SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA — 13 MAY 2014
New battery design balances the need for cost competitive energy storage that is energy dense, reliable, safe and sustainable
Power Japan Plus today launched a new battery technology – the Ryden dual carbon battery. This unique battery offers energy density comparable to a lithium ion battery, but over a much longer functional lifetime with drastically improved safety and cradle-to-cradle sustainability. The Ryden battery makes use of a completely unique chemistry, with both the anode and the cathode made of carbon.
“Power Japan Plus is a materials engineer for a new class of carbon material that balances economics, performance and sustainability in a world of constrained resources,” said Dou Kani, CEO of Power Japan Plus. “The Ryden dual carbon battery is the energy storage breakthrough needed to bring green technology like electric vehicles to mass market.”
The Ryden battery balances a breadth of consumer demands previously unattainable by single battery chemistry, including performance, cost, reliability, safety and sustainability.
“Current advanced batteries have made great improvement on performance, but have done so by compromising on cost, reliability and safety,” said Dr. Kaname Takeya, CTO of Power Japan Plus. “The Ryden dual carbon battery balances this equation, excelling in each category.”
Path to Market
Power Japan Plus will begin benchmark production of 18650 Ryden cells later this year at the company’s production facility in Okinawa, Japan. This facility will allow the company to meet demand for specialty energy storage markets such as medical devices and satellites. For larger demand industries, such as electric vehicles, Power Japan Plus will operate under a licensing business model, providing technology and expertise to existing battery manufacturers to produce the Ryden battery.
Power Japan Plus is developing the dual carbon battery technology in partnership with Kyushu University in Fukuoka, Japan. Kyushu University is one of the top ranked material science and engineering research universities in the world. For more information, please visit: http://www.kyushu-u.ac.jp/english/index.php
Beyond the dual carbon battery, Power Japan Plus is creating a new, drop-in material with the world’s first and only organic carbon material – Carbon Complex. Made of naturally grown organic cotton, Carbon Complex wields unique properties not seen in other carbon material. By controlling the size of the carbon crystals during production, Power Japan Plus can engineer the Carbon Complex for a variety of high performance applications.
Power Japan Plus will exhibit at the Electric Drive Transportation Association Conference & Annual Meeting in Indianapolis, Indiana on May 20-21, 2014. You can visit Power Japan Plus at booth #112.
