Altris specialises in producing highly sustainable cathode materials for rechargeable sodium batteries. Altris was founded on the idea that in order for a truly sustainable future to be realised, safer, more environmentally friendly and affordable batteries are vital. This is why we produce the world’s first high performing positive electrode material made from completely renewable and low cost materials.
Altris was founded in 2017 with the aim of producing highly sustainable cathode materials for rechargeable sodium batteries to enable a renewable future. Our research focuses on the development of cathode materials that are composed of widely abundant materials. Altris’ first product is an iron based electrode material for sodium batteries, called Fennac®,which is produced in large quantities via a low energy process. The material has many similarities with lithium iron phosphate (LFP): approximately the same voltage and capacity, with no thermal runway. Compared to LFP though, Fennac® contains more abundant raw materials, is less costly to produce, and also has the potential to have higher power and better performance in low and high temperatures. We believe that batteries should enable a renewable future without an increase in cost to the customer or the environment. To this end, Altris is collaborating with Swedish, European and Asian partners to introduce the technology to the mass market.
