Li-S Energy Battery

A new Lithium-sulphur battery integrating Boron Nitride Nanotubes to significantly advance battery technology.

The world needs a better battery

Current lithium-ion battery technologies are reaching their theoretical energy capacity limits. There needs to be a fundamental shift and breakthrough in battery technologies.

Lithium-Sulphur batteries

Lithium-Sulphur batteries have many characteristics that are superior to Lithium-ion batteries, but need new technology.

Boron Nitride NanoTubes (BNNT)

BNNT is an advanced nano insulator which has a number of unique properties that significantly improve lithium-sulphur batteries.

About Li-S Energy Limited

With climate change driving the move to renewable energy and electric vehicles (EVs), the demand for batteries is forecast to increase 10x by 2030.

To drive this growth, industry is demanding more energy dense, lighter, faster, environmentally friendly batteries.

Li-S Energy has developed a new lithium-sulphur (Li-S) battery using boron nitride nano-tubes (BNNT) to increase energy density well beyond that of lithium-ion batteries, while extending Li-S battery cycle life.

The World Needs Better Batteries

Greater Energy Capacity
Lithium-sulphur batteries have a theoretical maximum energy density more than five times greater than lithium-ion batteries.
Lighter Weight
Lithium-sulphur batteries are far lighter than lithium-ion, a major advantage for drones, aviation, electric vehicles, wearables and portable devices.
Lower Cost per KWh
Lithium-sulphur batteries do not require the expensive cobalt, nickel, manganese and other heavy metals that are used in many lithium-ion batteries.
Faster Charging
Lithium sulphur batteries recharge faster and hold more energy per charge than lithium-ion batteries.
Enhanced Safety
Lithium-sulphur batteries are less prone to “thermal runaway” than lithium-ion batteries. “Thermal runaway” is the process that causes lithium-ion batteries to explode or catch fire.
Cleaner and Greener
Lithium sulphur batteries contain no heavy metals, eliminating the environmental impact of mining these metals, and reducing the risk of environmental contamination on disposal.

Key Demand Drivers & Customer Groups

The rechargeable battery market is growing exponentially and forecasted to continue growing strongly over the foreseeable future.

Electric Vehicles and E-Mobility
Global climate change targets are driving a once-in-century shift to electric vehicles. European Union legislation bans new petrol and diesel car sales from 2035, while many other governments drive toward similar targets.
Law Enforcement and Defence
Technology used in law enforcement and defence are becoming increasingly dependent on portable electronic devices and the batteries they contain.
Aviation and Drone Technology
Safe, light batteries with a high energy density and quicker recharge times are critical to enable drones and electric aircraft to fly for longer, to enable the scale up of commercial drone applications and to enhance safety in aviation.
Consumer Electronics and Internet of Things
The markets for connected wearable devices such as smart watches, portable personal devices such as wireless speakers and ear/headphones and remote asset monitoring sensors are continuing to grow at a rapid rate. Manufacturers are seeking improved batteries to drive innovation and market adoption.
