Given India’s dependence on 100% imported lithium-ion cells for electric vehicle batteries, there exists a compelling drive to cultivate indigenous cell and battery manufacturing capacities to meet the burgeoning demands.

New Delhi: Log9 Materials, one of the leading developers of advanced battery cell technology and EV Mobility Ecosystem products, and Zeta Energy Corp., the lithium-sulfur (Li-S) battery company, announced today a collaborative partnership to create the next-generation of cells and batteries.

The partnership offers significant benefits for both companies. Zeta Energy’s advanced Li-S materials have the potential to unlock new possibilities for Log9 in improving overall cell performance. By incorporating these materials into their packs and modules, Log9 will create next-generation energy storage systems with enhanced range, stability, and affordability. Furthermore, Log9’s expertise in battery system integration will provide Zeta with valuable data to validate their best-in-class Li-S materials, the company said in a media release.

Both companies anticipate that the partnership will yield insights into how lithium-sulfur batteries can be further optimized for a range of market applications.

Pankaj Sharma, Co-Founder of Log9, said, “We intend to bring faster charging, lower priced, and more sustainable battery solutions to the Indian electric mobility market and beyond. We think Zeta Energy’s world-class capabilities in lithium-sulfur battery technology will help us get there faster.”

Tom Pilette, CEO of Zeta Energy, said, “It’s a very synergistic relationship. Log9 has an impressive record of bringing world-leading battery technology to market. Together, we can unlock the power of lithium-sulfur batteries to transform energy storage for electric vehicles, grid storage, construction equipment, and more.”

Log9, an acclaimed materials and energy enterprise, has garnered multiple accolades for its groundbreaking strides in clean energy solutions tailored for both transportation and stationary energy storage. Pioneering the establishment of India’s inaugural commercial lithium-ion cell manufacturing facility, Log9 has spearheaded advancements in fast-charging and durable battery packs catering to commercial vehicle needs, the release said.

Given India’s dependence on 100% imported lithium-ion cells for electric vehicle batteries, there exists a compelling drive to cultivate indigenous cell and battery manufacturing capacities to meet the burgeoning demands of its electric mobility markets.

Zeta Energy is the world’s leading developer of lithium-sulfur battery chemistry, materials and cell technology. Zeta’s sulfurized carbon material leverages the high energy density of sulfur, while preventing the “polysulfide shuttle” effect. Sulfur has long been of interest for batteries because its energy density is many times higher than that of traditional lithium-ion battery materials. Sulfur is also inexpensive and widely abundant, unlike most other materials typically found in the battery supply chain.

Zeta Energy’s lithium-sulfur battery cells use no cobalt, manganese, nickel, or graphite, vastly simplifying and de-risking the supply chain for batteries and energy storage systems. Lithium-sulfur batteries also have the lowest CO2 footprint of any lithium-based batteries and are less vulnerable to thermal runaway, the release added.

The partnership is set to commence on April 21, during Log9’s annual Day Zero anniversary event.
