Cabot launches first graphene-based additive to improve energy density of lithium-ion batteries

Cabot launches first graphene-based additive to improve energy density of lithium-ion batteries 25 February 2013 Cabot Corp. launched LITX G700, the company’s first graphene-based additive for high energy density lithium-ion battery applications. (Earlier post .) Utilizing graphene material developed on the basis of a new technology platform, this new additive helps lithium-ion battery manufacturers improve cell performance. The LITX G700 conductive additive is a graphene-based additive designed for use in electric vehicle and high-end consumer electronics in which better driving range and longer run times are critical performance features. In 2011, Cabot entered an intellectual property licensing agreement with XG Sciences, Inc. Under the agreement, Cabot licenses intellectual property rights to XG’s xGnP graphene nanoplatelets technology, including detailed know-how rega...
