Altairnano Awarded Department of Energy Grant for Battery Research

Reno, NV | Posted on June 7th, 2010

Under the grant, Altairnano will conduct research relating to the surface modification of electrode coatings in battery cells with the objective of increasing temperature and cycle life performance by decreasing reaction rates with the electrolyte.

"This grant represents an important milestone in our work with the Department of Energy and demonstrates the agency's commitment to advancing domestic energy storage solution technologies," said Terry M. Copeland, Ph.D., Altairnano's chief executive officer. "Altairnano's energy storage and battery systems already perform at some of the highest temperature ratings and life cycles."
