Electrolyte producer NOHMs Technologies becomes Sionic Energy

NOHMs Technologies, a provider of electrolyte products for Li-ion batteries, has announced its relaunch as Sionic Energy, transforming its business to deliver complete battery cell designs that incorporate its technologies into a drop-in, rapidly commercialized, low-cost, high-performance Li-ion technology.

Sionic’s silicon battery cell designs can be integrated into cylindrical, pouch or prismatic cell formats in existing cell production supply chains and infrastructure.

Sionic Energy’s products use pure low-cost micron silicon, integrated with electrolytes designed to improve performance, cycle life and safety. The company’s battery design is agnostic to cathode materials, enabling the extensibility of performance across a variety of current and emerging cathode designs.

Sionic Energy is targeting the automotive, consumer electronics and aviation battery markets, and expects to have its battery design ready for production and commercialization in light aviation (drones) and consumer electronics sectors by late 2022.

“Through collaboration with the exceptional team at NOHMs, our launch of Sionic Energy unites their legacy electrolyte technologies with our recently acquired high-capacity silicon anode technology, from the University of Colorado Boulder, to create a truly market disruptive battery,” said CEO Ed WilliamsWe’re looking forward to addressing the market’s growing demand for a drop-in, next-generation lithium-ion battery technology.”

Sionic Energy has created a licensing model for its battery technology to accelerate and broaden adoption by major commercial markets. Production-scale prototype cells will be available in Q4 of 2021 for customer evaluations and testing.
