battery chemistry, it primarily uses manganese and iron. The technology is a phosphate-based composite cathode that utilizes low-cost materials, molecular doping of lithium-rich bio-mineral in the super-cell crystal structure. The battery technology contains no cobalt or nickel.
Technology Partner: Charge C4V
Our U.S. technology partner C4V, leverages its expertise in electrode design and process development to create next-generation storage materials that can be seamlessly integrated into current battery cell manufacturing lines. This allows for continuous upgrades to the facility without requiring significant infrastructure changes.
Recharge Industries™ has obtained exclusive rights to the technology and battery cell patented chemistry, manufacturing process and technical product designs as well as C4V’s qualified supply chain.
