Introducing Silicon into the anode so that the energy density of a battery increases and still lasts for many years is a true challenge. Cenate has after more thousands of iterations developed a new, highly efficient and lasting solution to this problem. Our new proprietary materials have characteristics that make them a perfect match for long lasting silicon anodes with record high energy density.

Silicon Nano Composites
Our Silicon Nano Composites are our latest and brand new product series – a proprietary, new material that can be used as a drop-in replacement in todays Lithium batteries
Beyond nano technology
Higher energy density
Cenate’s new nano composites can reduce battery size by up to 30% and increase energy density by more than 40%. Our very high capacity, Coulumbic efficiency and calendaring strength make our products perfectly suitable for record high battery energy densities.
Lower carbon footprint
Currently, most of the battery anode materials for EV batteries rely on graphite-based active materials. Synthetic graphite (primarily used in EV batteries) is produced by a very energy inefficient industrial process (requires high temperatures over a long period of time) and results in high direct CO2 emissions.
One kilo of Cenate’s silicon-based anode material can replace 4 to 7 kilos of graphite, thereby reducing the CO2 emissions per kWh by more than 94% compared to today’s practice. Additionally, the use of Cenate’s products will increase capacity and reduce costs for electric vehicle batteries, thereby contributing to make EVs more attractive and increasing the transition speed from combustion engine vehicles to EVs.
Lower production cost
With the use of our material, all the batteries produced in a battery factory will have higher capacity so that the total number of GWh produced in the battery factory will increase, without any changes in the current production lines or capital needs. Our high Coulumbic efficiency will also contribute heavily to lowering the battery production cost compared to other silicon anode materials currently being used.
Suitable both for graphite based and
Silicon containing anodes can be classified in two categories;
(i) The anodes that use graphite as a starting point and applies silicon around it and
(ii) the anodes that are based on completely new micron size particles that are developed from nano silicon particles without the use of graphite.
Cenate’s particles are suitable for both these approaches, and is currently also being used by both.
Silicon is a non-toxic material and the most abundant element on earth. Cenate’s silicon-containing anode materials have undergone rigorous testing inhouse and in third-party labs to ensure their safety under normal operating conditions, and have been proven to meet the required safety and quality requirements.
