LTO batteries have applications in various sectors, including electric vehicles (EVs), two-wheeler and three-wheeler EVs, commercial vehicles, and energy storage systems.

New Delhi: LTO (Lithium Titanate Oxide) batteries of Log9 Materials, a leading Indian company specializing in advanced battery solutions, have received the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) certification. This certification signifies that Log9’s LTO batteries comply with the stringent safety and performance standards set forth by the Indian regulatory body. This builds trust among consumers and manufacturers, and help accelerate EV adoption in India, the company said.These batteries have enhanced safety due to their inherent thermal and chemical stability, minimising the risk of fire or explosion compared to conventional lithium-ion batteries. Additionally, these batteries are known for their ultra-fast charging capabilities and extended durability, offering a significantly higher number of charge and discharge cycles compared to conventional lithium-ion batteries, translating to a longer battery lifespan for electric vehicles. LTO batteries have applications in various sectors, including electric vehicles (EVs), two-wheeler and three-wheeler EVs, commercial vehicles, and energy storage systems, the company said in a media release.Akshay Singhal, co-founder and CEO, Log9 Materials, said, ”This is a great national milestone in India’s journey of self-reliance in energy storage as Log9 gets validation for its capabilities to develop and process large-capacity lithium-ion battery cells.”

Pankaj Sharma, co-founder and director of Log9 Materials, said, “We are thrilled to announce a major milestone in our journey towards advancing cell technology based on LTO chemistry. Log9 stands as the sole company in India equipped to deliver commercial-grade lithium-ion cells, exemplified by our 50 MWh commercial cell line. Achieving BIS certification for our cells fills us with pride and motivates us to further pioneer in cell innovation, characterization, and the development of unique cell chemistries tailored for tropical climates. Our commitment to pushing boundaries remains unwavering.”

This prestigious recognition verifies compliance with India’s rigorous safety and performance standards for EV batteries. The achievement unlocks a range of benefits. BIS certification translates to enhanced safety for electric vehicles using Log9’s LTO batteries.

Additionally, BIS approval validates the rapid charging capabilities of LTO batteries, paving the way for faster charging infrastructure and improved user convenience. Finally, BIS compliance can unlock new financing avenues for Log9. Investors view this as a mark of quality and safety, potentially leading to easier access to capital for their future endeavours. This financial boost can propel Log9 as a frontrunner in LTO battery technology for the Indian EV market, the release added.
