"BESS developed an innovative process to build nanostructures that enable energy storage capacity, faster charging rates, and a longer lifetime for lithium-ion batteries" - any details about this technology?

Hi iniewski. The technology BESS-Technologies licensed has three components: (1) a novel silicon/silicide chemistry that provides at least 3x the capacity of graphite while mitigating the passivation problem upon formation of the SEI layer (the anode has been tested for +1000 cycles), (2) a hyperbranched nanostructure that avoids pulverization and improves charging time and power density (the anode can have more than 2 orders of magnitude higher surface area than bulk silicon), and (3) a simple manufacturing process that uses well known, scalable PVD and CVD processes. It is also worth to note that, as opposed to many "nano-silicon" solutions advertised, this anode technology does not require the use of carbon or any type of binder material to work.

thank you Fernando, sounds exciting...would you be interested in giving a talk on this topic at emerging technologies symposium in Whistler in 2013? details at www.cmoset.com, kris.iniewski@gmail.com
