DAYTON, OHIO, November 22, 2019 – Global Graphene Group (G3) and Alison Asia Pacific Ltd. (Alison) have signed a Letter of Intent (LOI) for business over the next five years. Alison, a Hong Kong-based company, plans to purchase over 300 metric tons of silicon oxide anode material from G3.
Alison’s products are widely used in different industries such as energy, environmental protection, sewage treatment, and other fields. G3’s silicon oxide anode will support Alison’s rechargeable batteries. G3 will ramp up production of its silicon oxide anode to meet demand.
“This LOI will drive expansion in our Dayton, Ohio, and Taiwan production facilities over the next five years,” said John Davis, G3 Chief Operating Officer. “This is a significant amount of product to produce, and we will expand our team to meet these needs. We look forward to our partnership with Alison and helping them enhance their products.”
Silicon monoxide (SiO) is an emerging anode material to be utilized in high-energy Li-ion batteries (LIBs). SiO's stable structure makes it a promising anode capacity booster as a drop-in solution to improve the energy density of LIBs. A thin carbon coating is necessary to secure high active material utilization and reduce irreversible loss during cell formation. G3 has developed graphene-SiO material with high capacity (> 1,500 mAh/g), good first cycle efficiency (> 75%), and low swelling (close to the graphite anode).
G3 holds key patents for this technology and self-sustaining graphene supplies, which lead to a cost-effective SiO anode product and is part of G3’s cutting-edge graphene-enabled battery products.
