Matthew Kappers is the CEO of The Coretec Group. The Coretec Group is known for their expertise in silicon nanoparticles to push the boundaries of silicon engineering and battery development. They are using their main expertise to develop an anode with a high concentration of silicon that will significantly boost the performance of lithium-ion batteries.
In this podcast we are going to talk about anodes and how these anodes could potentially be used with other types of batteries and other types of electrolytes. Let us hear from Matthew Kappers on how he and his team work with anodes, which is what makes their company so special!
Besides being an informative discussion, it was also a good conversation, which you can now join!
Here is a list of the topics we cover:
Coretec Group's Endurion battery technology
Solid Electrolyte Interface (SEI) layer
Increasing lithium ion battery capacity by 100% with 20% silicon
Most EV batteries have no silicon
100% silicon anode would increase capacity 10x
Drop in solution
Partner with battery manufacturer
Silicon vs. silicone
Specific energy is per weight
Energy density is energy per volume
Most people say energy density when they mean specific energy
