BioSolar, Inc.

BioSolar is developing a breakthrough technology to double the storage capacity, lower the cost and extend the life of lithium-ion batteries. A battery contains two major parts, a cathode and an anode, that function together as the positive and negative sides. Today`s state-of-the-art lithium-ion battery is limited by the storage capacity of its cathode, while the anode can store much more. BioSolar initially focused its development effort on high capacity cathode materials since most of today`s Li-ion batteries are `cathode limited.` With the goal of creating the company`s next generation super battery technology, BioSolar is currently investigating high capacity anode materials recognizing the fact that the overall battery capacity is determined by combination of both cathode and anode.

BioSolar, producer of innovative bio-based solar energy products, is currently developing a breakthrough supercapacitor technology for reducing the cost of storing the energy of the sun. Existing battery technologies, such as lithium-ion batteries, are good for longer-term energy storage, but cannot be charged or discharged rapidly. This limits the use of batteries to power backup applications. Inspired by nature, BioSolar is developing a low cost polymer-based supercapacitor that can be charged and discharged hundreds of times faster than batteries, and will complement batteries for the storage of solar energy. By integrating BioSolar supercapacitors, as the high power frontend to battery banks, daytime solar energy can be quickly and cost-effectively stored for nighttime use. This potentially game-changing technology will allow users of solar energy systems to reduce their dependence or go completely off the electric utility power grid.
