Sicona produces Silicon-Carbon anode materials that supercharge next-gen Lithium-ion batteries
Our innovative SiC battery materials technology delivers up to 50% increase in energy density over conventional graphite-only Lithium-ion battery cells. By leveraging silicon metal Sicona delivers high performance battery materials at mass market scale, without costing the earth.
Sicona’s SiC battery anode materials enable improved performance of today’s Lithium-ion batteries at unmatched price and scale.
We develop high performance battery materials that are truly scalable and don't cost the earth.
Our Silicon Carbon material has over 4.5 times the capacity of graphite with equivalent first cycle efficiency, surface area, and tap density.
Utilising a top-down process Sicona has cracked highly efficient mechanical Silicon Metal reduction to create ideal nanoparticles for intended applications. Further treatment in specialised coating processes create the unique material qualities that our customers demand.
The Sicona SiCx™ is a simple drop-in product that requires no changes in the current battery production processes, and is fully compatible with next-gen dry electrode technology.
Sicona’s technology does not rely on expensive, dangerous, bottlenecked and emissions intensive Silane gas. Sicona enables customers to access unmatched prices and scales for maximum positive impact.
By leveraging silicon metal, Sicona delivers high performance battery materials at mass market scale, without costing the earth.
Silicon metal is abundant, safe, cost effective, and globally accessible unlike Silane gas.
Sustainably sourced Silicon from reputable, low risk suppliers in Inflation Reduction Act compliant jurisdictions.
Energy efficiency and affordability
Enabled by up to 50% higher energy density in Lithium-ion batteries accelerating Electric Vehicle adoption.
Accelerating the transition to a sustainable energy future, reducing reliance on fossil fuels for ICEs and their associated GHG emissions causing global warming, thereby mitigating climate change.
We see a future where EVs are cheaper, drive further, charge faster and energy storage batteries are accessible to all.
By using our SiC product in existing Li-ion batteries this future can be realised from today. We specifically design Sicona’s SiC product to seamlessly integrate with existing battery manufacturing processes and supply chains.
