Sakuu, the innovator of Swift Print solid-state battery technology, has entered a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with LiCAP Technologies, a leader in sustainable and scalable electrode coating solutions. Under the MOU, the two companies will partner to establish best practices for end-to-end development and the reliable commercial supply of premium electrodes for Sakuu’s additively manufactured solid-state battery technology.

Through this partnership, Sakuu plans to license LiCAP’s novel and proprietary battery electrode technology. Further, LiCAP plans to provide high-performance electrodes for Sakuu’s anticipated at-scale solid-state battery production needs, and to co-develop Sakuu’s next-generation ultra-high energy density batteries.

“We are pleased to have established this relationship with LiCAP towards introducing and commercializing sustainably printed solid-state batteries,” said Arwed Niestroj, SVP of Customer Enablement at Sakuu. “LiCAP’s electrodes can substantially increase energy and power performance of Sakuu’s battery cells. Its innovative and cost-effective electrode technology can further promote performance, cost-savings, and product recyclability across our planned AM solid-state battery line.”

Sakuu’s solid-state batteries

Sakuu’s cost-effective and safe ultra-high energy density solid-state batteries, which are currently in development, can be printed in custom shapes and sizes and are anticipated to be 50% smaller and 30% lighter compared to established roll-to-roll manufacturing processes. LiCAP’s novel electrode solution is anticipated to become an important component of these batteries.

“We are extremely impressed with Sakuu’s AM battery manufacturing concept and see many synergies with our sustainable and cost-effective electrode platform. Sharing sustainability and performance goals with Sakuu will ensure long-term mutual growth,” said Linda Zhong, President of LiCAP Technologies. “We are excited that a company which we believe is on the verge of becoming a significant driver of product and process innovation in the energy storage space is working with our technology for their game-changing solid-state battery concept.”

Manufacturing scalability is widely considered one of the biggest challenges faced by developers of solid-state batteries, and Sakuu is anticipated to provide a promising solution to these challenges.
