Lithium batteries are almost universally integrated in modern electronics applications due to their high efficiency and scalability. However, the liquid lithium-ion electrolyte utilized in these batteries has a multitude of safety concerns including flammability, toxicity, and the ability to explode if short-circuited. These issues lead to problems while operating in hazardous environments, more stringent transportation regulations, and pose a threat to the personal safety of consumers. Geometric Energy Corporation is working in conjunction with the Thangadurai Group to address these problems by developing an all-solid-state sodium-ion battery system. This system will be non-flammable, non-explosive, and non-toxic, eliminating these issues that are present in liquid-lithium batteries. Our battery technology will be applicable anywhere a liquid-lithium-ion battery is currently used, including the electric vehicle sector, personal electronics, and grid-scale applications.
