UK niobium battery material developer Echion has extended its deal with Taiwanese battery system and cell manufacturer GUS Technology with a joint development agreement (JDA).

The JDA is an expansion of the existing Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between Echion and GUS which secured availability of niobium-based XNO anode material.

The agreement outlines the companies’ joint technical, production and commercial efforts to accelerate the commercialisation of high performance, fast charging, long lasting batteries for heavy-duty applications using Echion’s XNO active anode material.

Echion raises £29m for niobium battery tech

“In the time that we have been working together, it has become clear that XNO will have significant benefits for OEMs,” said Dr. C.C. Chang, Chairman of GUS Technology. “By formalising our partnership with Echion we are fulfilling our commitment to providing our customers with best in class, innovative solutions to mass electrification, and I look forward to continuing to work together with Echion to transform the heavy-duty electric vehicle market.”

The niobium XNO anode material allows lithium-ion batteries to safely fast charge in less than 10 minutes, maintain high performance in extreme conditions and deliver high power over a cycle life of more than 10,000 cycles when used in heavy-duty applications.

“Since the signing of our MoU, the GUS and Echion teams have developed a great working relationship which make me confident on achieving the targeted outcomes of the JDA,” said Jean de La Verpilliere, Chief Executive Officer at Echion. “I look forward to being able to provide original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and end users with a cell that has been specifically engineered for high performance in heavy-duty environments.”
