The Morgan Crucible Company plc (Morgan Crucible) announced today the signing of a Joint Development Agreement between its wholly-owned subsidiary, MorganAM&T Inc., and Boston-Power Inc., a leading lithium-ion battery manufacturer, to accelerate development and commercialization of MorganAM&T's advanced anode technologies based on metal-loaded carbon nanoparticles.
"Working with an industry leader like Boston-Power is the next phase in our development of next-generation anode materials for the lithium-ion battery market," said Mark Robertshaw, chief executive officer for Morgan Crucible. "The need for high-energy capacity in batteries for electric vehicles is driving the need for development of new materials. Combining our portfolio of advanced anode technologies with Boston-Power's technical leadership in cell manufacturing will accelerate our development cycle and reduce the time period until our next-generation products see wide-scale commercial use."
MorganAM&T continues to invest in advancing its anode material offerings for the lithium-ion battery market, including energy storage and EV applications. In 2011, MorganAM&T joined with the University of Cambridge under a U.K. government-funded program in which MorganAM&T is developing Cambridge's patented nanotechnology for mass production. MorganAM&T has a separate agreement with Cambridge Enterprise giving MorganAM&T full commercialization rights for those materials in lithium-ion battery applications.
