With a New CEO at the Helm, Battery Start-Up Theion Unveils Crystal Battery for all Mobile Applications
With a new ceo at the helm, battery start-up Theion unveils crystal battery for all mobile applications.
Theion, a global battery manufacturer of lithium-sulfur cathode technology, announced the appointment of Dr. Ulrich Ehmes as CEO and the upcoming commercial availability of its Crystal Battery for applications, beginning with the aerospace sector.
Dr. Ehmes, who has a long track record of industrialising battery production at companies like Swiss-listed lithium-ion battery company Leclanché, will lead the commercialization of Theion’s innovative lithium-sulfur cathode technology, which is targeting triple the range and usage time compared to conventional lithium-ion cells.
Theion’s battery innovation is based on sulfur – a material available In abundance without harmful mining (a byproduct of industrial processes). Sulfur replaces cathode materials with high processing cost and high metal content like nickel and cobalt.
As a result, sulfur is not only 99% cheaper to source than the cathode materials, used in existing state-of-the-art lithium-ion batteries, but Theion’s battery cells also require 90% less energy to produce – from raw material to finished cell.
Under the leadership of Dr. Ehmes, Theion will leverage his decade-long experience in the battery manufacturing sector to scale production. Dr. Ehmes also serves on the Board of major battery research clusters funded by the German Ministry of Research and Education, and is a member of European and German battery associations.
