Group14’s Silicon-Lithium EV Batteries Deliver Next-Level Performance, having solved the previous Silicon anodes expansion issue

Group14’s flagship product is a silicon-carbon powder marketed under the trademarked name SCC55™, and they are not shy about listing the advantages.

“SCC55™ has five times the capacity and affords up to 50% more energy density than conventional graphite for Lithium battery anodes,” Group14 states. “Its unique hard carbon-based scaffolding keeps silicon in the most ideal form — amorphous, nano-sized, and carbon-encased. The result is the best-in-class anode material that exhibits outstanding first cycle efficiency and long life upon Li-ion battery cycling.” Group14 emphasizes that its technology is based on abundant and “non-exotic” materials.

The point has always been that when lost of money is thrown into research, over time the results will bear fruit. We can expect to see many more improvements by others in battery design as well as manufacturing.
